How Much Will Your Divorce Cost?

At the Media law firm of Louis Wm. Martini, Jr., P.C., we know that the bottom line is important to you. If you're considering divorce, you naturally want to understand the impact it will have on your bank account and your financial future.

While we can't give you an exact number, we can help you gain a better understanding of the factors that will affect the overall price of your divorce. Here are four important points to note:

1. The route you choose to take will affect the cost. Deciding to litigate instead of negotiate is likely to make your divorce far more expensive. If you're looking for an economical option that keeps you in control of the outcome, negotiation or mediation is the best choice.

2. Your spouse's attitude and actions may also affect the cost. Sometimes a bitter or vengeful spouse will attempt to sabotage the legal process simply out of spite. He or she may claim that you were abusive, or that you alienated the children, or that you hid marital assets — simply to hurt you or gain the upper hand. This can result in contentious, expensive court battles.

3. Our mission is to attain your goals cost-effectively. Clients appreciate the fact that attorney Louis Martini fights vigorously and passionately for them, but he does so while attempting to resolve the matter as cost-effectively as possible. Your financial stability is important, and we never lose sight of this.

4. You can get an estimate during a free, no-obligation consultation. During your first meeting with our lawyer, he will take all your information into consideration and quote you an hourly rate based on a sliding scale. Then, he will estimate how many hours it will take him to accomplish your goals. This will give you a basic idea of how much your divorce is likely to cost.

Because the initial consultation is absolutely free and comes with no obligation to retain us, we encourage you to set up your appointment today. Call our Pennsylvania law firm at 610-492-7122 or contact us online.
