Affordable Uncontested Divorce
Divorce can be stressful but it doesn’t have to be expensive. If your and your spouse can agree on all terms for your divorce, e.q. division of property and debt, and custody, visitation and child support, you can file an uncontested divorce. We can draft your documents and appear in court for you for a reasonable rate. Usually within 45 days of the filing of the divorce.
Don’t trust your divorce to paralegals, on-line forms and generic document generation companies. Even with uncontested divorces there may be unique issues pertaining to your divorce. Also, if your documents are not done correctly your divorce will be delayed. We are a law providing professional legal services at affordable rates. Call us today free a free consultation.
