uncontested divorce cost?

I know it can vary, but ballpark how much am I looking at? Everything is already agreed upon, we don't have much assets except the house and car. We are in Kentucky.

  • I'm not sure, my hubby and I are wanting to do the same thing and we live in Ky, Greenup Co. I thought about calling some lawyers and asking, but not sure if they charged anything fo rasking or not.

  • Holy CRAP. It was gonna cost me $1000 here in Alabama. The only way you can go to the courthouse an get a lawyer for this is if you go through something like Penelope House. But when I went to talk to a lawyer he said $1000!

  • My divorce in Florida was $2500 8 years ago. I would go online to LegalZoom and see what they can do, You could probably download the papers and file them yourself...saving a bundle.

  • What sucks is that in KY you have to go to mandatory Families in Transition class if you have kids. This is the only thing that is keeping me from trying to file myself. I may still try though. I probably just have to submit the completion form to the court I guess..

  • p.s. you can go to Legal Aid if money is a problem and see if they can do it for nothing or a sliding scale fee
