Fast Divorces in Alabama
When a divorce is filed, it is usually labeled in the Court system as an uncontested or a contested divorce. Uncontested divorces are the quickest way to get a fast Alabama divorce. It is where everyone reaches an agreement before anything is filed. Reaching the agreement before paying for a divorce lawyer is the quickest way to get a divorce fast, since all that the attorney has to do is prepare and file the legal documents.
The costs of a fast uncontested divorce are much cheaper than filing for divorce with no agreement since there are no issues to argue about. In an uncontested divorce, the legal documents are prepared by the lawyer. When the paperwork is signed by both spouses, then it can be filed and the divorce process began.
The Court will usually issue the divorce decree about a month or two after filing (depending on where you file and the judge that gets your case it can take longer). In most counties you will not go to court and can get your decree by email and mail without having to take off work. If you need a quick divorce in Alabama then we can help.
There are no hearings or court dates since an agreement is reached about all assets, custody, and debts. Every county has a different process for obtaining a fast divorce, so each court can have their own local requirements. Only a few require hearings when there are children of the marriage and only one that we know of currently requires an appearance without children in the marriage. The local rules may change, but we file divorces all over the State of Alabama and keep up with the local rules. This way our divorce lawyers can obtain the easiest divorce that you can get.

Fast Alabama Divorces
Our divorce lawyers currently charge $390 for attorney fees in simple no fault divorces without minor children of the marriage and $490 with minor children. The process is pretty simple with us. Our office will gather some information from you about the agreement you and your spouse have reached. Then you submit the questionnaire, which can be filled out online, sent to us by email or mail, or you can drop it off at our office. You also have to pay the attorney fees, which can be done online or at our office as well. Once we have the questionnaire and payment, our attorney or their paralegal will contact you directly to discuss your agreement. Then our fast divorce lawyer prepares the paperwork for you to get signed and returned with the filing fee.
After receiving the signed documents and filing fee our office takes it from there. We file the divorce and get your divorce decree as quickly as possible for you. The fastest you can have the divorce be official is about thirty days from the filing date. However, some judges can issue something called an interlocutory decree. This is where they sign your divorce decree within a few days after we file it electronically, but the decree states that it will not take effect for thirty days. In such counties, you may technically get your divorce decree within a day or two but it will just not become effective for about a month.
Our local divorce attorneys are always here to answer your questions throughout the divorce process and can even do an in person consultation if you want. However, you do not have to meet for a fast divorce. If both spouses already have an agreement that they understand completely and do not have any questions for the attorney, then it is just paperwork to be prepared, signed, and filed with the Court.
An uncontested divorce is the fastest way to get a divorce without dragging the case out in the court system. If you are looking for a fast divorce, then give our local Birmingham divorce attorney a call today.
