One of the biggest benefits of getting an uncontested divorce is avoiding the high costs that can come with a contested divorce.
After all, separation and divorce can be a stressful process, and adding additional paperwork, court and legal fees, and time and stress onto the process with a contested divorce can make the experience even more challenging.
So when considering an uncontested divorce, what is the average cost? The following are some of the average prices of uncontested divorces in Virginia.
Uncontested divorces in Virginia generally start at $899 plus court costs. This amount includes the filing and legal fees with our firm, so the cost is inclusive.
The legal process is relatively straightforward with uncontested divorces, especially compared to contested divorces. The uncontested divorce process in Virginia requires ensuring all paperwork is properly prepared, signed by both parties, and filed with the court to be approved by a judge.
Our experienced legal team will help you ensure your documents are error-free to prevent delays in the process and minimize filing fees.
There are additional legal costs you may incur with your uncontested divorce in Virginia.
For example, if you and your spouse agree on child support or alimony (spousal support) as part of the uncontested divorce, this may add additional fees, as the final agreement and paperwork will be more substantial than an uncontested divorce that does not include these terms.
We will let you know what to expect based on what terms your divorce includes when you work with us so you can properly budget for the costs of your divorce.
The uncontested divorce process is the fastest way to secure a divorce in Virginia.
