How Much is Divorce Going to Cost Me?

When making big decisions about anything there are few standard questions to ask: Is this really what I want? Am I going to be want this 5 years from now? and How much is this going to cost? Choosing to separate from a marriage, regardless of how long you and your partner have been together, is not a quick decision. A lot of time and thought went into the decision and our Divorce Attorneys at the Ault Firm in Salt Lake City intend to respect that decisions. We respect the decision by respecting you and your wallet.

Divorce can cost from several thousands to hundreds of thousands. There are many factors to consider when trying to figure out how much everything is going to cost. First, you want to consider the professional you choose to represent you. Our Divorce Attorneys at The Ault Firm work from personal experience and represent you with empathy and diligence. We know how it feels to go through divorce and we intend to get your through it emotionally and legally at a low cost. Second, there are different costs depending on state and/or county. In Utah, at the least you will pay $310 for a filing fee. This does not include other filling fees due to complexities of your divorce. Other fees come from not filing correctly or forgetting to include materials. This is why it is important to have an attorney by your side to help you keep track of all filing and ensuring that they are all filled in correctly.

Third, you must consider the complexities of your case. If you have been married for more than 10 years then your spouse may have access to your social security when you retire. Do you and your spouse have children? Figuring out child custody and visitation rights is separate to a divorce. Those are issues that require much dialogue between the partners in order to find a solution. Last, you want to consider the level of conflict between you and your spouse. How well have you discussed this divorce? How well are you or your spouse up to the emotional hard work for separating assets and accounts without hurting each other? Are you and your spouse ready to talk about who gets the kids? These are serious questions to consider because the longer you and your spouse fight over an issue, the more contested the divorce becomes; therefore, the more money you will have to pay in fees.
