US News & World Report: How Much Divorce Attorney Fees Cost

As noted, they can be high. Demetria Graves, a certified family law specialist and managing partner of The Graves Law Firm in Los Angeles, says that if both spouses hire an attorney, costs can range from $2,500 to $50,000.

Assuming some smelling salts have now revived you, keep in mind that how much you spend on a divorce attorney depends, according to Graves, on whether you have a simple dissolution taking up about five hours of an attorney's time or a much more complex one, taking up around 20 hours. It also is based on what you'll pay to divorce in Los Angeles. If you live in a town with a lower cost of living, you'll pay less.

Generally, you pay these fees, according to Graves, on a retainer. She says: "If your matter exceeds the retainer, you are charged at the hourly rate of anywhere from $200 to $2,000 an hour."
