Divorce can not only be an emotionally difficult time, but can also be quite expensive, but it doesn’t have to be. Their are ways you and your soon-to-be former spouse can work together to keep the costs associated with your divorce to a minimum, while still receiving expert council from an experienced divorce attorney.
The amount of conflict during the divorce will end up being directly proportional to the amount of money spent on your divorce. Negotiating all matters fully, and agreeing to the division of marital property, alimony, child custody, and child support beforehand will go a long way towards keeping your divorce costs at a minimum.
Be on the lookout for adversarial attorneys who are more interested in creating conflict than settling it. Remember, attorneys generally charge by the hour. The more time spent in conflict is the more money spent on the divorce.
If you have very complex financial matters to settle, it may help you to jointly hire a financial advisor or a CPA, to help sort out whatever tax implications may come up after the divorce.
Keep a level head! It’s a difficult time no question, but maintaining your composure and not letting your emotions get in the way of negotiating a fair settlement for you both will go a long way towards keeping the costs associated with your divorce reasonable.
