WHAT IS FAMILY LAW?
Family law involves legal issues pertaining to families, married couples, parents and children and includes joint divorces, contested divorces, guardianship, custody, paternity, adoption and more.
HOW CAN I SAVE MONEY ON MY FAMILY LAW CASE?
Most legal services are paid for with retainers, where you, the client, give your lawyer a large sum of money to be held in Trust. Your lawyer bills your retainer his/her hourly rate every time work is performed on your case, including brief e-mails and phone calls. When your retainer dwindles, you are required to feed your retainer with more money.
If you are paying your attorney via retainer, ask how much your case will cost and you'll hear "It depends."
A flat fee rate provides you transparency and financial security, because, from the beginning of the case, you know what your case will cost regardless of the amount of time your lawyer spends on your case.
Although the advantages of flat-fee rates are many, not every case qualifies. To determine whether your case qualifies for a flat-fee rate (and to unlock your rate) please take this short QUIZ:
