So how much will a divorce cost? If it is a contested divorce or family law case, i.e., one in which agreement is not reached in advance, the total fee cannot be determined in advance since the other party controls 50% of the case process and how hard-fought matters like child support, parenting, spousal maintenance, and property division will be. Fees are directly related to time consumed in court and outside of court handling an uncooperative, unreasonable spouse, and hiring third party expert witnesses to resolve financial and parenting matters.
On the other hand, an uncontested divorce, or amicable divorce where spouses have few disagreements quickly resolved through negotiations or the mediation process, will require less time and incur less fees.
“No Sticker Shock” Policy. At Weintraub Law Office, we do what we can to keep your legal fees reasonable and affordable. While we will aggressively defend your legal rights, we also avoid unnecessary litigation and frequently use alternate, more affordable means of obtaining settlement through mediation and arbitration. We also provide fee estimates every step of the way, and offer flat fee rates for uncontested cases and divorce and family law mediation services for spouses looking to resolve their case with or without formal legal representation.
