How complicated and expensive should I expect a divorce in

Customer Question

How complicated and expensive should I expect a divorce in my situation to be?
We were married in 1967 but have separated and not lived together for the past 7 years.
Five years ago she filed for a legal separation asking for unreasonable support but cancelled the motion citing "religious beliefs."
I had already surrendered all ownership in our house, car, rv, and personal possessions to her so there is no property to divide and all our children are in their 40's.
It clear that this marriage is over and I feel for no other reason that general principal that a divorce is in order. She has an uncontrollable temper that eroded away at our marriage, and she still battles regularly with our children, so I know I can't simply approach her with the proposition of a simple divorce.
She and I both currently work in Hospitality with similar incomes.
Should I go ahead and contact an attorney to file for a divorce, or should I just leave it alone until one of us passes on?
I'm 70, she's 68 and we're both in good health.
