MYTH: It costs a fortune to get divorced
REALITY: The media inaccurately portrays the costs of divorce and in reality an ordinary divorce is nothing like the headline cases in the media. Divorce lawyers will continually encourage settlement out of Court in order to keep costs to a minimum for the parties involved. Parties can also represent themselves to further reduce costs, if they so wish, although this should be carefully considered as it can be stressful and overwhelming. If parties are amicable and can agree on the finances, then this will also significantly reduce the costs of a divorce.
