Calculating The True Cost Of Divorce
Emotional costs aside, there are two main costs or fees in a North Carolina divorce: court filing fees and attorneys fees. If a mediator is used to come to an agreement over any issue in your divorce such as child custody or visitation, property division or spousal support, payment for the mediator is usually in addition to any filing fees and attorney fees.
The length of a divorce can go a long way toward determining the overall cost. In general, an uncontested divorce that simply needs to be drawn up and signed off on by a judge will cost significantly less than a contested divorce where issues such as child custody and alimony are litigated in the courts. There are situations where litigation makes sense, so it’s important to speak to an experienced attorney who can help you determine when it is worth the cost to contest the major issues in your divorce.
