Frequently Asked Questions

A divorce is uncontested if both parties agree to all issues of custody, parenting time, property division, debt, and support. The vast majority of divorces in the United States resolve by agreement. In fact, most divorcing couples never see the inside of a courtroom.

 

An uncontested divorce requires the filing of a Petition for Dissolution, a financial disclosure, and a settlement agreement. The settlement agreement is the document that sets forth the parties' agreement on all issues. At the conclusion of the divorce, the settlement agreement becomes an enforceable court order.

Our fee is $497 and you will also be responsible for your county’s filing fee. We charge only $497 to advise you and draft all of the necessary documents. This fee includes an attorney consultation, if you so desire.

 

You will only be charged more if you request additional services, or if the court requires a hearing in your case. Additional services include the drafting of deeds, qualified orders, or an update to your will.

Each county has a fee for filing your divorce. The fee is ordinarily between $203 and $332. You will pay this fee to us and we will pay the court clerk at the time of hiring us.

Once you complete our intake process, our attorneys draft your documents within a few business days. We will file your divorce immediately after you and your spouse sign the pleadings and settlement. If there are no minor children, the court will ordinarily sign your divorce decree within a couple weeks.


If you have minor children, Kentucky law requires the courts to wait 60 days before signing a divorce decree. We will submit your decree for signature at the expiration of 60 days. Once submitted, the court will ordinarily sign the decree within 7-10 days.

 

Indiana law requires you to wait 60 days after we file all of the documents before requesting your divorce decree. We will submit your decree for signature at the expiration of the 60 days.

The court does not ordinarily require the parties to attend a hearing. However, the court’s roll in an uncontested divorce is to review your settlement agreement and find that it is not unconscionable. This loosely means that the court reviews the agreement to ensure it is fair. If the court has questions about your agreement or the fairness of the agreement, the court will schedule a hearing. Your attorney will be able to advise you about the fairness of the agreement and the likelihood of the court requiring an appearance.

 

Once your attorney drafts all of the required documents, you will be able to sign your documents remotely, via Zoom or similar, before a Notary public. You may also choose to sign before any notary – your bank, your office, or a nearby office supply store. To locate a notary near you, click here.

 

All statutorily required testimony can be taken by affidavit, which we will prepare for you. Once all of the documents are signed and filed with the court, the final decree can be submitted to the judge for his or her signature.

Most courts require that you and your spouse attend a divorce education class. The goal of the program is to help parents avoid many of the emotional and behavioral pitfalls often associated with divorce. More information about the Kentucky programs can be found here.

Getting a divorce impacts your access to your children, your money, and all of your property. For this reason, we recommend the advice and assistance of an experienced attorney. That is where we come in! Using our approach, you will understand all aspects of your divorce settlement, ensuring that you get exactly what you want out of your divorce. All at a low cost.

The Family Court requires the filing of a Petition for Dissolution, a financial disclosure, and a settlement agreement. The settlement agreement is the document that sets forth the parties’ agreement on all issues. At the conclusion of the divorce, the settlement agreement becomes an enforceable court order.

We perform a conflict check as a first step before we are hired. We, as attorneys, have ethical obligations to our clients, former clients, and prospective clients to decline any representation that would compromise their interests. So, before we are hired, we check a database to ensure that no conflict of interest exists that would prevent our representation of you. In some cases, when a conflict of interest is found, it can be waived by written agreement.

All of our clients sign a representation agreement that defines the services we will be providing to our clients. In our uncontested divorce cases, our clients sign our Limited Representation Agreement, that sets forth the services we do and do not provide for our low flat-fee. It is very important that all of our clients read and understand the representation agreement, and all are encourage to ask our attorneys any questions they may have about the agreement.

More specifically, our Limited Representation Agreement states, among other things, that our representation of you is limited to our uncontested divorce service. This means we will advise you, draft, and file all documents necessary to file your divorce. However, our service does not include finding your spouse, negotiating with your spouse or their attorney, requesting documents or investigating your spouse’s finances, and other services that we provide our clients as part of litigation.

Our online intake questionnaire is powered by Formsite.com. The data we collect is stored by Formsite.com and securely accessed by our team. Our secure intake questionnaire encrypts your data to protect it when stored and when transmitted. Formsite.com utilizes Amazon Web Services and their datacenters with hosting in the United States.

This depends on where you will be filing in part. In Kentucky, the court requires that we complete a financial disclosure statement that sets forth your and your spouse’s income, assets, and debts. So, you will need information about your income, your bank balance, investment account balances, retirement account balances, debt balances, and information about other property you own. It is important that your disclosure be complete and accurate to prevent future litigation about an undisclosed asset or debt.

In Indiana, the court allows you to waive the filing of financial disclosures statements by written waiver of you and your spouse. So, the intake questionnaire will be shorter. One of the documents we prepare is a waiver of the filing of financial disclosure statements.
An uncontested divorce requires that you and your spouse reach an agreement regarding custody, parenting time, property division, debt division, and support issues. If you and your spouse disagree about one or more of those broad categories, then your divorce is not uncontested.

In an uncontested divorce involving children, most parties have a functional relationship and are able to communicate. Normally, the parties agree to joint custody and a flexible parenting time schedule. Where communication is impossible, an uncontested divorce may not be possible.

Regarding property division and debt division, an uncontested divorce requires transparency by you and your spouse. If your spouse refuses to inform you about his or her assets, an uncontested divorce is likely not in your best interest. You cannot make an informed decision about settlement of your divorce without all necessary information. Additionally, your attorney will not be able to advise you about your rights and best interests without transparency.

There are two claims for support that can be made in a divorce – child support and maintenance (spousal support/alimony). An agreement must be reached with your spouse on these issues.

In both Indiana and Kentucky, the child support guidelines provide a formula for calculating a child support obligation based on the parties’ income, health insurance premiums for the children, and work-related childcare expenses for the children. The overnights each parent has with the children is also a factor in the child support formula. You and your spouse must agree upon either 1) the child support amount required by the guidelines or 2) any other amount you agree upon, including zero. However, a deviation from the guidelines must be explained in your settlement agreement. We know what to do.

Regarding maintenance, there is no statutory formula. If you or your spouse require maintenance, you must agree upon 1) the monthly amount and 2) the term.

The court calculates the monthly amount after hearing evidence about he net income and reasonable monthly living expenses of both parties. So, the agreed upon maintenance amount should be based on your and your spouse’s monthly expenses after the divorce.

Indiana and Kentucky law are quite different when it comes to maintenance. If you and your spouse agree about an amount, an uncontested divorce could fit. If not, give us call. We can still help, although your divorce will not be uncontested.

In summary, all issues in your divorce must be agreed upon for your divorce to be uncontested. This also necessitates that you know where your spouse is located and that you are able to communicate with them. If you have questions about this, give us a call.

Testimonials

See What Others Have to Say
After working with substandard attention and performance from a previous attorney, while my personal matter continued to escalate, I searched for an attorney online who would take my serious family matters seriously - no more lip service. As their website says “Damn Good Attorneys,” they performed outstandingly and expeditiously and resolved all of my legal issues. They don’t waste your time or money and are exceptionally professional. Timeliness is valued too. You get what you pay for, so don’t waste your time or money with less expensive representation. I highly recommend Barrow Brown.
