Take Control of Your Divorce

The cost of an uncontested, out-of-court Separation Agreement is normally unpredictable. Fees routinely range well beyond $15,000 per person.

Even if you avoid going to court, which is notoriously lengthy and expensive, there are risks to traditional Out-of-Court settlements.

These include:

  • If you do it yourself, you will almost certainly lack the full financial disclosures and legal expertise that are required to provide you with full protection.
  • Family lawyers charge by the hour and are trained in an adversarial system. Expenses mount unexpectedly when they quarrel and charge for each interaction.
  • The time frame is unpredictable when you hire lawyers or a mediator who do not communicate regularly with one another or interact smoothly.
  • Family lawyers are not financial specialists. You risk a settlement that doesn’t have the expertise to determine support obligations and equalization of assets accurately.
  • Many lawyers will need their retainers topped up several times during the course of finalizing a divorce. Clients are usually okay with this once or maybe twice, but as the costs escalate over time, there can be a loss of goodwill in the relationship.
