There are things through the divorce process that people can do on their own to make the process much more streamlined and cost effective. One of them being just information gathering making sure the attorney has all the financial documents in order, tax return, retirement account statements, bank account statements, credit card statements. The more you have to pay a lawyer or his staff to chase after those types of documents the more expensive it can become.

But by far the most important thing that one can do to keep cost under control is to be reasonable in terms of what their outcome-based perspective might be. People who have unreasonable perspectives as to their position on a case who won’t adhere to obvious guidelines along the way can result in a case taking on a life of its own and the litigating for years and years and years without a positive outcome.
