Some of the most frequent questions we hear relate to an Uncontested Divorce. The questions are typically:
– How long will this take?
– How much will this cost?
– Do I need an attorney?
The answers to these questions depend upon several factors. The most important factor is whether both spouses can agree on all material terms of the divorce. When there is a complete agreement, uncontested divorces can be completed in as little as sixty days. However, it is safe to add a few days for completion of initial documents.
At the Tadlock Law Office, an uncontested divorce is typically completed based upon a flat fee since negotiations are not needed. The cost of such a divorce, therefore, begins at $1,250.00.
Many people believe that an uncontested divorce is a simple matter. As a result, there can be a temptation to use online family law forms.
