Family Law Consulting and Limited Scope Divorce

Consulting.

Sometimes, people have questions about Family Law procedures,  preparing documents or simply the meaning of certain terms. Even if you want to do as much as possible for yourself, you may have important questions you need answered. Plus, a very common situation is just wanting someone to look over your work to see if you missed something or worded something improperly.

We are happy to be hired to discuss Family Law issues, documents and solutions. We don’t have to be hired to take over a case. If you can handle a matter and want to, we can help your peace of mind by reviewing it.

In past reviews, we have found and explained problems about incomplete orders, timing and overlooked issues.  We are often able to suggest better ways of dealing with situations. In many cases, just explaining how the proposed order works and what different terms mean have made a tremendous difference for our consulting clients.

Important Note: We cannot meet with you to discuss your case if you are already represented by an attorney. If you are not represented, we are happy to help.
