Chennai Divorce: How Much It cost? And How Long Does It Take?

Most frequent question that a divorce lawyer encounters almost every day. Although, it is difficult to assess and estimate all of the fees that you will incur in a contested divorce proceeding at the time of filing the suit, it is relatively simpler to estimate fees for a mutual consent divorce. Average fees can range from 50K – 75K.

Unlike mutual consent divorce, contested divorce takes several hearings, sometimes, extending to more than five years. Hence, lawyers tend to charge an initial filing fee with expenses and clerical charges. Thereafter, fees will be paid at each stage. In addition, there will be a nominal fee for the appearance at each hearing called hearing fees.
