A common question from people considering divorce is how much getting divorce costs. The answer depends on several variables. Aside from attorney's fees, there are court costs and filing fees to file an initial petition for divorce and other pleadings. Also, there's a cost for using a process server to give notice to the responding spouse. Other fees may include court-ordered services such as parenting classes, mediator fees, or social-study fees.

Attorney's fees are usually more than court costs and filing fees. Because most attorneys charge by the hour, the cost of the divorce depends on how much time and work the attorney has to spend on the case. In highly contested and disputed cases, attorney's fees are typically very high because the attorney has to spend lots of time advocating for the client. On the other hand, if the parties work mainly by agreement with little work required from the attorney, the cost is much lower. Essentially the cost of attorney's fees for your divorce will depend on how much you and your spouse want to fight with the assistance of legal counsel.
