Divorce can cost anywhere from $500.00 to $25,000, depending on your situation. If you do not have kids, assets and it is a clean divorce, it will be on the lower end. If the divorce is nasty, you have assets and kids, if private investigators are involved, it would be very costly. The cost also depends on where you live. It is more expensive to get a divorce in New York, than it would be if you live in Louisiana.
