Hired Divorce Attorney | Out Of Money | Divorce Not Finished | California Divorce
I want to talk about something we’re seeing happened more frequently in an ongoing basis than we have in times passed.
I don’t know what is causing this but we are getting a lot of calls where people who have hired an attorney spent all their money, have gone bankrupt.
I mean we’ve seen very severe cases and their Divorce is still not done. And we’re not talking about major cases.
We’re just talking about your everyday case where the parties are in disagreement. And they’re bills are running $20,000 $40,000, $60,000, $80,000 and they’ve run out of money.
They’ve tapped out all their credit cards. They’ve spent their 401Ks.
They have done everything to kind of fight the other party and their Divorce isn’t done.
And what bothers me is they’ve spent all these money on attorneys. As soon as you stop giving them additional retainers or paying the bill they will drop you.
And if you’ve been through that you know exactly what I’m talking about.
If you’re watching this and that hasn’t happened that is what’s going to happen. As soon as you stop paying they’re going to drop you.
And if your case isn’t done the problem with that is you’re probably getting into the point where you need to go to trial.
And trial in my opinion is where you need the attorney the most. That’s where they’re going to stand up, argue on your behalf and try and get you the things that you want.
All the paperwork and things that were done up to that point whether it’d be over period of months or years when you see go on for years all these money has been spent paying $300, $400 or $500 an hour.
What we suggest is if you are going to get a Divorce and you know you’re going to need an attorney try and save some of your money upfront by using our service to file court documents.
And I can give you a perfect example. We’ve had many clients who’ve come to us say, ‘Tim I know I need an attorney but I don’t want to spend $400 $500 an hour to have them prep documents and get the case filed.’
So what they’ve done is they’ve come to us. We’ve filed their case, done their financial disclosures.
We’ve filed motions. We set court dates. We responded to motions.
We did everything and then a few weeks off from any hearings that they’re going to that’s when you hire an attorney if that’s what you need to do or you can simply represent yourself.
We’ve had clients saved thousands and thousands of dollars.
The work we’ve performed would have cost them their entire $5,000 retainer up to what we’ve done.
And then now they can save that money and it could be spent better by the attorney appearing in court and arguing on their behalf.
That’s just my take on things.
Feel free to give me a call for a free phone consultation whether you are about to be dropped or you’re getting ready to file for Divorce give me a call so we can save you some money.
