LOS ANGELES "Big firms, with even bigger bills" is not an exaggeration."

Consider this quote from Los Superior Court, then-presiding family law judge, Aviva Bobb, from a bar association meeting in September 2002. "By the time we see [divorce] cases in court, most people have spent all their community assets on the divorce itself."

Also according to Presiding California Family Law Judge Marjorie Steinberg in the Los Angeles Times Magazine, May 4, 2008, if a couple can get a divorce for $100,000 in Los Angeles, Judge Steinberg considers that "pretty cheap."
