Costs Involved in Divorce in Bergen County, NJ

Get Answers from Experienced Attorneys

If you want to know how much your divorce will cost you, there is no straightforward answer. It will depend on a number of factors, such as how contentious the situation is between you and your spouse. Other factors that will affect the cost may include how many times you have to go to court, the degree of conflict, if there are any potential child custody disputes, and whether any particular complex legal issues are present. At Sherwood & Johnson, LLC, our Bergen County divorce attorneys aim to keep you informed regarding all facets of a divorce, including the costs involved.

Divorce Lawyers in NJ Cost

Many believe that it is cheaper to file pro se, instead of retaining the services of an attorney. However, there are filing fees and court costs associated with filing pro se that could end up costing you more in the long run.

Some costs you should consider include:

  • The filing fee for divorce in New Jersey is $300.00. If you have to file any motions (applications requesting relief), you will be charged an additional $50.00 per motion.
  • There are other expenses: service of process, subpoenas, depositions, trial preparation, and costs associated with the retention and potential testimony of expert witnesses.

How to Manage the Costs in Divorce

It is important that you approach your divorce in a business-like manner. The sooner you are able to come up with satisfactory solutions for dividing assets, paying support (if necessary), and implementing a good parenting plan, the more peaceful and less costly your divorce proceeding will be.

While many individuals will try to cut costs by not securing legal representation, this is ill-advised. With such important things on the line as your children's future and your economic stability, it is imperative that you ensure your best interests are represented.
