According to an analysis published by the website 24/7 Wall St, the average cost of divorce in Florida with no children is around $13,500. The cost for a divorce in Florida is even higher if you do have children at approximately $20,300.

13.2 percent of Florida state’s population are divorced, according to 2018 data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The numbers are based on a study by Martindale Nolo Research in 2015, which calculated average divorce costs in each state. The costs ranged from $8,400 in Montana to $17,500 in California with Florida coming in 15th place.

Attorney fees make up the majority of divorce costs, the report states, but the total bill rises if assets need to be divided and children are involved. A great way to save money is to hire a divorce mediator instead.
