Average Cost of Divorce in Georgia
If you’re getting divorced in Georgia, you might be wondering what the cost of divorce is going to be. However, there is not a standard cost for divorce. Instead, the cost of divorce will vary depending on your unique situation. We can explain what the average cost for divorce is and what factors will affect that cost.
The average cost of divorce can be an average of $9,000 to $15,000 depending on your unique situation. There are factors that can make divorce more complex and more expensive. Seeking a healthy and nonconfrontational divorce can possible reduce the cost of divorce. The price will highly depend on what your divorce consists of.
Attorney fees will vary but you will need to pay for court filings, cost of copying and sharing documents, and compensation for witnesses and consultants, such as financial analysts and appraisers. Since there is no set fee on divorce, it’s best to speak with an attorney to obtain a more accurate estimate of what your divorce will cost.
What Factors Affect the Price of Divorce?
There are many different factors that contribute to the cost of divorce in Georgia. Some factors include whether you have children, whether you and your spouse can agree on various factors, and whether you need to divide large assets.
Getting Divorced With Children
The sensitive issues of child custody and child support are often the most emotional and difficult aspects of divorce. Having children can make divorce more complex because couples often get into custody battles to fight for more parenting time or more custody rights. Since tensions run at their highest when divorcing parents can’t agree on custody agreements, it can extend the divorce process. With negotiations and proceedings, it can quickly rise up the price of divorce.
Property Division & Divorce
Property division is another factor that can contribute to the costs of divorce. Property divided before the marriage or by gifted inheritance is considered separate property. However, any other assets are considered marital assets and they need to be divided fairly between both spouses. High-valued assets or business assets can make the divorce process lengthier and more complex.
Alimony & Divorce
Divorces that involve disputes over spousal support can also cost more than average. In most alimony disputes, spouses often disagree with home much the working spouse actually makes or how much the other spouse should be able to earn. It’s important to keep in mind that preparing for trial can increase your costs in a divorce.
Benefits of Obtaining Guidance During Divorce
Getting divorced is an overwhelming process—especially with the costs involved. Although the cost of divorce may go up with the most issues you have to address, it’s important to understand the benefits of having guidance during those challenging times. Not having an experienced attorney or consultant on your side can affect the outcome of your divorce. An experienced attorney can help you navigate through complex and emotional issues like child custody battles and property division. These factors will affect the rest of your life, so it’s important to take the right steps to get the best possible results for your case.
