Divorce costs can range from several hundred dollars in filing fees to upwards of $15,000 or more. No two cases are alike, and it is difficult for divorce attorneys to offer a flat rate for services.
The average hourly fee charged by Florida divorce lawyers is $260 per hour and most attorneys base their fees on an hourly rate. The amount of time a legal team spends on your case will determine the total cost for the divorce.
Additionally, you will pay for expenses including fees for court filings, mediation, copying and serving documents, compensation for expert witnesses, child custody evaluators, appraisers and/or financial analysts that are consulted in your case.
A divorce where the spouses can agree on the major issues will cost much less than average. In contrast, a divorce case involving heated arguments and allegations that must be validated will cost significantly more than average. As a rule, it is best to use mediation in your divorce case in order to avoid a lengthy trial and excess time spent in court.
