Hi, got married in a registry office 36 years ago, the ceremony took 5 minutes, so far we have spent £85,000 and ongoing. I just feel that everyone from solicitors,barristers,mediators,pension experts, therapists, court costs, everyone is taking their bit from the honey pot and the pot for my future is getting smaller and smaller!
Mine cost above that, don''t go for spouse maintenance, as I was advised go for pension sharing or capitalisation so you never need to go through it again. Its hell to revisit and brings back all the hurt again, good luck and best wishes.
Wow 85k is a lot of money. The financial cost of divorce are really only governed by the depth of your pockets and how much how long you want to spend in courts etc.
If both parties can come to agreement on everything then its possible to do the whole job using a managed service for under 2k
