There are generally two ways to file for a divorce in Jasper, either uncontested or contested. An uncontested divorce is where an agreement is signed prior to the divorce being filed. Since an agreement has been reached at the time of filing, the case is labeled uncontested. There are no hearings necessary since everything has already been agreed upon by the parties.
Any other way a divorce is filed is considered a contested divorce. In a contested divorce, the case begins by the filing of a document called a Complaint. This document is filed and served on the other spouse, who then has thirty days to file their appropriate response.
If a response is filed, then the two sides will need to reach an agreement or there will eventually be a trial. After a trial, the judge will decide the contested issues for you. If no response is filed within thirty days of the spouse being served, then you may be able to get something called a default divorce. This is basically a divorce without the other spouse’s participation. If you are unable to locate the other spouse in order to serve them, then you may be able to get a type of default divorce called a divorce by publication. If you and your spouse are not in agreement or you do not know where they are located, then give our Sumiton and Jasper divorce lawyers a call today.

How Much Is a Contested Divorce in Jasper?
Aside from just uncontested divorces, our firm also handles contested divorces. This is a more involved type of divorce that is recommended when the two parties in a marriage cannot come to a mutual agreement so one spouse serves the other with a Complaint. The served spouse then find a lawyer to help them file a response. The hearings following this are set and a judge is brought in to help settle and decide the disputes between the two parties, should you two not be able to come to an agreement otherwise.
This type of divorce is more complicated and involved than a simple uncontested divorce so attorney fees will be higher. Our attorneys, like others in the industry, charge a retainer that is based on hourly work and the amount of work performed. How much you pay in the end depends on how quickly the marital issues in the divorce can be resolved. Because contested divorces tend to have a lot of back and forth, the attorney fees could get expensive.
The retainer for contested divorces can be thousands of dollars, but exactly how much it is depends on how complex the issues involved are and how contested they will probably get. Should there be children of the marriage involved, then the retainers will definitely be more than divorces without children, however there are still other factors we consider in quoting you a retainer. We invite you to call our Walker County office today to have us go over the details of your case which will then allow us to determine how much of a retainer we would require up front to start work on your case.
