    How Much Does a Divorce Cost?

    One of the most common questions asked by clients looking to get divorced is, “how much will this whole thing cost me?” It is an important question. The answer – it depends. Every case is different. A husband and wife who have been married for less than five years, have no children, and no joint assets will likely pay nominal legal expenses when compared to a husband and wife who have been married for fifteen years, have three children, a mortgage on a home, and multiple investment and savings accounts in their names.

    Nevertheless, here are some likely expenses that may be incurred during the divorce proceedings:

    • Attorney’s fees
    • Filing fees with the court
    • Mediation costs

    If you and your spouse own real estate, you will likely incur the following fees:

    • Refinancing costs (if the current mortgage is in both your names)
    • Record deed fees

    Some proactive steps you can take to reduce the costs associated with your divorce include these three tips:

    1. Determine What You Want the Outcome To Be

    If you go into a divorce knowing exactly what you want out of the process, it can help expedite the process and enable your Tempe divorce attorney to work with your spouse’s attorney to put together a settlement agreement you are pleased with.

    1. Get Your Paperwork In Order

    The effort needed to collect and examine pertinent financial, medical, and educational records can add time (and therefore costs) to the divorce process. It is strongly recommended that you examine your finances before meeting with a Tempe divorce attorney and come to your free initial consultation with a rough outline of the financial assets and liabilities that will likely be at issue in the divorce.

    1. Try to Develop a Cordial Working Relationship with Your Spouse

    Nobody enjoys going through a divorce. It is most often an emotionally draining experience. However, the experience can be over in a more expeditious manner if you and your spouse set aside any bickering and work to reach an amicable resolution.  The more you and your spouse can work out on your own, the fewer costs will be incurred.
