Frequently Asked Questions
Do I really need a divorce lawyer?
While it is not required that you have a divorce attorney during your divorce, having a lawyer can prove invaluable. The outcome of a divorce can affect you and your children for the rest of your lives. A divorce attorney can work to ensure you achieve the best possible results.
How much does a divorce lawyer cost?
Having a divorce attorney like David Partovi on your side can be an incredible asset that can actually save you money over time by making sure arrangements like spousal support are fair. Attorney fees range from $5,000 to $20,000 on average, depending on the complexity of your case. We require a $5,000 retainer. Our consultations are free, and once you sit down and discuss your case, we will be able to give you a more accurate estimate of your costs.
How does a retainer work?
A retainer fee is a payment made to us in advance as a down payment on future services. This retainer stays at $5,000 throughout the process of your case. For instance, if $1,000 is spent on the client’s case in one month, we will ask the client to replenish the $1,000 to set us up for success the next month. At the end of your case, the remaining balance that was not used will be given back to you.
How long does a divorce take?
This varies with each case, but many divorces can take as long as a year. Straightforward, uncontested cases will move much faster than complex or contested cases. It is also important to remember that court schedules are based on availability. While you may have an uncontested divorce, your court date may be weeks in the future, depending on the judge's caseload.
What does "uncontested" mean?
"Uncontested" simply means both parties agree to the terms of the divorce and there are no disagreements with the terms. If one or both parties cannot agree, then it becomes a contested divorce that is likely to take longer. Family law attorney David Partovi can handle both uncontested and contested divorces to ensure your best interests are met.
My spouse committed adultery. Will this have any bearing on my divorce?
This depends on where you file. In Washington, it will have no influence on the outcome except in very rare cases, such as a spouse spending large amounts of money on a partner out of wedlock. If you choose to make these claims in court, they must be proven. David Partovi can help you gather pertinent evidence.
