Getting Started With Your Uncontested Divorce in Three Easy Steps:
Before getting started with your Georgia uncontested divorce, it is probably a good idea to understand what an uncontested divorce is and the differences between a contested divorce and an uncontested divorce. Once you have done that, just follow the steps listed below.
- Submit our online Client Inquiry Form.
- Schedule your meeting with attorney Robert L. Jones by just clicking "Schedule an Appointment" below.
- Prepare for your meeting with the attorney.
If you and your spouse do not have any minor children together, we typically start your uncontested divorce case with a telephone conference. The telephone conference to start your case typically takes about 45 minutes but we usually schedule a full 90 minutes so that we have plenty of time to go over all of the issues in your case without being rushed. Make sure that you provide the telephone number that you want us to call to start the meeting. We usually have just one telephone conference with our client throughout the uncontested divorce but we can schedule a second one if necessary.
However, if you have minor children together (under age 18) we find that is it usually best to have an in-person conference with you at our office so that we can easily review your information and documents needed to start your case. But, we recognize that it may not be convenient for you to actually come in to the office so, if you prefer, we can have the conference by telephone instead. Whether in-person or by telephone, That usually lasts about 90 minutes but we schedule a full 2 hours to make sure that nothing is overlooked. We have a detailed discussion with you as we collect everything that we need to start your divorce case. You will need to bring documentation of your and your spouse's gross (pre-tax) income if you have it.
Whether you and your spouse have minor children together, getting started with your uncontested divorce case is done in the very same way -- you just fill out and submit our online Client Inquiry Form. That usually takes just a few minutes (a little more if you have children) and your information is submitted to us in confidence. By submitting the Client Inquiry Form prior to the meeting to start your case, you will save a lot of time during the actual meeting.
Next, you need to contact our office to set up the meeting and start the case-- again, this will be a telephone meeting only.
To schedule either type of meeting, simply click below and you can conveniently schedule the meeting using our online appointment system by selecting Step Two - Schedule an Appointment button below.
Paying Our Fee:
Our fee for your uncontested divorce can be paid over the phone using any major credit/debit card. You do not need to pay our fee until we actually start on your case by having the telephone conference or an in-person conference. You will receive a receipt by email when you make the payment to start your case. We accept all major credit/debit cards.
Finally, prepare for your meeting with us. You can do that best by having all of the information about bank accounts, retirement accounts, debts, real estate and other property at your fingertips. If you have minor children together, you will need to also have documentation of your monthly gross (pre-tax) income, your spouse's gross income and the monthly cost for health insurance (not including vision or dental) and childcare for your minor child(ren) only. You should have all of this information and anything else that you believe may be important for the attorney to know about available to you at the meeting.
Sometimes, taking the first step in getting started with a divorce is difficult. But, we try to make it less burdensome for you from the very beginning. Of course, we always welcome suggestions on how to make it easier for you. At the meeting to start your uncontested divorce, you will be speaking with an expert in divorce in Georgia so we want you to ask whatever detailed questions you have during the meeting.
The cost of divorce in Georgia does not have to be expensive. We strive to provide every client with a fast, affordable Georgia uncontested divorce.
