Cheap Divorce: It Can Happen For You

Aug 16, 2008
Cheap Divorce can be a tricky affair, so here are a few tips to help you through.

Divorce lawyers are the obvious option when instigating divorce proceedings. It's always best to seek qualified legal counsel, but it's not wholly necessary for the entire process.

The Yellow Pages, and the Internet are great for finding cheap divorce lawyers, but a lot of people are happy relying on word of mouth. It sounds a little old fashioned, but it still works, however dated.

Always go for a lawyer qualified in your area of law, and make sure they are registered to practice in your state. If word of mouth is not your thing, then you can always find one via the State Bar Association.

There is a ton of information online regarding cheap divorce and the more traditional and expensive version. It is quite straight forward to get a low cost divorce if both parties are in agreement, and there are no kids or other complicated areas.

Knowing what you are doing and the process itself, can cut your costs hugely, and those of your partner, although it is always best for both parties to have separate lawyers. But if you can agree on as much as possible before the lawyers are involved, it can save you thousands, literally!

Online services can help here, as the divorce is little more than a formality, and as long as all the forms are completed correctly, there should be little difficulty on finalizing your cheap divorce.

These kinds of divorces are also known as "no fault" divorces, and are very straight forward provided both parties are in agreement to walk away from the marriage amicably.

Cheap Divorces are not possible for couples with a lot to sort through, and particularly those with kids and property issues. There are several methods for minimizing the cost and maximizing what you take with you, but some of those are a little devious and not really suitable here.

To finish, here are a few simple tips for you.

If you can part agreeably, and sort as much out as you possibly can without calling a lawyer first; you will save thousands in fees: this applies to any sort of divorce.

If you have kids and absolutely don't get on with each other, then it's pretty much inevitable that it's going to be a costly and lengthy process. Plus it will inevitably get nasty. But again you can save quite a bit of cash, by solving as many issues as possible before you call a lawyer/referee.

Draw up a list of what you have agreed on, and what you both want out of the settlement, and give it to your respective lawyers once you have pored over it, and made a few decisions on who gets what.

Lastly: remember, lawyers charge for phone calls, note taking, typing, and talking. Remove as much of this as you can, and you will save money!
