If you earn more money than your spouse, you may end up paying their court costs and legal fees as part of a final settlement.
There are ways to minimize this expense, or avoid it altogether, but the best approach for people who earn the majority of a household’s money is to work with experienced divorce attorneys who can help you develop a strategy to reduce the cost, while arguing in court against having to pay them entirely.
For many couples, divorce has a strong cost-benefit quality to it, and a consultation with a divorce lawyer can help you determine what the costs might be.
At Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino, we provide free consultations for people considering divorce that are designed to help them understand their options so they can make a fully informed decision.
