There’s no doubt that going through a divorce can often have its challenges. Fortunately, when it comes to keeping the costs down, there are options.
The first premise to getting an affordable divorce is working out open-ended matters pertaining to the marriage with your spouse.
Before a divorce can be finalized, there may be a number of key matters that need to be resolved between the both of you. For example, if you have marital property, assets, or debt, you’ll want to discuss how this will be handled when moving forward 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 matters and your terms can become a part of your divorce proceeding. These terms are addressed in a document called a Settlement Agreement.
Now, if the both of you cannot agree on outstanding matters of the marriage, your divorce could potentially drag on with negotiations, mediator costs, rising legal fees, and a possibility of a showdown in court in an effort to resolve the issues at hand. Unfortunately, this process is often unavoidable and seeking the assistance of a qualified attorney may be the best option.
However, if you and your spouse can communicate and agree on the marital matters between the both of you, you can keep the costs down and move forward with your divorce. Believe it or not, thousands of people get affordable uncontested divorces each year and if you can work together - you‘re already well on your way.
Once the marital matters are worked out between the two of you, it is simply a matter of getting your divorce documents properly drafted at an affordable rate. Whether 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 ask if they offer a flat rate.
