The Cost of a Custody Battle

I can finally kiss good-bye the stress and anxiety of the custody/visitation case.  But I still have a stack of bills to pay, so I won't be forgetting this experience anytime soon.  For those of you who are curious about the financial side of a custody/visitation case, below is a breakdown of everything this has cost me.

Lawyer fees:                          $3,422.83
Guardian Ad Litem Fees:          $445.00
Startup Fee with Safe House:      $15.00
TOTAL:                                 $3,912.83

*Also, a $10 parking ticket that I received when my parking meter ran out while I was waiting for W. to show up to court.  (Which he never did.)

**Also, some of my dignity.
