Divorce an Expensive Proposition for Couples

With the average cost for a divorce in New Jersey hovering at around $30,000.00, a new study has found that 15 percent of separated couples did not take the final step to end their marriage because of finances. Long-term separation can be an alternative to getting a divorce in some cases. When all else fails, mediation is the cheaper alternative to fighting it out in court. Divorce is a very expensive proposition, and while it can feel good to try to punish an ex by making things difficult, the only people who really win are the lawyers.
