The Need For Estimated Fees

Divorce rates have been causing many people to even declare bankruptcy, which has long lasting and far reaching effects on your future. If you goal is to keep your fees down and avoid a costly battle, an uncontested divorce might be the right option for you.
In an uncontested, agreed divorce, the attorneys don’t do the negotiating. Basically the couple comes to terms with how they want to handle their assets, debts, children and support. One of the parties then hires the attorney to “paper” up the case. Basically, the attorney just ensures the documents properly reflect the agreement and that the procedures for the divorce are followed.
If the attorney has to negotiate or otherwise “argue” the case, in a court or a mediation setting, then the case is no longer uncontested and the flat fee will be converted to a retainer or flat fee payment for services already provided.
