Process & Requirements

Starting the Process

First, determine the kind of divorce you might need. Will your divorce be a contested or an uncontested divorce? Next, will need to decide what type of representation you might need for your divorce filing. Will you need full representation, or do you need limited scope services?

Not every family law case needs to be a long, drawn-out matter, Sometimes, limited scope services are all that is needed to resolve the family law matter. Limited scope or “unbundled legal services” may be an affordable alternative to traditional representation. This model allows you to work with a professional who can provide legal advice, help you draft legal documents and other paperwork, and explain the process to you as you act as your own attorney. Naturally, you’d like to come to an agreement on which tasks you’ll perform, and which will be handled by the legal provider.

Limited scope services are ideal for people who can’t afford or do not want to allocate a large retainer for a family law matter. Limited scope services can also help you budget for a certain legal transaction that you need to have resolved or handled.
