How Much Does a Divorce Cost?

 While the emotional cost and benefits of divorce can never be accurately calculated, the financial costs do not have to remain a mystery. 

 Attorneys fees associated with the divorce process can be both frightening and overwhelming.  In many cases the fear of the unknown costs is justified.  The thought of hiring a law firm to handle your divorce at $300.00 an hour without any idea of how many hours will be necessary to complete your divorce can sound like a risky proposition.  We agree.

 That is why our firm offers flat fee divorce options.  This option helps to alleviate the financial anxiety clients confront when selecting a law firm to handle their divorce. 

 During the initial consultation, the attorney will review the facts with you and outline different fee arrangements to meet your specific needs best.  Once you are able to select the best plan for you, you and your attorney can begin working on the most important part of the divorce,  obtaining the best long term solutions for you and your family. 

 While the cost of divorce is a very important factor in selecting a law firm to represent you, the knowledge and experience of the attorney whom you select is even more important. Divorce is a complicated legal process which produces long term effects on you, your assets and your family.  The law firm you select to lead you through this difficult time should focus their practice in divorce and provide representation you can trust .
