What costs does one need to keep in mind when getting a divorce?

Legal costs, moving costs, utility deposits, costs involved in purchasing all the things you left behind – tools, linen, furniture, kitchen stuff, etc.  Divorce is expensive, you are breaking up one household into two.  Many things need to be duplicated.   

What is the average cost of divorce?  

You can get divorced for the cost of a filing fee (varies by state between $50 and $600 – Its $409 or $408 in Florida).  And this cost may be waived if you can prove you are indigent.  On the other hand, you could spend four-million dollars on attorneys, accountants, and experts. So there is no average. With that said, my guess is the average attorney-driven divorce costs between $4,000 and $15,000 per person – for a combined total of $8,000-$30,000.  And the average mediated divorce costs between $1000 and $5000 – total. But, that’s just a guess.
How much is a DIY divorce?  

In most states, you can get no-cost help for a DIY divorce in the courthouse, at a law school, or from legal aid.
