The Cost of Divorce Always Varies

In 2008, in a study published by David Hoffman the University of Missouri-Columbia School of Law's Journal of Dispute Resolution showed that there is a drastic difference between the cost of mediation and a contested divorce.

During the study, Hoffman reviewed while the family with a median net worth of $2 million. He found that the combined cost for both parties for legal fees as well as mediation fees was around $15,000. However, when cases where litigated, the median cost shot to over $155,000 whereas the combined cost for both parties in collaborative divorces was just over $39,000.

Truthfully, the final cost of your divorce will be up to you and your spouse. You can choose to work together, use a divorce mediator to settle things outside of court or choose to go to court and let a judge resolved your conflicts. Each scenario will involve differing costs.
