What will my divorce cost?
Divorce involves many separate issues: child custody, child support, spousal support and/or alimony, and property distribution – also known as equitable distribution. It’s possible that emergency hearings and temporary restraining orders might be needed as well. Every divorce is different. Your divorce might not involve as much as another person’s. If that is the case, then it shouldn’t cost the same as a more complicated and difficult lawsuit. For the issues arising out of a separation and divorce, the experienced attorneys at Kurtz & Blum, PLLC will only bill you for the work they do based on what you need. It’s an hourly rate and you get monthly bills showing exactly what was done on your case and how much time it took.
Once all of your divorce-related issues are handled, either by court orders, mediated agreements or separation agreements and property settlements, the absolute divorce can sometimes be handled at a reduced, flat rate for an amount less than what it would cost hourly, depending on the procedures required by the county where the divorce is filed. Kurtz & Blum, PLLC offers a reduced, flat rate for several counties, including but not limited to Durham, Cumberland, Franklin and Wake Counties. Other counties may be hourly or flat. Call Kurtz & Blum, PLLC with your information, and our experienced attorneys and staff will help you with your questions and schedule a personal consultation.
