Frequently Asked Questions
What's this going to cost?
Mr. Gubin charges $300 an hour, but he does not have a minimum charge for every contact. So you are not charged for a 1/10th of an hour (6 minutes of time) if a call or email takes 2 minutes. You are encouraged to discuss fees ahead of time.
Is there a flat rate for uncontested divorces?
Mr. Gubin charges a flat rate of $895 for his services in an uncontested divorce, plus there is an $86 court filing fee. This covers everything from drafting and filing the complaint, drafting the final decree, preparing a waiver for your spouse to sign, preparing a required statistical form, preparing written affidavits for you and a corroborating witness, submitting all to the court, and sending you a certified copy of the final decree. If there are additional services (e.g. preparing a deed for real estate, changing wife's name back to her maiden name, etc.,) there are charges for those, but not excessive. He'll ll be happy to provide you exact quotes when you meet. See the blog for more detail on uncontested divorce.
