BY THE PEOPLE can help with Uncontested Divorce or Legal Separation. For couples who can resolve their own asset and debt division and/or child issues, BY THE PEOPLE can prepare all of the necessary documents for you to obtain your divorce. We also do all of the filing and procedural work throughout the process.
Since we are a local company and file divorces every day, we can provide you with up to date information about filing fees and the local court systems. In California the minimum time period for a divorce is 6 months from the date of service.
Our fees to prepare all of your divorce or legal separation documents are $399.00 (No Kids, No Assets or Debts, Less than 5yrs) $599.00 (no Kids) $699.00 (w/Kids). The other fees you will pay will be the filing fee for the court of $485.00 and a filing service fee of $50.00. Our fee is due up front, and we accept cash, check or credit cards. The filing fee for the court is not due up front; it is due as soon as you are ready to file with the court. The paperwork is usually ready to file within a week of starting the process. The Court only accepts cash, check or money order for their fees.
