What is the average amount an attorney charges to file a divorce in New Jersey?

One of the most common questions that people have when they are think about "filing for an uncontested divorce" or "getting an amicable divorced" in New Jersey, is: "how much does it cost to get an uncontested divorce in New Jersey?"
Typically, when a person hires a New Jersey divorce attorney, their attorney charges them an "legal fee" to prepare their divorce papers.
Average attorney legal fee for an uncontested divorce:
Attorney fees for a "contested" divorce range from approximately $200 to $600 an hour depending on the complexity of the case and the expertise of the attorney.
Many cheap divorce attorneys charge flat fees to handle uncontested divorces.
The average Cheap New Jersey divorce Attorney fee for an "uncontested" divorce ranges from $500 to $1,500 for a simple uncontested divorce.
Attorney fees are even higher for cases with complex issues involving children and division of marital property.
When the attorney brings the signed divorce papers to Court to start the case, the Court charges the attorney a "Court filing fee" to issue the Court's Docket Number.
Sometimes there are a few more Court filing fees that must be paid when the attorney files the divorce papers in court. All of these court filing fees are generally referred to as the Court filing fees.
The key point here, is that in addition to an attorney's "legal fee" to prepare the divorce papers, an attorney will also charge their client for the Court's "filing fees" which the attorney pays directly to the Court.
The Court's filing fees are commonly referred to as "Court costs" when an attorney bills their client for them.
It is very important to keep in mind that divorce lawyers typically charge a smaller legal fee for the most simple type of uncontested divorce, (where there are no minor children, no property to divide, no spousal support and no marital settlement agreement).
Naturally, as the complexity of the uncontested divorce increases a divorce lawyer will increase the amount of their legal fee that they charge their client.

The Complaint must state that you and your spouse have lived in different residences for 18 months or more and that the months have been consecutive.

You do not have to file any documents to start the running of the 18 months.

  6. Willful And Continued Desertion, Physical. If your spouse moved out of the marital home and your spouse has been gone for at least 12 months. The desertion must be for 12 consecutive months. If you and your spouse agree that you will separate and that your spouse will move out, you may still file a Complaint based on desertion.
  7. Willful And Continued Desertion, Sexual. Sexual desertion is a persistent refusal by your spouse to engage in sexual relations with you for a period of 12 months or more. This type of desertion cannot be by mutual consent. Your spouse must refuse to engage in relations you desire and would engage in if your spouse were willing.

  9. Adultery. If your spouse is having an affair and you know the name and address of the "other spouse" you may file for a divorce based on adultery.

How does attorney advertised "online divorce" work?

Many attorneys advertise that they provide an online divorce service. However, they actually prepare the divorce forms in the attorney's office - not online.
In order to file for an uncontested divorce in New Jersey, you need to have all of the required divorce forms filled out correctly.
One way to do this, is to hire a New Jersey Divorce Attorney who will prepare your divorce forms by using information you provide to the attorney when you meet with them in their office.
Some New Jersey divorce lawyers advertise that they provide cheap divorces and "online divorce" and have a website where a customer can enter some basic information about their divorce that is emailed to the attorney for their review.
If the customer decides to hire the attorney to prepare their divorce papers, they provide the remainder of their information about their divorce to the attorney via email, an online questionnaire, or by visiting the attorney's office.
When the attorney has all of the information about the case, the attorney creates the divorce forms and fills them out with the customer's information.
The customer then reviews the divorce forms by either traveling to the attorney's office, or by having them mailed, or emailed to them.
If any corrections are necessary to the divorce forms, the attorney makes them and the customer reviews them again.. and again ... as needed, until they are ready to be filed.
Thus, when an attorney advertises that they provide "online divorce" the bulk of the effort is performed by the attorney "in their office" to create the divorce forms and complete them, and the customer has to spend considerable time waiting to have the divorce forms mailed to them for review.
Also, they need to spend time to travel to the attorney's office to provide information about their case, and to review the divorce forms.
Many New Jersey Divorce Attorneys have divorce paralegals in their office who type and prepare the divorce papers for their clients.
In addition to Attorney provided divorce online, there are also cheap paralegal services that provide divorce help and type up uncontested divorce papers for their customers and provide them to their customers online, by mail or in person.

Perfect uncontested divorce papers.
Great service.

