How Much Does a Divorce Cost in Texas?


Most reputable family law attorneys require a retainer to be paid up front before providing legal services.  A retainer fee is an advance payment for future services to be rendered, similar to a down payment that will cover the initial expenses of starting the work.  The retainer fee is placed in a trust account, and each month, the trust account is deducted based on the work that is being done in the case.  Once the retainer fee is depleted, you will be required to replenish in order for work to continue.  You should make sure that you understand your financial obligations in full detail under the legal service agreement.

How much a divorce costs varies on a case-by-case basis.  Divorce attorneys generally charge fees based on the amount of time spent working on your case and actual costs, such as filing fees.  Generally, based on experience, a divorce attorney’s billable rate is the amount of money that he or she charges per hour.
