Question: How Much Does A Divorce Cost?

YouTube | “How much does a divorce cost?”

So how much does a divorce cost?  In the video I use a vehicle metaphor and the truth is, it is probably one of the more accurate ways to talk about divorce since there are so many variables involved, whether it’s property, custody, spousal support, or everything and anything in between.

While it might be true that a lawyer can “quote” you a price for a divorce, it simply isn’t consistent case to case and the range, as I pointed out, is “big”.  The truth is, it is much bigger than most people think, and I’ve certainly gotten my fair share of surprised looks.

An average divorce in The United States costs anywhere between $10,000 and $20,000, but this is typically without any really lengthy property lists, and assumes that things will not be overly complex.  There are a lot of things associated with the cost of a divorce and it differs from county to county, state to state, so your case could be much different.

Another thing that I touched on that is important to remember is that there is another type of cost, aside from financial, in the case of a divorce.  It’s called: Custody.  In a divorce oftentimes one parent will lose a lot of the time they previously had with their children.  It isn’t always so horrific but there have been instances of parents losing greatly and that is a cost in itself as well and certainly something to remember.

So how much does a divorce cost?  Well, it’s just not simple, and I realize that’s probably not an answer you want to hear, but your best bet is always to call your attorney and ask because every case is different, and in divorce law there could never have been a truer statement.
