Frequently Asked Questions
Do I know exactly what I am being charged for?
Yes, we work on a flat fee, not a retainer, so you always know exactly how much it will cost.
Do I need an attorney?
No, you don’t. Our divorce consultation process gives you access to an attorney to give you legal guidance. The attorney is part of your advisory team, and does not represent you. This way, you do not have to disclose to your spouse that you are working with an attorney if you choose not to. If you wish to retain an attorney on your own, or work in conjunction with an attorney you have already retained, you may do so.
Do you do the court paperwork, or do I need to have it done elsewhere?
Yes, we handle all of the drafting, filing, and service of the necessary court paperwork. We can also do the required agreements and forms for retirement division.
Can you help me understand Child Custody and Support options?
Yes, if you have children you will have time included to meet with a Parenting Plan Coordinator to discuss different custody options, and how to make the transition as easy on your children as possible. You will also discuss support scenarios and options with the CDFA.
Will you help me create an offer to present to my spouse?
Yes. The divorce consultation service includes helping you to formulate an offer that works for you to send to your spouse. If accepted, the terms can be drafted into your Marital Settlement Agreement.
