4 Ways to Keep Divorce Costs Low
One of the main concerns people usually have when it comes time to go through a divorce is how much the process will cost them. While the costs of divorce will naturally vary from case to case, there may be some things you can do to reign in the costs of your divorce and, in doing so, resolve your divorce more favorably and efficiently.
Here’s a look at some of the primary ways to keep the costs of divorce low.
- Proceed with an uncontested divorce – If you and your ex don’t have much to divide up and/or don’t have any children, an uncontested divorce may be right for you – and it can save you a lot of money. Be sure, however, to consult with an experienced Las Vegas divorce lawyer before moving forward just to ensure that you will not be giving up any important rights by proceeding with an uncontested divorce.
- Be open to compromise – Divorce can bring up a lot of intense emotions, sometimes fueling people with bitterness, anger, etc. This can lead to people being unwilling to compromise (sometimes even on issues they really don’t need to fight for). However, if keeping your divorce costs low is important to you, being open to compromise will be crucial, as it can help you resolve the issues of your divorce more quickly and, in turn, reduce the costs of the process.
- Try to resolve the divorce issues in mediation (rather than court) – With divorce mediation, divorcing parties may be able to work out the disputes in their divorce without the intervention of the court. When this is possible, the divorce can usually be wrapped up much more quickly and inexpensively than when the court needs to step in.
- Hire the RIGHT Lawyers – Although retaining an attorney will come with some upfront costs, in the long term, it can save you BIG time when it comes to the overall costs of your divorce. The reason for this is that, with one of our experienced Las Vegas divorce attorneys on your side, you can maintain a clear focus on what really matters in your divorce, fighting for the right issues (rather than getting caught up spending time and money on the wrong things).
