The cost of your divorce will depend on many factors, including whether there are issues in dispute between you and yoru spouse. Most attorneys will charge on an hourly basis, os the total amount of fees involved will depend on the hours invested. For simple cases that are entirely uncontested, some attorneys will charge you a flat rate for fees. Additionally, there are court costs involved - i.e., filing fees and the like. Consult with a few experienced attorneys in your are to get a better idea of the range what the total cost will be to you, based upon the specific facts of your situation. Many attorneys offer free initial consultations. And, avoid providing any personal information in online forums such as this.
Attorneys are not allowed to quote fees on this web site. What I encourage you to do is make appointments to speak with attorneys in your area. Many attorneys do not charge for initial consultations with prospective clients. Different attorneys charge different rates for their work. You may be surprised on how reasonable fees can be.
I agree with my colleagues. It depends on the specific facts of your case. Do you receive child support? Do you want child support? Do you have any assets? Contact a local attorney in the windy city to determine rates and the important factors in your case.

The length and cost to get divorced is pretty much entirely dependent on the parties themselves. Generally, the more amicable they are and the less fighting over the issues in the divorce, the quicker and less expensive it will be. On the flip side, the more contested it is with more issues, especially issues involving children and finances, the more work the attorney(s) will have to do, and that means the case will be longer and more costly.
That's really all anyone on this site can tell you with the information provided. If you called an attorney in your area for a consultation so you could go over the specifics of your case, you will have a much better idea of the length and cost of a divorce.
It is impossible to tell you what it will cost. It could be low, it could be high. There are far too many factors to consider. Meet with a few attorneys to get estimates based on your particular situation.
That depends on more factors. You should set up a consult with a lawyer to discuss the specifics and retainers. Many lawyers offer free consults.
All of the lawyers here are on the same page regarding the inability to determine the cost of a dissolution matter without a consultation. There are so many issues that can arise (personal property, real property, debt allocation, college education expense allocation, child support and visitation [not so much in your case], tax liabilities, possible sale or refinance of real property interests, and the like). What I can tell you is to try to agree on as many potential issues in your marriage as possible. This will go along way toward minimizing the number of contested matters brought before the judge.
