How is the cost of a divorce determined?

The cost of a divorce can range from inexpensive to millions of dollars. Some of what impacts the cost of a divorce is the couples’s financial status, but other considerations can come into play as well. Factors that will determine how much money it takes to get divorced include:

  • The relationship between the divorcing parties. The more contentious the divorce, the more expensive it will be.  A rare amicable case will cost the parties very little.
  • Whether it is necessary to engage the Court’s assistance in resolving issues the parties cannot resolve before going to trial. The attorney will bill for each motion/cross-motion, reply and court appearance that is required, by the hour.
  • The size of the marital estate. If accounting experts need to get involved in order to trace or value assets, the the divorce may cost more.

The precise cost of a divorce cannot be predicted, and costs can vary widely among different litigants and cases. Contact the Law Office of Andrew A. Bestafka, Esq. at (732) 898-2378 to discuss the details of your situation with an experienced legal professional.
