Aside from attorneys’ fees, what other costs or expenses may arise?
Any case that is filed with the court will usually require a filing fee, which ranges from $25 – $106 depending on the type of case. Additionally, there may be costs for process servers, court reporters, and couriers. These costs are typically not high, ranging from $20 – $300 per service. You may need to hire an expert witness, such as a real estate appraiser, vocational expert, mental health professional, or accountant. Those fees are usually higher, ranging from $1,000 – $10,000, again depending on the type of service that is provided and the scope of the expert’s work on your case.
