Surviving Financial Crises


Is it expensive to file for divorce?

Depending on where you live, the complexity and size of your financial picture, whether or not you have children, and how easy both parties wish to make the dissolution of their marriage, it can cost anywhere from a few hundred dollars to many thousands of dollars in attorneys’ fees to end a marriage. In California, an average divorce costs between $5,000 and $15,000, and may take anywhere from six months to one year before it is concluded in the courts.