I used this website to get my divorce papers and I then went to court and filed them myself. The website is very easy to use but I had a few questions and they were all answered when I called customer support.

  1. The New Jersey State Court filing fee is $300.
  2. If the plaintiff is granted a low income fee waiver by the Court they will not have to pay the filing fees.

What is the average amount an attorney charges to file a divorce in New Jersey?

One of the most common questions that people have when they are think about "filing for an uncontested divorce" or "getting an amicable divorced" in New Jersey, is: "how much does it cost to get an uncontested divorce in New Jersey?"
Typically, when a person hires a New Jersey divorce attorney, their attorney charges them an "legal fee" to prepare their divorce papers.
Average attorney legal fee for an uncontested divorce:
Attorney fees for a "contested" divorce range from approximately $200 to $600 an hour depending on the complexity of the case and the expertise of the attorney.
Many cheap divorce attorneys charge flat fees to handle uncontested divorces.
The average Cheap New Jersey divorce Attorney fee for an "uncontested" divorce ranges from $500 to $1,500 for a simple uncontested divorce.
Attorney fees are even higher for cases with complex issues involving children and division of marital property.
When the attorney brings the signed divorce papers to Court to start the case, the Court charges the attorney a "Court filing fee" to issue the Court's Docket Number.
Sometimes there are a few more Court filing fees that must be paid when the attorney files the divorce papers in court. All of these court filing fees are generally referred to as the Court filing fees.
The key point here, is that in addition to an attorney's "legal fee" to prepare the divorce papers, an attorney will also charge their client for the Court's "filing fees" which the attorney pays directly to the Court.
The Court's filing fees are commonly referred to as "Court costs" when an attorney bills their client for them.
It is very important to keep in mind that divorce lawyers typically charge a smaller legal fee for the most simple type of uncontested divorce, (where there are no minor children, no property to divide, no spousal support and no marital settlement agreement).
Naturally, as the complexity of the uncontested divorce increases a divorce lawyer will increase the amount of their legal fee that they charge their client.

The Complaint must state that you and your spouse have lived in different residences for 18 months or more and that the months have been consecutive.

You do not have to file any documents to start the running of the 18 months.

  6. Willful And Continued Desertion, Physical. If your spouse moved out of the marital home and your spouse has been gone for at least 12 months. The desertion must be for 12 consecutive months. If you and your spouse agree that you will separate and that your spouse will move out, you may still file a Complaint based on desertion.

How does attorney advertised "online divorce" work?

Many attorneys advertise that they provide an online divorce service. However, they actually prepare the divorce forms in the attorney's office - not online.
In order to file for an uncontested divorce in New Jersey, you need to have all of the required divorce forms filled out correctly.
One way to do this, is to hire a New Jersey Divorce Attorney who will prepare your divorce forms by using information you provide to the attorney when you meet with them in their office.
Some New Jersey divorce lawyers advertise that they provide cheap divorces and "online divorce" and have a website where a customer can enter some basic information about their divorce that is emailed to the attorney for their review.
If the customer decides to hire the attorney to prepare their divorce papers, they provide the remainder of their information about their divorce to the attorney via email, an online questionnaire, or by visiting the attorney's office.
When the attorney has all of the information about the case, the attorney creates the divorce forms and fills them out with the customer's information.
The customer then reviews the divorce forms by either traveling to the attorney's office, or by having them mailed, or emailed to them.
If any corrections are necessary to the divorce forms, the attorney makes them and the customer reviews them again.. and again ... as needed, until they are ready to be filed.
Thus, when an attorney advertises that they provide "online divorce" the bulk of the effort is performed by the attorney "in their office" to create the divorce forms and complete them, and the customer has to spend considerable time waiting to have the divorce forms mailed to them for review.
Also, they need to spend time to travel to the attorney's office to provide information about their case, and to review the divorce forms.
Many New Jersey Divorce Attorneys have divorce paralegals in their office who type and prepare the divorce papers for their clients.
In addition to Attorney provided divorce online, there are also cheap paralegal services that provide divorce help and type up uncontested divorce papers for their customers and provide them to their customers online, by mail or in person.

Perfect uncontested divorce papers.
Great service.

I used this website to get my divorce papers and I then went to court and filed them myself. The website is very easy to use but I had a few questions and they were all answered when I called customer support.
