Skilled, compassionate, and experienced family law attorney in Grand Rapids handling all matters related to divorce.
Because I understand how difficult divorce can be, I will be there to guide you through the entire process, and assist you to make well-informed decisions. It is my intent to settle your case without the need for delayed and expensive litigation. However, I will provide aggressive representation if a settlement cannot be reached. And throughout this process, I will always provide you with personalized, quality, and affordable representation.
We understand that clients are concerned with the cost of legal fees associated with divorce. In order to alleviate your concerns, we now offer a flat rate fee for uncontested divorces. An uncontested divorce is one in which the parties have resolved all of the issues, and there is no need for court intervention.
The flat rate for an uncontested divorce is $1,500.00 and includes the following:
1. Preparation of the initial documents necessary to file the divorce action.
2. Preparation of the Consent Judgment of Divorce and Uniform Child Support Order.
3. Communication with the client to prepare documents.
4. Attendance at the final hearing.
In the event that the divorce becomes contested, then the case would proceed as a contested divorce, and our standard hourly fee would go into effect.
Whether you live in Grand Rapids, Kent County, or surrounding West Michigan communities, I invite you to discuss your divorce or other family law matter with me.
