Re: Lawyer consult fees
I don't know about the state you're in, but where I'm located, there's no need for a lawyer if you both can agree to the terms. There are sites online which give example forms, and they can sometimes be obtained at courthouse (clerk's office). Filing ourselves (I wrote up the document which he signed in front of a notary), our cost was just the filing fees ($146). This may or may not work for you, but it's worth exploring if the two of you can work out an amicable agreement.
