Cost of Divorce in Alabama

The cost of an Alabama divorce varies on a case-by-case basis. This is due to several factors that impact the total cost of an Alabama divorce. The factors that affect the cost of a divorce in Alabama include, but are not limited to, court fees, attorney fees, document preparation fees, trial fees, and other expenses related to settlement of a case such as mediation. For these reasons you should look at the total divorce cost as a combination of all professional fees and costs.

The most predictable cost in any divorce is the court fee. The court fee in Alabama varies by county but usually ranges from $200 to $300. The court fee is mandatory unless you qualify for a waiver. We provide the fee waiver application upon request or when we see it may be appropriate. The court fee is paid to the court at the time of submitting your paperwork to the court.

How can I save money on my Alabama divorce?

The first way to save on your divorce in Alabama is by reaching an agreement with your spouse. By reaching an agreement you do not have to pay attorneys to litigate the issues of your divorce or attend mediation. By not overpaying for attorney and other professional services, and the related fees, you can control the cost of your divorce. Keep in mind that most all divorce cases end by agreement eventually, even if you spend thousands preparing for a court battle. In such cases you spend all your money paying an attorney to negotiate, usually with your spouse’s attorney.

A second way to save is to use Alabama Divorce Online. Once you have your agreement, you answer questions online and then you and your spouse review the paperwork online that reflects your agreements. You and your spouse then may sign and notarize the paperwork online. You can then have us file E-file your case for you and in about 30 days you are divorced. No court visits, no office visits, no driving around looking for notaries. And best of all, you paid a lawyer-free price for our online attorney service.

What is an agreed divorce?

An agreed (or uncontested) divorce is where you and your spouse reach an agreement on the issues of your divorce before you file. The divorce settlement agreement covers how you will divide your marital property and debts and if you have children explains how you will handle child support, custody and visitation. By reaching an agreement, you can save thousands of dollars on your divorce.
