Divorce Paralegal Services Plus Limited Scope Attorney Representation

Divorce Paralegal Services Plus Limited Scope Attorney Representation

We are very excited to announce that you can now use our divorce paralegal service in Santa Clarita and also receive limited scope attorney representation.

This is how it works. When you decide to use our divorce legal document preparation service, we will take care of all the paperwork related to your divorce. We will prepare, file and serve all documents and complete your divorce for you.

If, for some reason, you case has issues that end you up in court, we can refer you to a flat fee attorney service who represent you in your hearing.

Limited scope representation simply means that the attorney is representing you for a specific function and when that has ended, so does the representation.

Let me give you an example of how this would work. I have a client whose spouse filed a motion and there is an upcoming hearing. Husband came to me to assist in drafting his response and declaration.

He was feeling a little uneasy about representing himself in court because his wife had an attorney. But at the same time, he did not want to spend the $3,500 to be represented in court.

So he came to me and used our affordable document preparation service to draft his response and declaration saving him thousands of dollars. Then we referred him to a divorce attorney who was willing to represent him just at the hearing.

Essentially, he will only be paying the attorney for the hours he spends in court. This is a tremendous savings for him. Not only does he get expert divorce document preparation, but also receives attorney representation at his hearing.

Limited scope representation is not something new. However, attorneys don’t like to offer this service because there is more money to be made in full representation.

Please give us a call to learn more about how using our divorce paralegal service and a limited scope attorney service can help save you thousands of dollars on your divorce.

We are headquartered in Santa Clarita and specialize only on divorce and serve all of Los Angeles area courts.

The buzz on the street is that divorce attorneys are starting to see a lighter load of new clients these days. They are wondering what might be the cause.

I can think of 2 reasons. Cost and lack of need.

First, lets talk about cost. The cost of hiring a divorce attorneys continue to rise. With average divorce attorneys in Santa Clarita charging around $300 per hour and those that consider themselves top-shelf charging $500 per hour.

You’re A Fool If You Don’t Hire An Attorney – Santa Clarita Divorce

You’re A Fool If You Don’t Hire An Attorney – Santa Clarita Divorce

I have been doing a lot of reading lately and recently came upon an attorney marketing piece that stated that one of the top 5 mistakes you can make during your divorce is failing to hire an attorney.

He even went as far as to say “represent yourself and you have a fool for a client” referencing an old saying.

The reasons provided was because of the highly emotional nature of divorce and that you don’t know how the court process works and don’t understand what to do in a court hearing or how evidence works which will harm your ability to come out on top during your divorce.

This may be true if you have a contested case and end up in court in front off a judge. But statistics tell us that if you actually go to trial during your divorce, you are the minority of cases.

In uncontested divorce cases, none of this applies. So you would not be a fool to represent yourself if your not going to court. You would actually be much the opposite.

I think you are smart if you decide to represent yourself during divorce. I think you would be even smarter if you hires our divorce document preparation firm to complete your divorce and help you through the process.

I agree that you should get a consultation with an attorney if you have legal questions. We are the first people to say you should speak to an attorney on a consultation basis only if you have legal type questions.

But outside of needing legal advice and representation in court, we an assist you in the divorce process, explain procedure and handle all the paperwork.

Give us a call today and speak directly to our legal document assistants so we can explain how we will help you get through your divorce. And we promise not to call you a fool.
