How much does it cost to get divorced?
It has been said that a divorce will cost as much as you can afford. Of course, the true cost of a divorce depends on many variable factors and not all of them are financial. The more complicated your case is, the more expensive it will be. For couples who don’t have disputes over children or a vast estate to divide, there may not be any reason to hire attorneys. If both parties can agree on who gets what, the simplest and cheapest option may be to handle the negotiation and paperwork by themselves using an online divorce forms service. Good online forms services offer a variety of divorce information and services, along with exact, state-specific legal forms to get the job done for a few hundred dollars or less. You can file the papers with the court yourself, or have an attorney file them for you as a one-time service that costs far less than a full-case representation would. – The Divorce.com Team Wendy Jaffe and Divorce.com can only provide general information about divorce.
