Factors Influencing the Price of a Separation Agreement in 2024

Below is a detailed breakdown of the potential separation agreement costs:

  • Legal Fees: Legal Cost are determined by the complexity of the agreement and the duration of negotiations. Obtaining quotes from multiple family lawyers to gauge the average cost is beneficial.

  • Mediation Fees: Costs depend on the mediator’s hourly rate and the length of sessions. Mediation can be a more cost-effective alternative to traditional legal proceedings.

  • Court Fees: Applicable if you are filing the agreement with the court.

  • Disbursements: Additional expenses, such as photocopying and courier fees, are also involved.
