Tuscaloosa Cheap Divorces
The first step to getting a cheap divorce in Tuscaloosa is to make sure that you and your spouse are in complete agreement on all issues. That means you must agree on child support, custody, and even property division. If there is something that not addressed in the agreement, especially concerning the minor children, then the judge will likely issue something called a deficiency and make you address it to get your cheap divorce in Tuscaloosa County.
We are able to charge the cheaper attorney fee rate since we are just preparing your paperwork and, once you and your spouse have properly executed it, filing it with the Court and getting the decree to the judge to sign. If you cannot get the documents signed or your spouse is refusing to sign them, then getting a cheap and easy divorce in Alabama is not going to work and you will need to file a contested divorce.
Visitation arrangements, and anything else in your settlement agreement, must be in the best interests of the children or a judge will not sign off on it. This means if you are doing some confusing visitation schedule that the judge feels would be damaging to the children, he or she might not sign off on it even though you are in agreement. This is why it is always important to speak to a local Tuscaloosa or Northport divorce attorney to make sure you know the local rules and will be able to get your cheap divorce in Tuscaloosa.
