Not all divorces need to end in a dramatic mess, and the uncontested divorce is the way most people choose to dissolve their marriage.
It’s simple, inexpensive, it offers you and your spouse the chance to end your marriage quietly and with dignity, and it tends to eliminate the toxic effect that divorce has on children.
It’s not right for everybody, but it’s right for many more Massachusetts couples than most family law attorneys would like to admit. At Law Group, P.C., our attorneys advise couples to consider out flat uncontested divorce services whenever appropriate.
Here’s how it works: If you and your spouse can agree that there has been an irretrievable breakdown of the marriage, and the two of you can agree on the terms and conditions related to how you’ll separate, than you can proceed on an uncontested basis and file a joint petition for divorce.
This is by far the easiest and least expensive way to obtain a divorce.
But low cost, by itself, isn’t the only advantage of uncontested divorces. If the level of contentiousness between the two of you is low now, uncontested divorce offers a way to keep it that way. It’s also private. The agreement the two of you reach in an uncontested divorce and file with the court will of course be a matter of public record, but the disclosures you make to each other don’t have to be.
Massachusetts Uncontested Divorce Attorneys
If you’re like most people going through a divorce, you’re exhausted. You want somebody else to take charge and take care of you.
That’s what we do when it comes to our flat-fee, uncontested divorce services. We offer one price – referred to as a flat fee – depending on the issues in the case.
For cases where the parties do not have children or property, we charge a flat rate of $1,750 for a one month turnaround. If you have children, own real estate, need to calculate child support or alimony, or absolutely need us to work much faster than a month, we can still help with our menu of additional services.
Other than court costs, you won’t pay anything else. Your rate includes all meetings, phone calls, e-mails, correspondence, drafting, court appearances and negotiation. Our clients appreciate the predictability of one “package” rate.
What We Do
We take the fear, dread, and mystery out of divorce. One thing that people fear about divorce and attorneys is the cost. When it comes to uncontested divorce, alleviate some of your fears by telling us what you need, and we’ll tell you (in advance) what it will cost.
What We Cannot Do
If you insist on having us represent both you and your spouse – we won’t do it! It’s not that we choose not to, but ethically we are not permitted to.
Our Massachusetts flat-fee divorce attorneys will work with you in order to keep your costs as low as possible. All major credit cards accepted. Payment of all fees and costs must be made in full before we begin working on your case. To learn more about our menu of services and fee structure, please visit .
Once you decide it’s worthwhile taking the route of a simple, easier way to divorce, we’ll send you a copy of your “homework assignment.” It’s a step-by-step guide that we’ve developed for our clients to use. It helps explain what your options are and gives you a simple checkbox and fill-in-the-blanks format to work through.
We work to assure that assets and debts are fairly divided according to the law. We’ll make sure that any support is also set fairly based on the law and the facts, and most importantly, we’ll make sure your relationship with your children is preserved.
Our attorneys and staff draft all the necessary pleadings and edit your financial statement. Once everything is in order, we conduct a final review and approve the documents for filing. If we’re representing you, we file everything, schedule your court date and let you know when and where to appear. One of our attorneys represents you on the day that you get divorced.
Most cases take 10 minutes or less in court. That’s it.
