On behalf of The Law Office of Gustavo E. Frances, P.A.

Some say it will never happen while others say it was inevitable. Divorce isn’t something married couples plan for in their future. Many do not stand and take vows in front of family, friends, and religious officiators thinking that divorce is the inevitable ending to their marriage. At the end of the day, couples break up for many reasons. Some are deeply personal while others are more superficial. Whatever your reason there are two things you need to know: 1) you should get an attorney who really knows the legal terrain of divorce and 2) it shouldn’t cost you a life’s worth of salary.

Our divorce attorney in Fort Lauderdale at The Law Office Of Gustavo E. Frances, P.A. is aware that a divorce is a major event in your life, but you shouldn’t have to pay for it for a lifetime. Divorces do not have to cost a proverbial arm and a leg. Here are a few tips on how you can get divorced on a budget:

  • Talk it out! Couples who are able to talk through big decisions like distributing assets or child custody are least likely to end up spending money in court waiting for a judge to decide. Talking through big problems helps cut your cost in court as well as time spent with your attorney.
  • Look for attorneys with free consultations like Fort Lauderdale divorce lawyer at The Law Office Of Gustavo E. Frances, P.A. We can help you start the initial process of your divorce for free which helps cut costs down the line.
  • Start making lists. Make lists of assets. Make lists of accounts. Make lists of dates and times of events. Making a list makes it easier for your attorney to understand your situation. Lists can also help you see things more objectively.
  • Try to leave emotions at the door. Our professional attorneys at The Law Office Of Gustavo E. Frances, P.A. understand that divorces are emotional. It is a huge curveball in how you envision your life. However, if you let your emotions get in the way of your decision making then you may not make any decisions. Without making decisions you are going to deal with more court time or time with an attorney. All that time means spending more money.

The final hint is to tell your attorney everything. It is important that you disclose as much information as possible. If you caught hiding accounts or assets then you can be penalized which means more court fees and more legal fees. Being honest and upfront with an attorney you can trust is vital to a cheap divorce.
