Keep Michigan divorce costs downEvery divorce attorney knows that money will be tight for many of their clients. It’s a reality that divorce can be a costly experience, literally and figuratively. You may think that you don’t have the resources to hire an attorney, but don’t sell yourself short. If you want to keep your divorce costs low, there are ways you can work with a Michigan divorce attorney without going bust, or getting raw deal in your divorce.

  1. Abandon the DIY Divorce Idea

Divorce is one situation where a do-it-yourself plan might sound like a great idea but, ultimately, will cost you more than just money. The complicated legalese that accompanies divorce can trip up any divorce DIYourselfers, leading to wasted time, costly mistakes, and, more often than not, the need to retain a divorce attorney anyway.

  1. Expand Your Divorce Team

It helps to have a divorce team on your side along with an experienced Michigan divorce attorney. A financial analyst can help you understand the most beneficial settlement for your present and future. A mental health therapist allows you to vent and cope with your divorce (and use your divorce attorney’s retainer for the most pressing legal issues).

  1. Outsource Your Divorce Dealings

Some people enlist the help of a divorce concierge to help them keep tabs on their legal bills and support them in their daily life as they go about the “part-time job” of getting a divorce. The divorce process is labor-intensive, no matter who you have working on your behalf. A divorce concierge will be part personal assistant, part moral support, part whatever you need to successfully navigate your divorce.

  1. Be Flexible

It’s important to be organized during your divorce, but it’s also important to be flexible – and that especially applies when it comes to negotiations. Every little thing isn’t worth fighting over. The more you object, the more work your Michigan divorce attorney will have to do. Refusing to negotiate or demanding to go to court over every little thing will cost you money. Being open to a give-and-take will serve you (and your retainer) better in the long run. It is possible to have an amicable divorce.

  1. Use Your Retainer Wisely

Most divorce attorneys ask for a retainer before starting on your case. Your attorney will draw on the retainer as the various tasks are carried out in your case, including everything from filing a motion to answering one of your emails or phone calls. Don’t be afraid to ask how your divorce attorney will charge you, when you can use a paralegal instead, what tasks you can complete on your own, or whether you can find the information you’re seeking on your own through an online search.

Be Logical About Your Divorce Choices

While it may seem like hiring a bigger divorce team or outsourcing responsibilities will end up costing you more money, what you’re doing is investing in yourself. You are working toward the most efficient and cost-effective divorce solution. Any experts who can get you there faster and smarter while aiding you and your Michigan divorce attorney in the process are invaluable. The sooner your divorce is settled, the sooner you can go about with your new financial life.

Just remember, your Michigan divorce attorney is your biggest advocate. If they can’t aid you themselves or assign a member of their team to support you, they will find a professional who can. Your happiness and satisfaction with the outcome of your divorce is their goal, and they have your best interests at heart. In short, your divorce attorney is on your side – and that’s the biggest kind of support you need during your divorce. And, if you choose the right attorney, he or she is worth every penny.
