Tips for Reducing Costs During Divorce

Updated: Oct 17, 2022

I read an article today about cutting the costs of divorce. Divorces can result in costs running out of control with emotions high. Keep these points in mind to reduce yours costs:

1. Price Shop your Attorney. For a number of reasons, attorneys will have different costs. Like any major financial decision, be sure to shop around when making a choice about attorney in you area.

2. Have Knowledge About Fee Structures.Some attorneys will work with you in terms of making payment plans to fit your budget. Some attorneys may even be willing to work part of your case limited scope. In a limited scope arrangement, you get a pay-as-you go hourly situation where your attorney can coach you (for example filling out forms), or represent you..

3. Filing Fees and Economic Hardship. Sometimes a barrier to divorce beyond the attorney fees can be the filing fees. In California, the filing fees for divorce are $435. Many people, however, do not know that if suffering economic hardship, they can petition for a filing fee to be waived!
