Question Details:

I’m going through a divorce and we do not have much. Other than our 3 children we have a savings with a few thousand and we each have a 401k through work. We live in Milwaukee county and are trying to avoid extra costs if possible. I am keeping a detailed list of all finances and documents relating to the divorce so keep a handle on the costs. What are my options to keep the costs of divorce down?

Family Law Attorney Response:

Divorce can be costly especially when a couple is not communicating or an ex’s family decides to get involved negotiations. Where a divorce gets very expensive is when the two sides can not agree on property division and child custody and then emotions start to take over. To avoid high costs in a divorce it is best to try to be reasonable and treat your spouse with respect and understanding. If you can get on good talking terms and communicate with your spouse the costs of divorce will significantly decrease.

Overall a good experienced divorce lawyer will help you think objectively about your divorce settlement to avoid high costs. Some battles are not worth the costs of winning and a good attorney will inform you when you may spend $500 to fight for something that will not mean much to you in the end.
