Our firm is dedicated to the concept of helping couples divorce with a minimum of conflict by resolving their differences as quickly as possible and filing for an uncontested divorce. This is by far the least costly way of securing a divorce. The normal legal fees that are incurred in a divorce can be thousands of dollars. For many couples this money would be better spent on moving on with their lives, and if there are children involved, using scarce funds for the children's welfare. Our fee is $ for an uncontested divorce without children - all the forms you need and legal advice is included. If you have children our fee is $ - all the forms you need and legal advice are included.

We also specialize in Qualified Domestic Relations Orders. (QDROS).  You will need one to divide a pension after a divorce. Our fee is $ and legal advice is included. We prepared all kinds of pension orders, including Federal Government Plans, Military Retirement System Orders (MRS), and Railroad Retirement System Orders (RRS).

There are situations where each party must be represented by counsel in a divorce. These situations include, among others: 1) when one party has been physically abusive to another; 2) when one party just won't cooperate; 3) when one party is hiding assets from another; 4) when it is difficult to value the assets owned by the parties; and other special circumstances where one party, usually the wife, needs the advocacy and protection of legal counsel.

We also offer estate planning services for a fixed and affordable fee all online for divorcing couples. Everyone getting divorced should have a new Will, Power of Attorney, and Living Will/Health Care Power of Attorney- the essential estate planning documents. We offer an estate planning package that includes a Last Will, Financial Power of Attorney, a Living Will, and a HIPPA Authorization for $99.00 with legal advice you have just received your divorce judgment you should revise your estate planning documents immediately. Our online process is easy to use and includes legal advice.

I had a Will, Power of Attorney, and Healthcare Directive drawn up by Mr. Granat and his staff using his website. They were all helpful, responsive, professional, and provided the documents in a timely fashion. They provided a service that was very cost effective to me.

Marital Separation Agreement, Quitclaim Deed and required Maryland Divorce documents
I am very pleased with the services provided by Mr. Granat and his staff. I became acquainted with his book, Divorce in Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia back in 1996 and purchased the book. Thereafter I purchased his then available product to produce a Marital Separation Agreement. Recently purchased a Quitclaim Deed and most recently the necessary Divorce documents to finalize my Separation and divorce. He and his staff have been fantastic, and have always answered my questions and met the needs of my personal situation. I have recommended his services to another friend who was unable to use Mr. Granat’s services, because, unlike my spouse who was willing to work out the Separation and divorce, my friend’s wife would not settle anything out of court. I was fortunate. If your situation fits mine, using his services can save you a lot of work, money, anxiety and frustration.
