51 - Who Pays the Costs of an Ontario Divorce?

One of the things people worry most about when separating is the cost of getting divorced. The cost of going to Family Court can be very high.  There can also be other expenses outside of court - fees charged by the Court, and fees charged by lawyers, accountants, mediators and other professionals.  When divorces get complicated and nasty, the fees can run hundreds of thousands of dollars. Separating spouses want to know what those costs are and which spouse will pay them. Often, separating spouses also want to know how to keep those costs down
