Our firm requires payment of $250 for the initial consultation with one of our lawyers.
For contested divorce and child custody cases we use value based billing with a Fee-by-Stages approach. For example, Negotiating and filing a Separation Agreement Including Divorce, and child custody arrangements, and alimony, and a restraining order or an injunction, and to seek any other necessary relief might cost a flat fee of $6,925.
What will a divorce cost?
Divorce and child custody cases can be costly. The amount of conflict between the parties determines the cost of your case. We have done a survey of our cases, and we find they fall into three basic categories. The first is the category where the parties are able to agree on things fairly quickly. This happens in 25 percent of our cases and the range of cost is from $6,325 to $9,575. The second range includes 50 percent of our case, and this cost ranges from $9,625 to $13,595. The third range is the difficult litigation range, where there are substantial assets in the millions of dollars at stake. These cases begin at $15,325.
