How much would it cost to have a lawyer prepare and file only the court paperwork for an uncontested divorce?

Asked about 2 years ago - Culpeper, VA

My spouse and I have signed and completed PSA. No kids, no home, small assets, 3 year marriage. We managed to get this far in the process with minimal help, but I think it would be helpful to have a professional prepare the court documents and file them with the court. Would it cost much to have a lawyer finish our divorce for us?

    Answered . Some attorneys do it flat fee and some do it hourly - I would suggest contacting family law attorneys in your area. I think it is important to have legal help in the process because there are a lot of potential pitfalls if you don't know exactly what to do.
