Courtney and Mills
On September 13, 2006, despite the fact that it was Friday the 13th, Courtney & Mills, LLC opened its doors for business. Our firm consists of two attorneys—Ann Mills and Chad Courtney, along with three support staff. In the 10+ years since that day, we have chosen to remain a small firm so that we can form a personal relationship with you. This allows us to have a better understanding of your needs.
From us, you can expect an atmosphere where you will be educated about the law as it applies to your case. We provide options so you understand the paths your case may take. We also provide resolutions you can live with, while knowing sometimes the only resolution is to allow a judge to decide the issues.
No divorce costs the same. This is true even for online divorces done through our website, Missouri Divorce Source. Divorces that begin online here manage to avoid costly court appearance fees. For an online divorce where all the terms are agreed to and no children and property are involved, the cost is $500 plus the county filing fee. This fee varies by county.
Now if you do have property and/or children, then the price increases. If you have some property and no children, then the cost is typically $600 plus the county filing fee. For children and property, the typical cost is $700 along with the county filing fee.
One thing to remember is that these fees are not set in stone. If at any point the terms are no longer agreed to and you have to appear in court, your spouse has to be personally served the divorce papers, or you need to consult with your attorney in person, then those fees get applied as well. If you and your spouse can agree on the terms, then you can still save quite a bit of money even if property and children are involved.
