The cost of your divorce will depend on a number of factors, including, the complexity of your case, the attorney you hire, and the length of the process. As a result, the total cost of the process can be hard to predict.
Most attorneys will charge a “retainer fee” at the beginning of your representation and bill you at an hourly rate thereafter. A retainer is not a maximum or a minimum. There are also costs to consider such as, filing fees, mediation, etc. When you meet with an attorney, they will discuss your situation with you and have a better understanding of how much the process will cost. However, it is important to keep in mind that they will not be able to give you an exact figure. The most important question with respect to cost is not what the initial retainer may be but what the total cost would be for your case.
