Family law legal fees always vary because each family law case is different. But there are some standard things associated with family law cases that can give you an idea of the fees involved. Family law cases are very complex to begin with and many factors will play into the family law legal fees.
Not all family law cases are clear cut, just like not all family law cases require going to court. Sometimes settlements can be reached in family law cases outside of court, and this can and will save all the parties involved money as going to family law court can become quite expensive.
If mediation is a solution, all parties involved must agree to be involved in mediation. Court is the only process you can drag someone else into in the event they are being difficult to settle with outside of court. Because of this and also all the procedural safeguards in place, going to court is almost guaranteed to cost you much more.
But sometimes going to court may be the only option especially if a threat of some sort exists. If you feel your children may be in harms way or monies may be hidden, court may be your only option.
