I was told that Divorce in DR would cost at least up to $600. I am married for 12 years and I'm filing for a divorce and am curious what would be the actual cost if anyone know? I also have a 8 year old daughter and she will be US citizen shortly.

Thanks

It will all depend on the lawyer you use, how complicated it is, and whether or not it is contested. I think $800 would be closer to bare minimum. Best to consult a lawyer and get a quote.

If you and your spouse are in agreement than yes about $800-$1000.00. Most of that is for the paperwork. If there are other "issues" then of course the price will vary. Consult a lawyer and if possible, speak to your spouse. A mutual consent divorce is so much easier.

To be honest , I am a firm believer in the institution of marriage inspite of my own failed attempt at it.
Looking at myself honestly I realize that marriage in and of itself is not the problem but rather the people who decide to jump into it and the unrealistic expectations they bring in thier mental suitcases.
Wiith a divorce rate as high as 80 percent after only the first year there has got to be some attraction to the marital prospect even if its fatal lol..

Eienstien said it well
" " Enter into marriage with eyes wide open and continue with them half shut ".

We blindly enter into a lifetime commitment letting our eyes and emotions direct the sails of our heart but when the honeymoon is over and we realize that marriage is actually hard work and not a. store bought canned emotion that requires self sacrifice and major adjustment our love boat sinks faster than the titanic .

In case anyone missed it, the OP asked about the actual cost of divorce. Just a reminder.
I remember that Lindsay/Matilda did uncomplicated divorces for $800-1000 USD through her website DRSISTERHOOD. Just as a price comparison, of course.

I paid U$ 2,000 GO Guzman firm back in 2009 ( or around ) ; I wasn't in DR, it wasn't contested etc etc ; I had one meeting at their office in Sosua, I paid half, then I paid the other half when I picked up the final divorce.
