Since Artinger Law only takes a couple clients at a time your divorce will remain a top priority for Artinger Law and could be complete in as little as two weeks.
- What if your spouse refuses to sign the papers? Unfortunately, if your spouse will not sign the documents Artinger Law prepares your divorce isn't an uncontested divorce and you will have to find another attorney to represent you in a contested divorce proceeding. Artinger Law is a limited service document drafting firm that is unable to represent clients at formal divorce proceedings. However, your spouse is free to review the documents with another attorney and Artinger Law will make one revision to the prepared documents before it considers the divorce to be contested.
- Will I need to go to Court for an uncontested Divorce? Usually no. There are some rare instances where a Court will require the parties to appear if he or she is uncomfortable with some of the provisions. The vast majority of uncontested divorces do not require a court appearance by either party.
- How much does it cost? Artinger Law prepares its uncontested divorce services at a flat-rate fee of $1,000.00 plus costs of court. This fee includes all of the document drafting, court appearances, and client correspondence necessary to complete the divorce. It does not include some anxcillary services like quitclaim deed preparations, drafting Qualified Domestic Relations Orders, or other documents. Artinger Law can provide these services, but they are not included in the flat-rate fee.
