$ 1,000.00 if there are no children or property to divide, plus court costs of $379.00.  $500.00 plus court costs due at hiring.  $500.00 due immediately prior to filing for Judgment.  If children or property must be settled, $1,200.00.
This office can be retained for the following types of cases:
- Divorce (contested and uncontested)
- Custody/Visitation
- Child Support
- Orders of Protection (Family Offense Petitions in Family Court)

Where spouses disagree over any issue, court intervention is almost certainly going to be required, unless negotiation can result in an agreement.
