Dan Ryan - Family Law in La Crosse, WI



The first question most clients ask their lawyer is how much a divorce will cost.  We do our best to answer this question after talking to you, but in the end, we cannot tell you an exact amount.  The total cost of the divorce is impossible to determine at the beginning of a case.  You can control how you approach the case, but you cannot control how your spouse approaches it.  While you may want to simply get the divorce over with, your spouse may not be so willing to compromise.  In these circumstances, we need to defend your rights, and the cost of the divorce will increase.  We understand that most of our clients are not independently wealthy.  For the most part, they do not have endless amounts of money to spend on legal fees.  We are always willing to answer questions about your bill to make sure you understand it.  Take a look at our sample fee agreement for more information about our billing procedures and hourly rates.
