You’ve probably Googled “How do I get a cheap divorce in Louisiana?” more times than you want to admit. In fact, it sounds strange to say the words “cheap” and “divorce” in the same sentence these days. We all know how expensive divorces can be in Louisiana but they don’t all have to break the bank depending on the facts of your case and your ability to communicate with your ex.
Hotly contested divorces can cost a small fortune and involve days of fighting in court. It’s hard to stop once you go down that road and communication breaks down between you and your ex. However, not all divorces have to go to court. In fact, the parties can agree on all matters and get an uncontested divorce and avoid court.
What is an Uncontested Divorce in Louisiana and Why do they cost less?
