No one goes into a divorce thinking it’ll be a cost-effective decision. However, what a lot of people don’t know is that there’s a low-cost option called an uncontested divorce that can save both money and time.
Every divorce case is different, and an uncontested divorce won’t work for everyone. It hinges on the fact that you and your spouse can reach an agreement about all of your marital issues including, but not limited to, division of assets, child custody, visitation and possibly alimony. For example, if your case is a high-end divorce that involves a lot of property division, stock splitting, and child custody, an uncontested divorce may not work. On the other hand, if you and your spouse can come to a mutual understanding, and let your Brunswick, GA divorce lawyers handle the paperwork, it doesn’t matter how many assets you hold. The key is to reach an agreement on all issues.
If you believe that you and your spouse can come to an understanding and proceed with an uncontested divorce, the price can be as low as a few hundred dollars plus court costs and other fees. This astounds some of my clients who expect that, at the bare minimum, a divorce will cost them thousands. But remember, if even one issue can’t be decided upon before the divorce has been filed, the process becomes a lot more expensive and time-consuming. I always advise my clients to really consider their options and being realistic about the agreements they can reach with their spouse.
