BOSTON (Reuters) - When my wife and I decided to get divorced, the last thing we wanted was a financial crisis.
We're divorced now, and the dust has settled. We had acrimony and some serious bouts of tension, but we didn't wreck each other's personal finances with out-of-control legal fees and other costs.
I spent about $1,500 on legal and mediation fees, and while my former wife spent more on our uncontested divorce, it still was a manageable amount.
