Quick & Cheap Huntsville Uncontested Divorces
If you and your spouse have no contested issues, then our divorce attorney may be able to get you a cheap uncontested divorce. To get an uncontested divorce in Huntsville, you and your spouse must have reached an agreement. Filing an agreement when your divorce is started is sometimes called an uncontested or no fault divorce. Our divorce lawyers in Huntsville are currently charging $390 or $490 for simple uncontested divorces, depending on whether you have minor children of the marriage or not.
To get one of our cheap uncontested divorces in Madison County, both spouses must have already reached an agreement concerning all marital issues prior to the divorce being started. Also, this is only for the attorney fees and does not include the fee that each court charges when a divorce is filed. This fee can very greatly from county to county. This fee must be paid prior to us filling your uncontested divorce. Even in simple, uncontested divorce, it is important to retain a local divorce lawyer to prepare your uncontested divorce documents.
A local Huntsville divorce lawyer is needed since they are aware of the local requirements in your county. Where you start your divorce depends on many factors, and once you have spoken with our attorney we can determine where it is most appropriate to begin the case. There are also certain clauses and language that may be required in your Settlement Agreement and other documents. This means that if you obtain divorce documents from an online document preparation company, instead of a local Huntsville divorce attorney, then their documents will not likely have the local language and clauses that are required by the Madison County judges.
For example, in Madison County the Answer must contain very specific language that is not required in other counties across the state. Most of the time, not having the correct language in the Answer can cause a simple, no fault divorce to be dismissed. If you need a divorce attorney in Madison, Huntsville, Meridianville, Harvest, Hazel Green, or New Hope, then your divorce will likely be filed in the Madison County Circuit Court. Huntsville is the county seat of Madison County with the courthouse being located in downtown Huntsville. Huntsville is located in Northern Alabama and borders Morgan and Limestone County.
Our Huntsville office is located in the Providence Community. We can counsel you through your divorce even if you live in the areas surrounding Madison County in such cities as Decatur, Athens, Scottsboro, Florence, Albertville, or Cullman. Our Huntsville and Decatur divorce lawyers routinely file divorces in Morgan County. We also handle divorces in Limestone & Marshall County.
Our divorce attorney is a proud member of the Huntsville Bar Association and the Better Business Bureau for North Alabama. Take a look at our profile with these organizations for reviews from former clients. If you have any questions about filing for divorce locally in Huntsville or any other area of Northern Alabama, then contact our Huntsville divorce lawyers and we will be happy to speak with you.
Contested Divorce Attorneys in Huntsville
Beyond just uncontested, our Huntsville divorce lawyers also handle contested divorces. When there is no agreement reached beforehand and there are disputes to settle between the two parties, you file a contested and serve your spouse with a Complaint. Once officially served, the spouse counters by hiring an attorney to represent them and to help them file a formal response. The following hearings are set and a then a judge decides the disagreements that you two could not resolve on your own.
Our local divorce attorney can help you file a contested divorce and serve your spouse. It is, however, important to note that the fees are significantly higher in a contested divorce than an uncontested divorce. As do most divorce lawyers, we require a retainer for such services. Our divorce attorney bills hourly, so how much it comes out to depends on how complicated the work is and how much of it is needed. What you pay is dependent on how long it takes to resolve your marital issues in the divorce.
A ballpark amount for contested divorce retainers is usually at least several thousand dollars or more, depending on the complexity of the issues involved and how contested they are. Expect a higher amount when there are minor children involved, but there are other factors considered when quoting a retainer.
Reach out to our office today to find out how much of a retainer we would require up front to begin working on your case. Expect a brief phone consultation with our Huntsville divorce lawyer before we can quote you a fee, especially if there are minor children or other potentially complex issues involved. We can set up an appointment in our Providence office and get your divorce filed. Let our Huntsville divorce attorney fight for you in your divorce case.
