How Much Does a Divorce Cost in New Jersey?
The real question for many people is, “What does a divorce cost?” In the state of New Jersey, I can tell you. It starts with an initial retainer of anywhere from $2,500 to $50,000 to $100,000. That’s just an initial retainer because you don’t know what the person has. If the person has a high net worth, the beginning retainer will be much more than it will or somebody who is working as a straight W2 and whose income level does not reach a certain point.
You still need an experienced New Jersey Divorce Lawyer. The attorney is going to go through your issues with you. For example, do you have children? Do you have assets? Do you have a house? Do you have a lot of personal property? Do you have items that you’ll need to do battle over, such as inheritance monies or lottery winnings? Different issues could come up in any case.
Children, of course, are a huge issue as far as custody and support. Really, the answer to the question about the amount of money you’ll have to spend on your divorce is very fact-specific. The more issues you have, the more money will be spent to resolve those issues. The more income and assets you have, the more money you’re going to spend on your lawyer’s efforts toward dividing those assets and those monies.
An experienced New Jersey Divorce Lawyer, however, is something that you must have. That individual can review your case, look at the facts, and then say to you, “Here’s what we want to do. Here’s the plan that we can use to get you up, get you in, and get you out of the divorce process.” The amount of money you’re going to spend is going to be part and parcel of what you want to accomplish and how you want to deal with it. Be reasonable. Cut your losses at all costs, and get out of the process as soon as possible.
