An uncontested divorce occurs when both parties have worked out the all the issues involved, i.e. property division, child custody, etc., and there is no need to go to court. Uncontested divorces are a great way to keep divorce expenses at a minimum. I know divorce attorneys who charge anywhere from $100 to $1200 for an uncontested divorce, plus filing fees. I charge a flat $450 fee for an uncontested divorce, $500 if children are involved, plus filing fees. It is possible to find divorce attorney's who charge cheaper rates for an uncontested divorce. However, the time they put into your case will suffer dramatically. My office will spend as much time as needed to get your Alabama uncontested divorce right and to make sure you are satisfied with the process. I am available 24/7 to my clients, and I always return your calls within a couple hours. I do not charge for phone calls and I do not charge excess fees for any extra time your case may take. Pay close attention to these attorneys who advertise $200 dollar uncontested divorce fees, their practice may not focus on Alabama divorce and family law, they will almost assuredly take less time to make you comfortable with the process and answer all your questions, and you could end up paying more in the long run. Almost without fail, these $200 dollar uncontested divorce lawyers are only charging you for one hour of work. That means, if your case cannot be handled within a one hour office visit, you get charged more. My office does not work this way. When we say $450 for an uncontested divorce, we mean just that, no matter the extra time we take to answer your questions and fully explain the process.
