A divorce is the “cherry on top of the cake”. A judge will not likely grant a divorce until they know all other issues have been finalized. For example, if child support is not being paid, a judge will want an explanation as to why. If support should be paid, a judge may not grant the divorce until all parties have a Separation Agreement and/or Court Order on that issue.
For a simple divorce (ie: you already have a Separation Agreement or Court Order in place), I charge a flat fee. If you do not have a Separation Agreement or Court Order in place, my fee may vary depending on what issues need to be finalized and the process which you choose to finalize them (ie: collaborative law vs. traditional court litigation).
