The least expensive way to obtain a divorce is for you and your spouse to agree to dissolve the marriage and enter in to an agreement as to the distribution of the assets and custody and visitation is applicable.  A good lawyer can help you with the negotiations. Lawyers fighting over your issues costs money.  The state guidelines will determine child support.  Good luck.
