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.
