755 - How Much Will Uncontested Divorce Cost?

The cost of the legal services for an uncontested divorce will vary widely, depending on what lawyer you use to get it done. I've seen uncontested divorces advertised for as little as 189 dollars, and I've heard prices of 1,000 dollars and up. The lower prices are usually quoted for divorces where no children are involved, and they usually don’t include the cost of preparing an agreement, which is needed in nearly every divorce.

I have flat rates for simple uncontested divorces, which always include the cost of preparing the agreement and all other forms needed for the divorce. My charge for a simple uncontested divorce is 200 dollars when there are no minor children, 250 dollars if you have young children. You also need to pay a filing fee. That's running 170 dollars in Talladega County where I file my uncontested divorces, and it varies from 150 to 200 dollars in other counties.

All my flat rates for uncontested divorce assume an initial session of an hour or less in which we prepare the papers and that you and your spouse sign the papers in the form we prepare them.

If it takes more time than that, or if you have to make changes to the papers after we prepare them, that's okay. I just ask you to pay me for the extra time. So if it takes an extra 10 minutes, that's an extra 40 dollars I'd ask you to pay me.

If you opt for a simple uncontested divorce, I ask you to pay me the legal fee when you come for the first session. I prefer that you wait and pay me the filing fee when you and your spouse have signed the papers and you’re actually ready to file them with the court.

I take cash, checks, Visa and Mastercard.
