Even if your divorce seems simple and straightforward, it’s best to have an attorney helping you through the process to make sure everything is done correctly. When you call our office to set up the initial consultation, our staff will determine whether you are eligible for our reduced consultation fee of $175 for low cost divorces. During your initial consultation, the consulting attorney will further discuss the details of your case and, if the attorney determines that your case qualifies as a low cost divorce, you will be entitled to a reduced hourly rate of $225. Each case is different and the determination of whether a case qualifies as a low cost divorce will be decided on a case by case basis. However, below are some general guidelines as to what would qualify as a low cost divorce. In select cases, when there are no disputed issues, we may agree to take your case for a flat fee as opposed to an hourly rate. If you believe your case may qualify as a low cost divorce, please mention it to our staff when you call to schedule a consultation.
If your case meets all of the following criteria, you may qualify for a low cost divorce. This list is not exclusive and other complicating factors may preclude you from qualifying.
