How Much Does a Divorce Cost?

Posted by Ahluwalia Law Professional Corporation | Jun 27, 2013 | 0 Comments

The cost of San Jose divorce can vary greatly.  Many factors affect the cost of a divorce, including whether you and your spouse agree on things, if you have children and whether or not one or both of you is planning on hiring a San Jose divorce attorney.

The more  you and your spouse disagree, the more likely you will both need a San Jose divorce attorney to represent your interests in court.  If you would like to consult a San Jose divorce attorney about your situation, please call divorce attorney Madan Ahluwahlia of Ahluwahlia law for legal assistance and a free consultation.

Factors that affect Divorce Cost

  • Type of divorce
  • Court filing fees
  • Attorney Involvement
  • Children
  • Length of the marriage
  • Extent of disagreement on divorce settlement

The cost of a San Jose divorce will range dramatically depending on your particular situation.  Childless couples who agree on everything and file the divorce without the help of an attorney can obtain a divorce for a few hundred dollars.  However, couples who have children, who disagree, or have complicated assets, mayraise the cost significantly.  A divorce  with high contention can cost between tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Filing a Divorce Petition

In order to start the process, either spouse may file for divorce in San Jose. All you have to do to initiate the process is file a Petition for Dissolution. This cost to file a petition for dissolution in San Jose is several hundred dollars.   Under San Jose family law, your divorce is not final until you receive a Judgment of Dissolution.

Why spend money to hire a San Jose Divorce attorney?

You should consider investing in an attorney if you want your divorce finalized quickly and to make sure your best interests are covered.  Because divorce orders regarding division of property and children are contentious and can have lasting consequences, you should contact a San Jose family law attorney.  Please contact divorce attorney Madan Ahluwalia of Ahluwalia Law to discuss your options by calling 1-866-666-4647 or filling out a form online today.
