Every case is different and it is generally not possible to provide you with an estimate of the ultimate costs of your case. Some attorneys will charge on a “flat fee” basis, meaning that they will only charge you a pre-set amount regardless of the amount of work that is involved in the case. Such cases are often uncontested or involve less work or conflict.
Many attorneys charge on an hourly-rate basis, meaning that you are charged a specific amount for each hour of the work that the attorney actually performs. Generally, a case involving a higher level of conflict will cost more than a case involving a lower level of conflict. You will generally also have to pay for expenses associated with your legal action, for example, filing fees, messenger fees, transcription costs, photocopies, and postage.
In certain cases in Arizona the Court can order the other party to pay your legal fees at the end of the case, or, less commonly, during the case. That Order then becomes a judgment which you can use to collect reimbursement for your legal fees from the other party.
