  • For a contested one or not? Some cost more than others, and when kids are present it costs more. At least it did in '99 in Ky.

  • My divorce cost less than $200 and I didn't even go to court. We did it ourselves and had minimal costs of filing fees and a lawyer to look it over. It all worked out. Divorces can cost tens of thousands of dollars.

  • Call an attorney in your area and just ask. It depends on the state you live in and circumstances. You cannot (in most states) do it yourself if you own property or have children with your spouse. Uncontested is cheaper so if possible do a Parenting Plan with him and divide your assets before you go to a lawyer. You can use a Legal Aid lawyer if money is an issue.

  • I have no idea. I'm sure it differs. What lawyer you go to, what/who is all involved in the divorce and what area you're in.
