Other interesting statistics
Other statistics show that the average cost of a divorce is $50,000. Like any set of numbers, very expensive divorces can bring this average up and skew the numbers. This statistic is also a nationwide statistic and different jurisdictions may see wide fluctuations in this number. For example, I would estimate that the average cost of a divorce for a middle-class family in New Jersey is about $15,000 for each side. Of course, some case don't exceed $5,000 while others exceed $50,000.
