Affordable Divorce: What You Need To Know
When it comes to divorce, we often want to get the process over with as quickly as possible. Although your marriage is coming to an end, there may however, be a few key matters that need to be resolved between the two of you prior to getting a divorce.
For example, if the both of you have marital property, assets, or debt, you may need to discuss how this will be handled when moving ahead with a divorce.
Similarly, if there are minor children of the marriage, matters such as custody, visitation, and child support will also need to be discussed.
In an uncontested divorce, the both of you can work out an arrangement in regards to these issues, and the arrangement can become a part of the terms of your divorce. These terms are addressed in a document called a marital Settlement Agreement.
When it comes to keeping the costs down in a divorce, there are generally two basic premises:
1) working out any open-ended matters pertaining to the marriage with your spouse, and;
2) getting your uncontested divorce documents properly prepared at an affordable rate.
Now, if the two of you cannot agree on outstanding matters of the marriage (such as property, assets, debt, or issues pertaining to any marital children), your divorce can potentially drag on with rising mediator and lawyer fees, with a possibility of a showdown in court in an effort to resolve the issues at hand. Unfortunately, there are many cases where spouses cannot agree on marriage-related matters, and the process can take an emotional toll on everyone involved.
However, if you and your spouse can get together to discuss and resolve the marital matters between the both of you - you can keep the costs down and your divorce can move forward. Believe it or not, thousands of people get low-cost divorces each year and if you can both communicate and work together - you‘re already well on your way to keeping things moving ahead.
Once the marital matters are worked out between the two of you, it is simply a matter of getting your divorce documents properly prepared at an affordable rate. Whether you’re using a reputable attorney or paralegal service to have your documents drafted, always inquire upfront as to the costs of getting your documents prepared and if they offer a flat fee.
