CONSIDERING A DIVORCE IN ALABAMA?

If you are divorcing in the state of Alabama and your divorce is truly uncontested (when you and your spouse agree on all your issues), then you have filing options to consider. The first thing most people assume when they decide to divorce is that they must hire a lawyer. This is not the case and is often not the norm especially when both parties are amicable and both are willing to sign the divorce papers. Doing your own divorce without a lawyer is very popular in Alabama because of the time and money it can save. Be sure to examine your situation and explore your options and understand that if you and your spouse are arguing, hiring a lawyer is probably your best option.

Advantages of Doing Your Own Divorce in Alabama

When filing for divorce in Alabama, you have a constitutional right to file Pro Se. Filing a Pro Se divorce in Alabama means that you are representing yourself, without a lawyer. Whether or not you file for your own divorce, you are required to follow the same legal procedures a lawyer does. The big difference is, you are preparing and filing the paperwork yourself. 3StepDivorceTM helps make it easy for you to prepare your own divorce papers, which is the hardest part of doing your own divorce. Once you have your papers ready and signed, it is just a matter of taking them to the county courthouse and filing them with the Clerk. Once they are filed, they are reviewed by a Judge and he or she signs the final judgment or decree which finalizes your divorce.

1. Cost. The filing fees in Alabama to file for an uncontested divorce are $150 to $300, depending on the county in which you are filing. Attorney’s fees on average, hourly, are $250- $300, which could easily cost you $2,500 to $3,000 to hire an attorney to handle your uncontested divorce. Filing Pro Se in Alabama is far more cost effective as long as you are willing to do a bit of the work. With 3StepDivorceTM and your court filing fees, you are looking at a total cost of about $500- $600 to get it done.

2. Control. You prepare the paperwork and sign a marital settlement agreement (MSA) stating that all issues raised in the Divorce Complaint are resolved. There is no need to serve your spouse the divorce papers because you are allowed to personally serve or mail the documents for your spouse to sign on your own timeline. You eliminate lawyer office visits and you are the one negotiating and reaching a settlement as to what you and your spouse believe is fair.

3. Ease. Other than preparing the paperwork and filing them with the Clerk you just need to be aware that their is a 30-day waiting period before the divorce can be final. Often there would not be a need to appear in court, but this is always up to the Judge. Also, after the divorce is final, there is a mandatory 60-day waiting period before you can remarry.

Deciding to Hire a Lawyer for Your Divorce in Alabama

Selecting a lawyer can be difficult for those who have no experience. Some turn to family or friends for a recommendation based on their experiences, which is probably the first and best option for most. Word of mouth works for some who turn to an experienced divorce practitioner with a proven track record. Make sure it is someone you feel comfortable working with. You could end up spending quite a bit of time together, especially if your case is contested. He or she will be negotiating your divorce settlement and keeping you in the know regarding your legal rights and obligations.

The Alabama State Bar also has a lawyer a referral service (http://www.alabar.org). The office is located at at 415 Dexter Avenue Montgomery, Alabama 36104 Phone: 334-269-1515. The state bar has about 15,700 members.
