Questions About Divorce | How Long Will It Take?
A common question about divorce pertains to how long it can take start to finish. There is not a clear answer to this question because the length of a divorce can vary. It could be as short as two or three months or it could take up to two to three years. It all depends upon the complexity of your divorce, the issues that are present, and whether you and your spouse have the ability to come up with a quick resolution to those issues.
Questions About Divorce | How Much Will It Cost?
The cost of a divorce is going to vary depending upon whether it’s a complicated case and whether there are lots of issues. Your attorney can offer some flexibility in payments. Many other attorneys in New York don’t offer flat fees. There are many divorces that can be resolved quickly and having a flat fee can be a good option that an attorney can offer. What that does is, allows clients to have the confidence in knowing what the price is going to be. They would not have to worry about unexpected fees and expenses and can call their attorney anytime they want. It eliminates the concern of running up their bill because of a question they would like to have answered. Some cases are inappropriate for a flat fee and would need to do an hourly rate. Those cases are typically complicated cases that involve more issues that would possibly take longer to resolve.
