In a recent study the average cost of legal advice for a divorce in Israel ranged from 20,000 to 160,000 NIS for each side. This does not include numerous court appearance fees where the lawyers battle it out in front of the judge.
In contrast, mediation offers a much more affordable option. In addition to the mediator's fees, a lawyer would be employed to draft the final agreement and file the agreement in court. The average fee for a mediation is 5,000 nis to 10,000 nis which is split between the parties. In complex situations there may also be fees for reports from accountants and psychologists or other professionals.
