A: A typical divorce lawyer should cost $300-700 / hour.

You might be able to find a freshly licensed lawyer for a lower hourly rate.

Although you live paycheck to paycheck, you should expect to have to pay a lawyer to perform work for you.

If everything is agreed upon, as represented, a less experienced, less expensive lawyer should be able to handle your divorce for $5,000 or so.
