Lexington Uncontested Divorce Initial Consultation

Lexington Uncontested Divorce Initial Consultation

At the Law Office of James R. Snell, Jr., LLC, we assist many people with obtaining uncontested divorces. People pursue this option for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Speed – The entire process may only take 4-6 weeks, which is quicker than the several years it may take to obtain a divorce in a contested proceeding.
  • Cost – A contested divorce can cost you ten thousand dollars or more, uncontested may be less than $1,000. The total cost is not just the initial "retainer" charged by a lawyer, but also the lawyer's monthly bills, court filing fees, guardian ad litem costs, mediator fees, depositions, court reporters, process servers, witness appearance fees, psychological testing, forensic accountants, etc.
  • Less Dramatic - When your case is initiated as uncontested, you or your spouse don't have to make disparaging remarks about each other in public court filings, or put your children or other family through the stress of a contested case.

The first step in seeing if you qualify for an uncontested divorce is to schedule an initial consultation with our office. When you do you will meet with a lawyer in a confidential and private setting who will review with your circumstances, including:

  • Child custody
  • Child visitation
  • Child support
  • How to determine what the marital assets are
  • Alimony \ Spousal Support
  • Distribution of Assets
  • Distribution of Debts
  • Dividing retirement or pension accounts

If your case can be fairly settled to you and any children, taking into account all of the necessary terms, then an uncontested divorce may be the best option for you.

If at the initial consultation we determine that an uncontested divorce filing is appropriate we will set a fixed flat fee for your entire case, which usually can be paid up front with no other charges from our office or the Court. We might even be able to prepare and file your case the same day.
