As an experienced New Jersey Divorce Attorney, one of the first questions clients ask me is “Well, how much is this going to cost me?”
The cost of divorce in New Jersey varies, so it is almost impossible to provide an exact price, unless the divorce is uncontested and there are no assets, no children, and no issues.
A divorce with high assets, home ownership, or children doesn’t necessarily have to be expensive if the parties can come to an agreement in the beginning stages, or even before they get divorced.
The cost of an uncontested divorce in New Jersey will typically start around $1,500.00, plus the filing fee.
If the divorce is contested and there are assets and issues such as custody and child support, the initial retainer could range from $3,500.00 to $5,000.00, or more depending on the particular circumstances.
