Cost of Uncontested Divorce

How much does an uncontested divorce cost? And is it an issue that the spouse lives in a different state?
- RK , Florida


Thanks so much for reaching out to our firm.

The legal fees for an uncontested divorce are typically flat fees and can vary. It depends on whether there are children involved in the divorce, whether there might be a business involved, and really is based on how much work is involved in each individual case. The first step is always to set a consultation with our office so we can evaluate your goals and family and then we can quote a fee to handle it.

In regards to your spouse living out of State you can file in Florida as long as you have been a resident for the previous six months prior to filing. However, please keep in mind that in an uncontested divorce the parties need to agree on every issue in the case including where to file.

If you would like to schedule a meeting to discuss this further please call my office to set a time for us to meet. I think it is wise to pursue an uncontested divorce if you are able to because it is a way to avoid a costly and highly emotional contested divorce. It is always the best solution for any family.

I look forward to meeting you.

Very truly yours,

Jeremy Buckmaster
