Katelyn Morgan


There is a wide range in the cost of hiring a divorce lawyer in Texas. It depends on their experience, where they are based, and how complicated your case is.

For the first meeting with most Texas divorce lawyers, you can plan to pay between $100 and $300.

Many lawyers offer free 30-minute chats where you can talk about your case and decide if they are a good fit for you.

It will usually cost more, though, if you want a more in-depth meeting where they really look at your case and make a formal plan.

If you live in Texas and want to get a divorce, you should know that the lawyer fee is just the beginning.

In the future, there may be more legal fees, especially if it gets harder to do things like split up land or decide who gets custody of the kids.

In Texas, most divorce lawyers will ask for a retainer fee up front. This fee can be anywhere from $2,000 to $10,000 or even more.

During the first meeting, clients should make sure to ask about all fees ahead of time.

This way, they can make a budget and find a divorce lawyer who works with their budget.
