As I mentioned in my previous post about collaborative divorce, the Boston Law Collaborative performed a study of 199 of their recent divorce cases. Mediation was by far the least expensive option, with a median cost of $6,600, compared to $19,723 for a collaborative divorce, $26,830 for settlements negotiated by rival lawyers, and $77,746 for full-scale litigation. Obviously, the cost of any single divorce is dependent on the specific circumstances and complexity of that divorce. But this gives a good approximation of the relative costs between the various divorce processes.
