Cost and Expenses

There are different types of costs in divorce cases. The largest cost is usually attorney fees, which is what I charge for the work I do on your case. (See the section on Attorney Fees.) Court costs are the fees that are charged by the court for the filing of the divorce papers and various other papers.

In contested cases, attorney fees and court costs are higher and there may be other costs for things such as depositions, private investigators, photographs, psychological evaluations, and tax consultants. You must pay these costs, as we are ethically prohibited from lending clients money.

Any discussion about what the costs or attorney fees will be is the roughest of estimates. There are many variables in any divorce case, including some over which I have no control. Who your spouse will hire as a lawyer, how complex the financial issues are, or what mood the judge is in on the day of trial will affect how I handle your case and, therefore, what it will cost you.

The emotional cost of a divorce can be greater than the dollar cost. The damage of having a broken marriage examined in court is something only those who have lived through it can understand.
