Family Lawyers $150.00
You don't need to pay a lawyer $3,000+ to prepare or file your divorce if it's simple and uncontested. I am *NOT a lawyer. I can NOT give legal advice. However, I have divorced dozens of couples successfully for a fraction of the retainer fee for a lawyer, and much faster than a lawyer can accomplish this.
The court charges $273 filing fee, or $150 to modify your Judgment in addition to my document preparation fee.
Remember your first time filing taxes? Well, double the amount of pages and baffling instructions. Don't waste your time searching the Oregon courts website for forms scattered throughout the state website.
It's much simpler to hire a seasoned professional to help you fill in the 50+ pages of documents.
Document preparation starts at $350 for the complete uncontested divorce with no children/no property. $450 for divorces with children.
For unagreed Petitioner/Respondent cases, add $125 to the above prices (& server costs, and 30 day wait)
Ask me for a great referral if you have complex issues such as custody, family business, spousal support, prenup or other issues.
I prepare documents in approx. 2 weeks once you complete your simple questionnaire.
Oregon parents must attend a fee-based parent education CLASS before a Judge will finalize your divorce.
