What Qualifies as a Flat Fee Divorce?
A flat fee divorce is a divorce where an attorney and a client agree that the client will have their case taken care of for a previously agreed upon fee (fixed amount) as opposed to an hourly fee.
Typically an attorney will take a retainer from a client, and the bill the client monthly as hourly fees accrue.
However, during a flat fee divorce (including some uncontested divorces in Houston and Harris County), the client and attorney agree up front on a fixed amount to pursue the case, and the exact services that the attorney will provide.
This generally includes everything except for litigation in the court room, i.e., a trial.
If the case involves lengthy discovery (pre-trial litigation) then most attorneys will not agree to a flat fee divorce.
Examples of Flat Fee Divorce Cases in Texas
- Totally uncontested divorce cases where the couple completely agrees on exactly how the marriage will be dissolved.
- Cases where the differences are so minor that opposing attorneys can resolve them (or a mediator).
