In an interview with the Shargh daily, Mohammadreza Alizadeh an Iranian lawyer explained that the so-called "divorce brokers are now charging between five million and 40 million toumans ($1.5K-13k dollars) to obtain a divorce for couples in the shortest period possible.
He added: "In the case of divorce where both sides are not amenable to the divorce, more time is required and divorce brokers charge higher prices. Also, if women are seeking the divorce, they have to pay more. In cases where both sides are agreeable to a divorce, brokers charge the least."
