CALCULATING DIVORCE COSTS
Get Expert Guidance Negotiating Your Divorce
Divorces that are negotiated amicably with the help of an attorney are often less stressful and less expensive than divorces that wind up in court. Unfortunately, we can never control another party’s actions or goals, which means sometimes litigation is unavoidable. It is important to work with a legal expert to make sure you have what you need to either reach a settlement agreement or try the case before the Court.
How Much Does a Divorce Cost?
The cost of a divorce ranges and is influenced by several factors. At Sandoval Family Law, we have been able to finalize divorce cases under $2,500. In this type of scenario, both parties come to the table willing to negotiate and have done their homework ahead of time—meaning they have disclosed and calculated their assets and debts and have reached a general agreement about how everything should be divided. However, we have also seen cases in which our party is willing to compromise, but the opposing party is not willing to do the same, and the case goes to trial. In these instances, a divorce can cost tens of thousands of dollars and upward.
One way to gauge what your divorce may cost is to do your homework before hiring an attorney. To the extent possible, it is helpful for both parties to at least disclose what assets and debts make up the marital estate and to have some understanding of how they would like their custody arrangement to look like, if applicable. If you can reach general terms of agreement, you can take those terms to your respective attorneys and work on final orders.”
