You should probably to talk to an attorney that lives in the state she will be filing in, rather than someone local, as you will be abiding by that state's divorce laws.

I did an uncontested divorce in CA and it cost me about $1000 in lawyers fees for them to help me fill out the paperwork to file myself. If she is filing and you are not required to respond if you do not disagree with the terms she has specified (in CA only 1 person is required to file and the other has 30 days to contest it), you may not even have to do anything at all (my ex didn't) or pay anything.

Check out the Nolo Press Divorce book for the state she'll be filing in, as well. Lots of free legal advice.

Good luck!!!!

I have heard that divorce lawyers are expensive because they are worth it. If you get a cheap one and your spouse gets a good one, you will pay for the rest of your life

I am on the very short end of the stick

need an attorney quickly who will work on a pay as you go basis......

do they exist?
if so
they can message me at mjfc0923@gmail.com
due in court next tuesday


If you're looking for lower rates, your best bet may be to go with a younger attorney who has experience and is building up their clientele. An attorney I work with recommended two of his classmates from Campbell for family law:
Mariana Godwin with Wyrick & Robbins in Raleigh. 919-781-4000 Wyrick Robbins Yates&Ponton LLP
Brantley Tanner w/ The Law Office of Mark E. Sullivan also in Raleigh. (919) 832-8507
