Question by ♥ Ruby ♥: what is the cost of a divorce in california?
Is it necessary to pay 3k to an attorney for a divorce? there is no personal property or assets to split up. Just 2 children and no custody battle or child support disagreements.

If I do the footwork and my own paperwork, what should I reasonably expect to pay to get divorced?

divorce mediation is the best and cheapest way to go. i hope you both can stay civil through out the divorce and have free access to your children... sounds like it. good for you.

    Everything can be done using a Certified Mediator, than filed pro se. However, you want to make sure everything is covered. Who gets the kids in the event of the death of the custodial parent? Not the other parent unless it is expressed in the order. What type of access orders are you planing, or are you considering joint physical custody? Have you considered Bird Nest Custody. These links will help in your preparations.
