The Gentle Divorce Prices and Services

With The Gentle Divorce, we want you to be able to know exactly how much a divorce will cost you.  So we have flat-rate pricing for divorce packages that are generally all-inclusive.  There are no hidden fees or expanding retainers.  Of course, we can always customize our services to your needs.  Just let us know what you need. Package 1: $3500. Minor Children For divorcing couples who have minor children from their relationship or need to develop custody, visitation, or child support agreements. This package includes: Up to eight (8) hours in our office (typically 3 meetings) Preparation and notarization of Marital Settlement Agreement, including Parenting Plan. Education and complete support with remaining court documents and filing. Reasonable telephone and/or email communication throughout the process. Package 2: $3000. Assets, No Minor Children For divorcing couples who do not have minor children in their relationship, but have financial assets, debts, or other property interests that need to be divided. This package includes: Up to six (6) hours in our office (typically 2 meetings). Preparation and notarization of Marital Settlement Agreement. Education and support with remaining court documents and filing. Reasonable telephone and/or email communication throughout the process. Package 3: $2000. No Assets, No Minor Children For divorcing couples who do not have minor children from their relationship and have little or no assets or debt. This package includes: Up to four (4) hours in our office (typically 2 meetings). Preparation and notarization of Marital Settlement Agreement. Education and support with remaining court documents and filing. Reasonable telephone and/or email communication throughout the process. Court Filling Fees An additional cost to every divorce is court filing fees.  Currently California Family Courts require each filing party to pay $435 to file for divorce.  However, with a Marital Settlement Agreement, you can file for a ‘default with agreement’ divorce where you only have to pay one court filing fee. Other Services Other requested services, like single session mediation, limited scope, consultations, etc is charged our rate of $250 an hour. We offer free phone consultations to discuss how divorce mediation can help your family.  We can also mail or email you and your spouse free brochures and guides about Divorce Mediation and The Gentle Divorce process (request free brochures here).  We can also meet in-person for a 30 minute in-person consultation for a cost of $100. If you and your spouse are having particularly hard time coming to an agreement, more mediation sessions may be needed than your package includes.  Our rate is $250 an hour for additional mediation sessions.  You may also wish to consult with an outside attorney regarding the Marital Settlement Agreement to ensure you are given all your legal rights.  If you need a QDRO (to divide up certain pensions), deeds drawn up, or other complex documents, we can usually provide those specific documents for an extra fee. Payment Options We accept all major credit cards, debit cards, checks, and cash.  For packaged flat-rate services, half of the fee is due at the first session, and the remaining half is due at the second session.  Other fees are due at the time of service.
