How long & how much: Poughkeepsie Divorce Attorney Kevin MacKay
Over the course of decades, there is one question that every single Dutchess County client asks. How much will this cost & how long is it going to take. Like any good divorce attorney, the answer is it depends on the case.
All humor aside, the cost and time of a Poughkeepsie divorce depends on the complexity of issues, and the willingness of attorney’s to settle unresolved issues. The least expensive divorce I have ever handled was only “$500.00” in attorney’s fees and the attorneys were done in 2 weeks. Other divorces have taken years and 10’s of thousands of dollars. I pride myself in keeping my bills as low as possible. This is done by spending time to get to know my clients, the issues most important to them, and coming up with a strategy to achieve their goals early in the case.
I also make it a point to explain the costs of obtaining each goal. I use the analogy of the golden toaster. You can hire me to argue over a toaster oven but always keep in mind that for the cost of a attorney you could not have argued and bought a golden toaster oven. This story I tell to every client not because every goal they want to obtain is not important to me, but from the experience that a client obtain all their goals and end up with nothing.
How much & how long again depends how well we balance those goals to your financial advantage.
