How much does an average lawyer cost for a divorce?
The cost of a divorce depends on many parameters and can vary in considerable proportions.
Here are the parameters that come into play:
The reputation of the lawyer: the more reputable the lawyer is, the higher his fees are likely to be high
The lawyer’s place of practice: a Parisian lawyer costs more than a provincial lawyer, on average
The complexity of the case
The diligences performed by the lawyer
The degree of conflict between the spouses: if the spouses do not agree, the procedure can drag on. This obviously raises the fees
If the couple decides to call a single lawyer, the fees are shared between them and therefore reduced by half
There are several types of divorce: mutual consent divorce costs less than contentious divorce
The price of a divorce can vary from a few hundred euros to more than 10,000 euros.
But on average, a divorce by mutual consent costs between 300 and 600 euros per spouse if the lawyer is common, or between 1000 and 1600 euros if each spouse has his own lawyer.
The litigation divorce costs him on average between 2500 and 3500 euros per husband.
