Divorce hurts, but it doesn't have to be nasty. It also doesn't have to be expensive. Although it is true that contested divorce actions can become costly for both parties involved, there are certain steps that may be taken to lower the costs of Georgia divorce. One of those steps or alternatives is uncontested divorce. An uncontested divorce can generally be defined as a divorce where both parties have come to a complete agreement concerning all of the four major issues of divorce: child custody, child support, alimony and equitable division of marital assets, properties and debts. For uncontested divorces, Meriwether & Tharp provides 3 low-cost options.
The primary way uncontested divorce helps lower the costs associated with divorce in Georgia is that it streamlines the process. Contested divorce actions may take months or even years to conclude, while uncontested divorce actions generally take between 30 and 60 days to conclude. Because uncontested divorce actions are often resolved in such a short time period, the legal fees associated with uncontested divorce are reduced. Unfortunately, many lawyers only offer traditional representation with uncontested divorces. This means they will collect a large initial payment up front. After that, they will bill you at a standard rate for every hour worked on the case. This causes even simple uncontested divorces to be much more expensive.
At Meriwether & Tharp, we believe there is a better way. We offer three online uncontested divorce options at varying price points (see the comparison chart below). We keep our uncontested divorce packages affordable by eliminating the need for attorneys to bill hours on your case. No longer will you have to worry about getting an unexpected bill for massive legal fees at the end of the month. With our predictable pricing, all you pay is a flat fee and a filing fee to the county Superior Court that you file in.
