Choosing Between Fixed Price vs. Hourly Price
Divorce lawyers in Kansas City typically cost between $200 to $500 an hour, or even up to $750 an hour depending on their experience. It may be beneficial to opt for a fixed price package to better control expenses and anticipate expenses more accurately. At Drama Free Divorce we offer fixed price divorce packages. In addition, we also offer financing options starting as low as $500 per month giving you the flexibility to pay for your divorce on your own terms.
Why doing it alone could actually cost more?
Avoiding legal representation during a divorce process has multiple risks. While saving some money by forgoing legal advice may seem appealing, not hiring one may end up costing more in terms of protection and representation needed. A good divorce attorney can provide legal advice as well as represent you in court proceedings to protect your rights and interests while helping negotiate the complex legal system on your behalf - while helping reach an amicable settlement between spouses with less stress and emotional turmoil during this process. Without one you could miss key deadlines or errors when filing legal documents - which could cost more money or cause permanent loss of rights - all without legal advice they could represent you against losing rights during negotiations or any future lawsuits brought on by either party's side - an attorney could protect both of which would otherwise likely cost much more.

How much should a divorce attorney cost?
The cost of hiring a divorce attorney varies widely depending on various factors. According to Martindale-Nolo Research's survey, the average hourly cost for legal assistance ranged between $250-$350 while some attorneys offer flat fees from $500-15,000 depending on the complexity of the case and experience of attorney. Some may even charge contingency fees which mean they only get paid if they win your case.
When is it appropriate to hire a divorce attorney?
After making your decision to file for divorce, it is advisable to seek legal advice as quickly as possible. Hiring an attorney early allows them more time to prepare your case and negotiate with your spouse's lawyer - something especially essential if there are significant assets or children involved; or there are disputes over property support or custody matters. Even if your divorce is amicable, having legal advice review any documents is always wise and can provide invaluable legal support and advice.
What criteria must I follow to select a good divorce lawyer?
Finding an experienced divorce lawyer may be challenging, so it is essential that various criteria be considered when selecting an attorney. Some key considerations for choosing an attorney include:
- Experience: When hiring an attorney to assist with family law and divorce cases, inquire as to their experience in handling such cases and inquire as to their success rate and length of practice.
