Cost-Effective Divorce Solutions
Is a cheap divorce possible in Tennessee? You may initially save money by not hiring a qualified lawyer to oversee the process, but the cost of mistakes could come back to haunt you, making a “cheap divorce” an expensive prospect.
If you are seeking a cost-effective means of divorcing your spouse in Tennessee, uncontested divorce might be the best option for you. You must meet several requirements before getting an uncontested divorce. For example, you must agree with your spouse on all divorce-related issues, including property division, alimony and co-parenting.
At Zettersten & Hammond, we commit ourselves to helping our clients achieve their divorce goals while keeping costs as low as possible. We can guide you through all aspects of an uncontested, simplified divorce. If it turns out that uncontested divorce is not right for your situation, we can help you explore all of your options. We have law offices in Brentwood and Murfreesboro.
The Perils Of Do-It-Yourself Divorce
The Tennessee Courts website provides online divorce forms that you can download and fill out yourself. Remember, however, that mistakes in divorce paperwork can prove costly. If you’re attempting a do-it-yourself divorce, an error in your petition can cause problems that can never be fixed or wind up costing you more in the long run than if you had hired an attorney to handle your divorce from the beginning.
In uncontested divorces, many of our clients fill out the divorce paperwork themselves and then hire us to review it and make sure there are no mistakes or red flags. This allows our clients to save money on billable hours while still ensuring that they are protecting their rights and interests.
