Planning for the legal cost of divorce

The cost of legal fees incurred by our clients varies based on the complexity, urgency and time demands of the case. At Benmor Family Law Group, our hourly rates vary from $200 to $590 based on the levels of expertise of the professionals involved in each task. Every one of our clients want speedy, quality and expert-level legal assistance. We aim to keep our clients cost down by finding the most efficient process to help our clients.

Although the cost to finalize a divorce case is extremely difficult to predict due to its many variables, different client needs and the level of importance, complexity and urgency of each case, for the past 25 years, we have observed that there are 3 typical categories of cases:

(1) Simple & low conflict: In this category of cases, with the help of a family law specialist, the spouses are quickly able to agree on final terms of the settlement (which occurs in 25% of cases resulting in an approximate range of costs between $1,000 and $10,000)

(2) Complex & medium conflict: In this second category of cases, with the help of a family law specialist, the spouses are able to reach final terms of settlement after the issues have been the subject of negotiation or mediation - but not litigation (which occurs in 25% of cases resulting in an approximate range of costs between $10,000 and $25,000)

(3) Very complex & high conflict: In this third category of cases, the spouses are not able to reach a settlement through negotiation or mediation and are embroiled in litigation in the family court system (which occurs in 50% of cases resulting in a range of costs starting at $25,000 with an unknown limit).

The clients of Benmor Family Law Group are closely involved in their case and are regularly informed of their legal costs. We always aim to help our clients resolve their case quickly, inexpensively and responsibly.
