HOW MUCH WILL MY DIVORCE COST

Everyone who consults with me about divorce wants to know what it will cost. That is not an easy question to answer. The most direct answer is that the more the parties disagree, the more it will cost. If the husband and wife cannot talk to each other and require everything to be in a letter written by a lawyer, the cost will be more.

To control costs try to make a list of issues which you might be able to resolve with your spouse. You can also save time and money by being responsive to your lawyer's requests. Answer discovery (written requests from the other side) timely to avoid having your attorney write to you about overdue discovery responses. If you try to give your attorney full and complete responses to document requests or interrogatories (questions from the other side) your lawyer will spend less time working on your responses because he has everything he needs.

Of course, there are certain issues such as custody and alimony which are the most emotional and, therefore, lead to the most attorneys fees. These battles must be fought, but if you give your attorney everything he needs to be your advocate, his preparation time will be shortened and you can save money.
