How Much Does Divorce Cost If Both Parties Agree?

How Much Does Divorce Cost If Both Parties Agree

Whenever it comes to filing for divorce, there is generally quite a bit of emotional and financial stress that comes along with it. You will want to work with an experienced and knowledgeable divorce attorney who you feel comfortable discussing the important details of your marriage and family life with. This attorney will be responsible for all legal matters surrounding your divorce, including filing the paperwork, negotiating on your behalf, as well as guiding you for optimal results. Your divorce attorney will help you come up with solutions for dividing debt, assets, and responsibilities that were shared in the marriage. The more in depth your debt, assets, and responsibilities are, the more time your divorce attorney will need to spend on your case. This makes it difficult to give a direct answer for how much a divorce will cost because there are many variables that must be weighed to know the answer. The cost of divorce can range from hundreds to thousands, to tens of thousands of dollars for divorce cases that go to trial.


In general, amicable divorces, where both parties agree on the issues at hands, often referred to as collaborative divoce, cost much less. This is because they are able to directly negotiate and cut down on the back and forth that often comes with contiguous, contested divorces. If both parties are willing to sit down and peacefully talk out the issues in their marriage, they may find mediation to be the best fit for their divorce. Divorce mediation tends to be the most affordable and direct divorce process. Couples who wish to work together can quickly work through their issues and peacefully reach an agreement together. In mediation, all of the choices are left 100% up to the couple to decide on how debt, assets, and responsibilities will be divided. The agreement is not finalized until both parties agree and sign the agreement. In litigated divorces, a judge will have the final say in your divorce case, which can leave both parties feeling unheard and unsatisfied with the results.
