Making the choice to end your marriage is never easy or simple. If you and your spouse can remain civil and agree with one another about the division of liabilities and assets, spousal support, child support and other issues, the divorce process can be much more simple and less stressful. This process is known as an uncontested divorce. While an uncontested divorce can be difficult to accomplish in many instances, the benefits can be enormous in the long run.
The process of uncontested divorce offers the parties the opportunity to end their marriage with dignity and without all the drawn out squabbling that divorces can often bring about. The most obvious advantage of an uncontested divorce is the cost but that shouldn’t be viewed as the only advantage. It can often be a means of keeping the peace between the divorcing parties so that your amicable divorce remains that way. It is also very much more private and cooperative. It is also less likely to result in substantial costs beyond the normal attorneys fees and court costs.
If you have reached the point where you and your spouse feel that your marriage is beyond repair, give the attorneys at Harmon and Gorove a call and set up free consultation where we can discuss your situation in a private and comfortable environment.
Our office handles all types of uncontested divorces. Before calling our office for an appointment to begin an uncontested divorce, please ensure that both of you actually agree on the main issues concerning property division. Keep in mind that both of you must be willing to sign all necessary paperwork.
We charge a flat fee for uncontested divorces and offer a free initial consultation. The attorney fees start at $800 for divorces without minor children. All divorces with minor children start at $1200.
All fees are plus court costs and other court imposed fees which usually run in the neighborhood of around $300. We require a down payment of 50% of the total amount to begin the process. This down payment is non-refundable. The remaining balance is due within 30 days, unless a payment plan is worked out.
