What's the Cost for a Divorce Lawyer

When it comes to getting a divorce it is very difficult to estimate how much it’s going to cost. However you can sit down with an attorney and get a fairly good idea based on the issues in your case. Know that typically every item that is up for contention (i.e. you’ll be fighting over) can add to the cost. One of the biggest factors as well is whether you have kids. That complicates the situation as it brings in things such as child support, visitation rights, etc.

Talk with an attorney and see if they’ve dealt with situations similar to yours. This may help get a ballpark idea as to the overall or on-going costs of your divorce. However, know that during a divorce things can change and the costs can change as well.

If you talk with an attorney who charges a flat fee divorce know exactly what you are getting yourself into. You don’t want to pay a flat fee only to find out there are other charges you weren’t aware of. Or that they can’t handle additional matters that may come up later. You hopefully will work with someone who can handle all kinds of new situations you may be facing. For example, one minute you and your ex may agree there will be no spousal support. They may 3 months later decide to change that based on new information. You need an attorney who can help guide you through the change.
