This is the second most common question we get in our office on a daily basis, besides the question, “How long does a divorce take in Oklahoma?”
Isn’t This an Easy Question?
It seems like it this question should be easy to answer, right? Probably not if you have ever been through a divorce or if you are a lawyer because you understand that not all divorces are the same since people are different.
We have an ongoing discussion with other lawyers about the answer to this question. I always tell them the following story. I heard about a lawyer out of state and his answer:
What Kind of Case?
When a potential client calls and asks how much their case will cost this lawyer would say, “It will cost as much as a car.” This invariably produces a puzzled silence and then the caller asks, “As much as what kind of car?” He then says, “Well, that depends on what kind of divorce.”
What any divorce will cost depends on the year, make and model of the divorce. It depends on how well it drives, and it can depend on what extra efforts we have to expend to keep it rolling down the road. It also depends on the fees of the lawyer.
Open and Honest Fees
We keep it simple here. We don’t charge hourly fees. We charge a flat fee, which means we charge one amount for all of our services. We have been doing family law long enough to know what it will take to represent you in your case after we have had a chance to discuss it with you. We then make a promise up front about what it will cost, and then we stick to it.
