Court costs are based on service of your spouse in Virginia. If your spouse does NOT LIVE in Virginia, than the court costs may be a little different depending on where your spouse lives and how much the sheriff charges for service in that state.

If you do not know where your spouse lives, you may have to PUBLISH for service. Publication costs run about $282.00 extra.

If your spouse is in jail, you may have to hire a Guardian ad litem (an attorney) to represent your spouse. This costs about $500.

If your spouse is on active duty in the U.S. military, there may be other issues involved with serving your spouse. This issue should be discussed with Ms. Solomon.

If you are the wife filing for divorce and you want your name changed back to your maiden name or former married name in the course of a divorce, we charge $71.00 to record the name change.

If you and your spouse are in disagreement about custody, child support, property division or any other major issue, your divorce is probably not going to be “uncontested” and different fees apply.
