Common divorce questions have varying answers

Every divorce case is unique. If you're heading toward divorce, this is a crucial thing to remember. Your case is not exactly like anyone else's case, and there's no guarantee it will play out the same way.

This is why it's often hard to answer some of the most common divorce questions that people ask. There just are no blanket answers. For instance, two of the most common questions are:

  • How long does the entire divorce process take?
  • What is the total cost of splitting up?

Why people want these answers is understandable. They're trying to plan for the future. Will they spend a few days working on a divorce that costs a few thousand dollars, or are they looking at tens of thousands of dollars and months in court? You want to know before you begin.

The answer, though, is that it could be either. It depends on many things. Are you and your spouse on relatively good terms? That can speed things up and reduce costs because you'll agree on key points instead of fighting over them in court. Are there kids involved or is this a high asset divorce? Those things can slow the process down because there are so many more details involved and both kids and wealth are things that often lead to disagreements.

The key, then, is to really take stock of your own position. Take the time to look into all of your legal options and consider the divorce from all sides. The answers vary from case to case, so fully understanding the law and your case is absolutely critical.
