A few ways to cut the cost of the divorce process

No matter how much spouses try to keep a marriage together, sometimes things just don’t work out. Divorce is often a stressful, challenging and expensive process to navigate. If there was ever a time to be frugal it’s during a divorce. For any person in Colorado who finds him or herself in this situation, here are a few ways to save money during the divorce process 

Take inventory of assets 

Create an accurate list of assets. This will help to reduce attorney fees by cutting down on the legwork and amount of time the divorce attorney spends searching for financial records and assets. Also, an accurate list of assets will make sure no properties in the other party’s possession are overlooked. 

Don’t vent to the attorney 

Although the attorney may be supportive, keep in mind that the relationship is not personal. It can be tempting to vent to the attorney about emotions or frustrations, but keep in mind any time spent talking to an attorney is billable. For personal issues related to the divorce, it is best to seek the services of a mental-health professional such as a counselor. 

While it may be difficult to do, it is sometimes helpful to reach out to the soon-to-be ex and seek mediation or a collaborative divorce process. If both parties are willing to cooperate and work together, they can greatly reduce the financial impact of the divorce. Any individual in Colorado who has questions or needs help with a divorce could benefit by speaking with a knowledgeable legal representative. An experienced family law attorney can answer difficult questions and provide the legal guidance needed to help individuals get through the divorce process as efficiently as possible.
