Q: How much does a divorce cost, including division of a home that is paid for? Does any lawyers accept payment plans?
A: The cheapest route is if you and your spouse are in agreement with all the terms and can file an uncontested divorce. If you cannot come to an agreement on all the terms a contested divorce will need to be filed which is alot longer and more expensive. As for the cost, you would need to reach out to an attorney and get a quote as there are many factors that can affect how much an attorney will charge.
A: The cost of a divorce depends upon the amount of time it takes to divorce and the attorney's hourly rate. If you and your divorcing spouse agree on many things then the process will go more quickly and cost less. If you or your soon to be ex fight and cannot agree it will take longer and will cost more. Yes, some attorneys make arrangements for payment plans and in some cases you may be able to get the court to award attorney fees to you from your spouse.
