I started my divorce process two years ago with my lawyer. He told me if there are no complications it will cost me $1000 start to finish. When we went to court the first time my lawyer said that my wife got a lawyer as well and she is asking for money, which complicates everything so he asked for another $1500. Two years later we attended two times only in court and I finally got my divorce. My lawyer told to me to give him a call in 60 days and then he will get me the divorce papers. Instead I got a bill from his office saying that the final cost was $5000. Please help me...

For a contested case that's still really cheap, count yourself lucky.

You should have gone for an uncontested divorce. One of my friends lives in Florida, he went for an uncontested divorce only at $399. If you have kids, they charge only $799.
