How much will divorce cost and how long will it take?
Without a doubt, these are the two questions most often asked from individuals curious about instituting a family related lawsuit. It’s completely understandable for these two questions to be at the forefront of one’s mind before undertaking to file for dissolution of marriage.
Unfortunately, the answer is “it depends.” If you’ve ever done a job for someone, you’ll understand. It’s impossible to know how much time and effort will go into a matter before sizing up the case and the client’s budget. However, we will do everything within our power will formulate a successful strategy within your budget.
With that said, a dissolution of marriage (divorce) that has to go to trial, that includes issues involving children, division of assets, and alimony can take as long as or longer than a year to complete. Again, it just depends.
However, we encourage clients to keep in mind the old maxim that you get what you pay for. After all, why hire a cheap lawyer if you won’t get what you want?
With all that said, every action we take is done to effectuate the goals of the client. The client’s goals are paramount to our strategy making and are constantly re-evaluated throughout the representation.
