Forsyth County Divorce Attorney - Cost of Divorce

Especially in today's challenging economy, many estranged couples find it difficult to move toward marital dissolution because of concerns about the costs of divorce. It is not uncommon for alienated spouses to live in different parts of a house that they cannot sell because they are upside down on the mortgage. They end up living in a type of legal and personal limbo, waiting for the economy to improve.

You and your spouse may have tried splitting up your marital home to live in, but find it uncomfortable to treat your former beloved life partner as a mere house mate. It is difficult to go on with your life after a marital breakup without completing a divorce. Prolonging a divorce because of cost considerations creates many hardships.

For these and other reasons, Thomas Knox & Associates makes a concerted effort to keep divorce affordable if at all possible. In addition to indirect costs of a divorce (such as moving costs or loss on hasty real estate sales), direct costs may include:

  • Court fees
  • Service of a petition to a spouse by a sheriff
  • Attorney fees
  • Fees for expert witnesses when child support or alimony is requested or when one spouse suspects that the other has hidden assets, such as offshore accounts
