An average uncontested divorce will cost approximately $1000 USD. If the uncontested divorce involves child custody, division of property, or other issues to consider, the average cost will be $1500 USD.
The first document processed will be 5000 YEN. For each additional document, 4000 YEN will be charged and for each translation after your initial contact with Okinawa Divorce if you require further services.
*State law excerpts are 20 YEN per word since these documents vary in density.
Okinawa Divorce Interpreters:
30 minutes = 5000 YEN
45 minutes = 7500 YEN
1 hour = 10 000 YEN
Okinawa Family Court Appointed Interpreters:
1 hour = 20 000 YEN
To calculate the approximate cost of your divorce, simply add up your necessary documents, court fees, postage stamps, application stamps, and interpreter hours.
2 x birth certificates = 9000 YEN
2 x state law excerpts (572 words x 20 YEN) + (833 words x 20 YEN) = 28 100 YEN
3 x divorce application pages = 12 000 YEN
Court fees = 1200 YEN
Postage Fees = 920 YEN
Okinawa Divorce Interpreter x 1 hour = 10 000 YEN
2 x Family Court appointed interpreters (one for each party) x 1 hour = 40 000 YEN
1 x Divorce Decree translation = 4000 YEN
GRAND TOTAL = 105 220 YEN = $1032 USD (depending on current exchange rate)
* If the divorce involves further documentation, such as child custody and property distribution, total costs can increase by an additional 10 000 to 15 000 YEN per subject.
