What does a divorce cost?

Most family law practitioners charge an hourly rate for the services they provide. The attorneys often request an advanced payment called a retainer fee which is held in escrow for the client to be used by the lawyer as the case progresses.

The attorneys’ fees are based upon a number of factors directly related to the complexity of the case. Massachusetts law now allows lawyers to unbundle their services and provide limited appearance representation for those parties who wish to hire a lawyer for a specific purpose to handle one or a limited number of pieces of their case.
