Making an Affidavit of Consent

  • What is an Affidavit of Consent?

    An Affidavit of Consent is a legal document that you can use to agree to move forward with a no-fault divorce. In some states, it's a required first step for this type of divorce, where both spouses agree that the other spouse isn't at fault—in other words, neither spouse caused the divorce. When you make an Affidavit of Consent, note that you may be acknowledging and accepting the loss of certain rights regarding alimony, property, and lawyer's fees. Once you've completed this document, you typically need to sign it in front of a notary public, depending on the local and state laws where you live.

  • Should I hire an attorney to review my Affidavit of Consent?

    Making an Affidavit of Consent is usually simple, but you could still need advice. Depending on whom you contact, some attorneys may not even agree to review your document if they were not the one who wrote it. A better approach to consider is to get help via Rocket Lawyer attorney services.

  • How much would I traditionally pay for a lawyer to help me make an Affidavit of Consent?

    The cost of meeting and hiring your average law firm to write an Affidavit of Consent might be between two hundred and one thousand dollars, depending on where you are located and how complicated it may be. Unlike many other websites that you may come across, Rocket Lawyer offers much more than Affidavit templates.

  • Does an Affidavit of Consent Form need to be notarized or witnessed?
