HOW MUCH DOES DIVORCE COST?
CAN YOU MAKE PAYMENTS?
HOW DOES AGREED DIVORCE WORK ?
HOW MUCH ARE WILLS AND POWERS OF ATTORNEY?
WILL WE PRICE MATCH?
An Agreed Divorce and an Uncontested Divorce and an Irreconcilable Differences Divorce are all the same: You both agree to sign the Divorce Documents which state all of your agreements. Agreed Divorce made easy is all we do.
HOW MUCH ARE THE ATTORNEY'S FEES?
1) The TOTAL Legal Fees For Agreed Divorce WITHOUT minor aged children are $600.00 for all of it. Your Court costs are additional.
After your free initial consultation and after you fill out our Agreed Divorce Clinic™ Questionnaire and the Agreed Parenting Plan. We will use that information, including your agreements for division of your property and debts, if any, the children's residential schedule and child support, to prepare all of your Legal Documents for your signatures. You can pay it all at once or you can pay a $400 down payment which will get you started and will get all of your documents ready for signing. After you both sign the documents, whenever you pay the balance, we will file them for you with the Clerk of the Court and in about 100 to 105 days from that date you will receive a certified copy of the Final Divorce Decree signed by the Judge and entered by the Family Court Clerk.
3. PAYMENT PLANS. After you pay your deposit and even after you sign all of your legal documents, we NEVER ASK YOU FOR MONEY. We know you want the divorce and, because we only file the documents with the court after you have paid in full, we know you will pay your balance as soon as you can, so you can then get the statute requirement of 60 days or 90 days waiting period to start counting down, after filing with the Court Clerk. Choose your own payment plan!
***If you do have minor children, in addition, there is a court ordered Parenting Class that state law requires you to attend and the cost is around $35 to $40 per parent, give or take depending on where you actually attend. Also, if you own a home there will most likely be a $100 charge for a Quit Claim Deed in favor of the spouse keeping the marital residence. We will need a copy of your recorded prior deed to do one for you.

POWERS OF ATTORNEY:
A Power of Attorney is a legal document which appoints an individual, known as an "Attorney-in-Fact", to handle the all of your affairs in the event you are unavailable or unable to handle your own financial and other affairs or healthcare decisions prior to death. A separate Power Of Attorney is required for healthcare, by Tennessee Statutes.
A Will is a legal declaration by which you names one or more individuals to manage your estate, including all real and personal property and debts and provide for the transfer of property and payment of debts after death.
A Living Will is a document which prevents a hospital from keeping you artificially alive on machines once your Agent under your Power Of Attorney For Healthcare is informed by your doctors that your life is no longer viable.
