How Much Does a New York Uncontested Divorce Cost?
Experienced Long Island attorneys provide low-cost options
Technically, any divorce that settles before a court hearing is an uncontested divorce. But as any experienced attorney knows, uncontested doesn’t always mean there are no disagreements. Some couples have a desire to settle, but the complexities of their lives, their property holdings and their parenting plans require a great deal of massaging before they can achieve a workable settlement. Other couples come into our office with a plan that’s virtually air-tight. They just need our help to finalize the language of the agreement and bring up legal issues they hadn’t anticipated. At Bryan L. Salamone & Associates, P.C., we tailor our services to your needs. We don’t do more than you need simply to pad our bills, and we don’t do less than is necessary to deliver optimum results. We offer low, flat-rate divorce packages that may be appropriate for your circumstances. But if you need some extra work done, we have very reasonable retainers and hourly rates.
Our lowest price for uncontested divorce: $1000 plus filing fees
If you’re truly a candidate for a simple divorce, we can save you time, money and frustration. If you and your spouse have worked out your issues and you’re ready to go, we draft your marital settlement agreement in the proper language and form to gain easy court approval. The total cost of $1,400 covers:
- $1,500 attorney fees
- $400 filing fees and other court costs
This package is ideal for couples with no children and/or limited assets, who want to be secure in their divorce settlement. You may have heard that, in this age of downloading anything and everything from the internet, do-it-yourself options exist. But DIY forms don’t come with legal advice and provide easy opportunities to make beginner’s mistakes that cost you thousands of dollars over time. Our low fees ensure that you have an experienced attorney troubleshooting your proposed settlement to identify any problem areas you and your spouse may have missed and making appropriate corrections.
Competitive standard fees for not-so-simple uncontested divorce
For couples who require a little more work to get to an uncontested divorce, Salamone & Associates provides excellent legal service at very reasonable rates. This includes retainers starting at $2,000 and an hourly rate of $325. These rates are very competitive with other Long Island law firms offering divorce services, but we have the advantage over most in being exclusively devoted to divorce and family law.
