Are the filing fees included in your price and what typically are they?

No, we do not:

  • file your documents,

  • collect your filing fees, or

  • pay them to your county for you.

The filing fees in each state or county vary. We recommend you call your court before filing so you are prepared to make the payment at the time of filing. Filing fees typically range from $225.00 to $400.00. If you spouse agrees to the divorce, you should be able to save money on the fees related to serving the divorce petition on your spouse. There may be additional fees for copies of documents and other special requests from the court. If you cannot afford the filing fee, your county may allow you provide evidence of inability to pay and waive the filing fees.
