It is difficult to determine how much an Orange County divorce will cost. The more issues there are and the more contentious the parties, the higher the attorney fees will be. A less expensive way to handle a divorce and still have a spouse’s rights addressed is to have both parties hire an attorney. Then the parties can settle the case by going through their respective attorneys. However, neither side can be forced to settle. If one side is not working towards an agreement, settlement is not an option.
There are several topics which usually make family law litigation more contentious. One topic is custody. A custody battle will require experts to testify. The expert is usually a psychologist that has spoken with both parents and the minor children. The expert will then make a finding as to what is the best situation for the minor children to thrive. The experts fees can be shared by both parties and are usually consistent with an attorney’s hourly rate.
