It is, of course, vital to find affordable divorce lawyers.Otherwise, you may be forced to your case half way when your money runs out.
To avoid running out of money half way, it is important to discuss the costing in advance, before engaging your lawyer.
All in quote / Full package cost
For simple cases, for example, a fully consented case (where your spouse will agree and cooperate and sign all the documents), you should ask for an, "All in quote" (or full package cost inclusive of all disbursements), which should include any and all disbursements.
Typically, disbursements refer to the amounts other than your lawyer's professional fees including those that have to be paid to other parties (i.e., parties other than yourself and your lawyer).For example, these can include court fees, oath fees, witness fees, stamp duties, photo stating fees, service fees, etc.
For more complex cases such as, for example, contested divorce cases, time-based fees may make more sense:
Here, if the parties are able to settle their case early, there could be a significant saving in terms of time and money.
Also, if there is no settlement and a significant amount of work needs to be done, you will pay according to the time-based fee.
Different people will find different comfort levels with different amounts and different ways of charging.
It is vital that you discuss the way of charging in advance and confirm that you are comfortable with it before engaging your lawyer.
