Divorce Costs

Dear GregC:

Greetings. For an absolute divorce the firm charges $1,000.00 plus filing fees of $90.00 and any service charges. You will not need to go to court if we do your divorce for you. I hope that helps!

The response posted above is based upon the limited factual information made available and is not intended as a full and complete response to the question. The only reliable manner to obtain complete and adequate legal advice is to consult with an attorney, fully explain your situation, and allow the attorney sufficient opportunity to research the applicable law and facts required to render an accurate opinion. The basic information provided above is intended as a public service but a full discussion with an attorney should be undertaken before taking any action.

I’d like to get a basic idea of how much filing for divorce will cost (the fee calculator on this site seems to be geared more towards people who will need extensive litigation)…my wife and I have been separated for over a year, have no children and are in agreement about getting a divorce. In other words, I basically just need help filling out and filing the papers, as neither of us have any disagreements that would require more extensive legal help. I’ve considered a “do-it-yourself” option, but would be more comfortable with a Lawyer helping me through the process…I just need to know if my budget can handle the cost! Thanks!
