The Law Office of Attorney Edward R. Shaw offers free, no obligation phone or in-person consultations and affordable flat fees for many of the services offered.

Divorce or Family Services:

Cost of divorce varies greatly depending upon many factors including:

  • Amount and complexity of assets and property to divide
  • Level of disagreement in debt or property division
  • Whether children are involved
  • Level of disagreement on custody arrangement and child support obligations
  • Level of disagreement on other issues

Some divorce and custody cases can be handled on a flat fee basis. If both parties agree on how assets, property, and parenting will be handled, this is an “uncontested” divorce. Uncontested divorces start at $800.

Criminal and traffic cases can often be handled with a pre-arranged flat fee. Fee level depends on the complexity of the case and the severity of the charge.
