Cost Of Divorce Attorneys Unaffordable For Many In Santa Clarita
It’s a fact. Many people cannot afford the cost of an attorney for their divorce. Either they don’t have the money or, if they do, are not willing to spend it to get divorced. That is where our divorce legal document assistance comes into play.
Here is an example of a client that, but for our service, would have been left to figure things out on his own.
A client was recently served with a Request For Order with the mom asking to move away with their child to another state. He called me to see what we could do for him. I advised him we would help him prepare a response to the motion along with a declaration, etc.
In his email to me, explaining what he wanted to address on the declaration, he asked me if I thought he would be okay representing himself. I answered him honestly. I told him that many people represent themselves. I told him that because the mom had an attorney, he may be at a disadvantage in his case.
Then I answered his question with a question. I asked him if he could afford to pay $5,000 to $7,500 for an attorney to prepare his response and represent him at the court hearing. He replied that he could not afford to pay that much money for an attorney.
And sometimes that is all it comes down to. Of course, everyone would love to use an attorney for their divorce case if it was affordable. But it isn’t. In fact, because attorneys are seeing less and less clients these days, they are actually raising their hourly billing rates to make more off the clients that they do have.
Yes, gone are the days of refinancing our homes to pay for everything. Cars, toys and even divorce. Now we feel the pain of that big purchase, going further into debt to pay for the things we don’t really need.
