Your attorney can ensure that everything is filed appropriately. The DeKalb County courts have certain local rules in an uncontested divorce filing that other counties do not have, and our divorce attorneys in Fort Payne are familiar with these county specific requirements.

There are generally two ways to file divorce, uncontested or contested. An uncontested divorce is where both parties are in complete agreement and it is an easy and much cheaper way to get a divorce. Any other way you file divorce is called a contested divorce, since there are issues that the parties are not in agreement on at the time of filing.

Should you be looking into a contested divorce, then depending on your circumstances, there’s a possibility of us quoting you a flat fee to handle your filing. The process for contested divorce starts when one of you files a Complaint and has your spouse served with the paperwork. Once served, your spouse will have thirty days to file a response called an Answer. At that point, both sides can attempt to resolve their contested issues. Should the disagreements not be resolved, then the judge will decide these issues for both parties at a trial. For a contested divorce,  we invite you to give our Fort Payne attorney a call today for more information.
