"Cheap" Divorce Attorneys in Augusta GA

Do you bloggers "out there" ever check to see what key words bring folks to your blogs? I have noticed that we, at the Goolsby Law Firm, LLC, (see our law firm's website here), sometimes receive visits to our sites from people looking for "cheap divorce lawyers in Augusta, Georgia." Should this make our divorce lawyer law firm happy or sad?!

I guess it depends upon which definition of the word "cheap" you go with!  For instance, according to the free online dictionary, one definition of "cheap" would refer to a divorce attorney who is "relatively low in cost," or "inexpensive."  I like that definition! And I believe it applies to us, because we attempt to make our services as Georgia divorce lawyers affordable, low in cost, or relatively inexpensive.

But according to another definition of "cheap," it would refer to a divorce lawyer who is "of poor quality," or "stingy." Naturally, we do not accept that definition of the divorce attorneys at our Augusta, Georgia law firm! We always try to give good, personal service, in divorce or child custody cases, at a low cost. We also offer free initial consultations.

In any event, no matter how you came to visit our divorce blog, or our Augusta, GA divorce law firm, we welcome you and hope to provide you with some good, general information and tips for you to discuss with your own divorce lawyer.  And this is better than cheap. It is free!

Celebrity Break-ups and Divorces: Lena Headey

After several posts about practical tips and general information about divorce, let's finish up the week with another post about celebrity separations and divorces.

Are you familiar with Lena Headey, the star of the hit HBO series dealing with medieval fantasy, Game of Thrones?  Well, maybe you will also recall some of her other work, such as playing Queen Gorgo in the manly war movie, 300.

According to various news reports, Ms. Headey filed for divorce earlier this week, following a five-year marriage, from her musician spouse, Peter Loughran.  They reportedly have one son.

As we have discussed before, sometimes, being a celebrity can clearly add unique stressors to a marriage.  Don't you agree? Here's hoping that this couple can amicably work through any remaining issues in their divorce with the help of their respective divorce lawyers.

When is Your Divorce Final?

As Augusta, GA divorce lawyers, we have discussed before in this divorce blog the fact that you should not start "foolin' around," date, or even visit online dating sites, until your divorce is final. But do you really understand when your divorce from your worthless spouse, "Sluggo," is actually final?

The simple answer to this question is that your Georgia divorce is generally not final until after the judge has actually signed a final divorce decree. In other words, having your divorce attorney to file for a divorce is NOT the same as getting a final divorce decree, (which generally comes at the end of the divorce case). 
You might be surprised as to how many calls we receive from folks who fail to understand this important distinction!

Of course, you should discuss this matter, like all your other questions about divorce, with your own divorce lawyer! And like we have also cautioned before, please don't start dating until after you consult with your divorce attorney, and until after your divorce is final!

What is the Price or Cost of a Divorce in Georgia?

As Augusta, Georgia divorce lawyers, we attempt to provide some good, practical tips and information for you to discuss with your own divorce lawyer. We also sometimes blog about celebrity divorces and try to keep things entertaining, or interesting!

Today, let's focus on some more practical tips. One of the most common questions which we receive, as divorce attorneys, is: How much will it cost to get a divorce?

The answer is that it depends upon whether or not the divorce will be simple and uncontested.  In other words, if your worthless spouse, "Sluggo," will fully cooperate and agree to all your terms, and if he will promptly sign all the divorce documents without any issues or problems, then we may, in many simple, uncontested divorce cases, be able to handle your divorce for as low as $500.00 in legal fees, plus costs, (which includes a court filing fee of $205.00).

Of course, if Sluggo proves to be difficult, or spiteful, and if he refuses to fully cooperate and sign all the documents, then the divorce becomes contested, which means that the price will likely run into several thousand dollars, at a minimum.

Again, we recommend that you retain your own divorce attorney and discuss all the facts and your questions, along with all your rights and options.  Here's hoping you have a great week and that Sluggo will be cooperative, if you elect to get a divorce!
