The total cost, like the amount of time it may to take to complete your divorce, is difficult to predict for any Family Lawyer.
The nature and extent of the assets, the complexity of the legal issues, and the cooperation of the parties are significant factors.
Family & Divorce Lawyers, once you have agreed to engage their services will usually require an initial retainer deposit into a trust account before starting to represent you or commence work on your behalf.
Often, you are billed on an hourly basis against that retainer for legal services as they are rendered.
You should receive periodic statements advising you of the status of your account.
In the event your initial retainer is insufficient to cover legal fees and costs, you are expected to pay for services rendered to keep your account current.
If, at any time, you have a question about your bill, you should feel free to discuss it with your lawyer.
