QUESTION: Who usually pays for an uncontested divorce; and does it make any difference who pays the attorney for their fee?
ANSWER: It doesn’t make any difference who talks to and pays an attorney first. The cost of divorce is often split between the spouses, but this is certainly something which can be negotiated. It’s common for the spouse with more money or assets to pay all or most of the cost.
