Lower Cost Alternatives to Divorce

Ventura Mediation Attorneys

Are you considering a divorce in the Ventura area? It is not always clear whether or not you should be getting a divorce. A divorce consists of many different factors, one of which is the cost of a full divorce. As Ventura divorce attorneys we are also aware that California can be one of the most expensive states in the country to receive a divorce. A California divorce can cost upwards of $15,000 when you are childless and can proceed to be upwards of $20,000 when children are involved.

One of the root causes of this is that divorce takes an extremely long time to complete because of the simple fact that two parties cannot come to an agreement on the terms of the divorce. In many cases the timeline for completing a divorce can be anywhere from close to a year to a year and a half. In this time frame one spends a lot of time and money going back and forth trying to find the perfect divorce agreement; however, there are alternatives.

Popular alternatives to divorce include:
