Answer

The cost of a divorce is highly dependent on whether or not any of the issues in your case can be resolved by agreement or if a judge will need to be involved to make orders. Contentious cases or those with complex assets, including self-employment or real estate, typically require additional time and funds to complete. Further, cases, where child custody or visitation is at issue, can result in multiple court hearings or the need to hire an expert. Contreras Law Firm can provide an estimated budget for our clients allowing them to see the big picture as well as aid in choosing which strategy to pursue.
