If you’re thinking about filing for a divorce, you may be wondering what kind of costs you may incur. Attorneys’ fees vary based on the complexity of your case and whether the divorce will be uncontested or contested. At the Law Offices of Randy S. Margulis & Associates, we strive to make the process as cost-effective for my clients as possible. We realize that the happier our clients are with our services, the better it is for both of us.
In addition to providing professional, quality service, we also make it our goal to contain client costs as much as possible. Not all divorce cases necessarily cost a fortune. It depends on the nature and extent of issues in the case that will need to be resolved; such as whether there are children, whether custody is contested, and the extent of economic or financial issues. A retainer fee is charged at the beginning of each divorce case, the amount of which depends on your particular circumstances. State law requires that we execute a written Retainer Agreement, that spells out specifically what you are paying for, and at what rate. Retainers must be refundable under appropriate circumstances. Feel free to contact our office today to find out more about this process.
There are a number of mandatory fees that must be paid to the County Clerk upon commencement of a divorce case, and some additional fees which must be paid along the way. These fees are typically collected from our clients at the beginning of the case, in addition to the Retainer payment. With these fees usually come a variety of forms and sometimes complicated paperwork to complete. At The Law Offices of Randy S. Margulis & Associates, we handle all of this for our clients, and do our best to make a complicated process easy to navigate through.
