Is the $399 Divorce for Real?

Generally, it depends upon the following:
  • Kids. Count on them to increase the cost of divorce exponentially. The courts are adamant that provisions be made for the kids' care and protection. Usually this translates into child support. More time and thoroughness goes into negotiating issues of custody--physical and legal--as well as education and health care etc.
  • Property. The degree of wealth you and your spouse have: generally, the greater the assets, the higher the cost to divide them.
  • Acrimony. Your potential to save money in the divorce process corresponds at some level to you and your spouse's ability to communicate effectively. Begin with the fact that if communications were ideal, you wouldn't be divorcing in the first place, and then be aware of how anger, bitterness and resentment increase the need for buffers and referees in various arenas.
