Do-it-yourself divorces can be done for little or no money beyond the court filing fees. Obtaining the advice of an attorney for your "do it yourself" divorce may cost from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars. A contested divorce with disagreement regarding child or property issues can cost tens of thousands of dollars. Extreme contested cases, especially for high net worth individuals who are dividing a large estate, can cost a hundred thousand dollars or more. To the extent you and your spouse can sit down and agree to the terms of your divorce, you will save yourself time, money and aggravation.
