How Much Does a Divorce Cost?
If you are contemplating or going through a divorce, one of your biggest concerns will be how much it will cost. There is no way to know the exact amount, but knowing what the typical costs are in your area and understanding the factors that could influence that cost would likely help.
The Cost of Divorce Lawyers
If you hire a lawyer to represent you in your divorce or any family law case, your most considerable divorce expense will be the legal fees. The final bill will include two components: The attorney’s hourly rate and the total number of hours the attorney needs to spend to address all the issues in your case.
Divorce Representation by a Skilled Attorney
Even though divorce is never easy, we work with you to make the transition as smooth as possible. By seeing the big picture, we can help you make informed decisions about your case in your defense. You and your family need to know your options and the process to plan for a better future. At times, this means negotiating for a fair and equitable settlement. In other cases, this means moving forward with trial preparation.
