How Much Will Divorce Cost, From Start to Finish?

Written by Russell Alexander ria@russellalexander.com / (905) 655-6335

Every family law matter is as unique as the parties themselves. This makes it very difficult to predict your total legal costs at the outset of your matter.

While prediction is difficult, some factors known to increase legal costs are, delaying or refusing to make proper financial disclosure to the opposing party, behaving unreasonably, excessive communication with your lawyer, bringing unnecessary motions, etc. Avoiding these billing pitfalls will help keep your legal costs down.
