At the Hughes Law office we offer a fast low cost uncontested divorce. With 19 years of experience in providing uncontested divorces to our clients we have developed methods and procedures to serve our clients in the most ethical and professional way possible.
What do we mean by low-cost? The Hughes Law office charges $495 for uncontested divorces without children and $995 for uncontested divorces with children. Some divorces are of course more complicated than usual. Recently I had a client with 13 properties, for example. In these cases I determine how much more extra work is involved and come up with a fair price.
It helps to compare the cost of an uncontested divorce with a contested divorce. This comes up especially in cases where one of the parties refuses to sign the final documents after agreeing to do so at the beginning. Clients must realize that the average cost of a a divorce without children in Georgia is about $15,000, and the costing cases with children is around $20,000. So unless there is a real dispute that cannot be resolved through mediation or any other means, it makes no sense to opt for a contested divorce. Bear in mind too that the pandemic has created a backlog of approximately one year in most Georgia courts, so that the earliest you would get a hearing is sometime next year.
We can say that one of the few benefits of the pandemic is that the entire process of getting an uncontested divorce has gone online. In other words, there are no final hearings. Clients need not show up in court on a date certain at a certain time. This is a nice bonus in that the client does not have to go through the stress of showing up in court and can get a divorce by electronic means – using the telephone, email, and regular mail if necessary.
