Divorce Payment Plans

There are two types of divorce: contested & uncontested.  Uncontested is easy.  We will break the fees up over the phases of your case.  You can file right away, however, your case proceeds based on your payment plan.

In a contested divorce, you are required to deposit a “retainer”amount depending on the complication and level of dispute.  You can fund paying this “retainer” at your leisure.  The case, however, will not proceed until the agreed retainer is reached.

A Final Word On The Stress of Paying Attorney Fees

We know paying attorney fees to have a lawyer assist you with a legal matter is stressful.  However, here is the reality.

  1. Most divorcing clients are paying high attorney costs because they have allowed their relationship to get more heated as the delayed in taking action.  More fighting means more attorney fees.  Act today.
  2. Stressing over money causes delay. Financial distress is also the number one cause of failed relationships.
  3. A stress-free life truly doesn’t start again until you get your legal matter behind you.  Make getting it done a priority.
  4. Most people filing divorce just want out.  This is a very expensive mind-set.  They think they are being the bigger person.  However, I have seen clients that would have avoided bankruptcy had they had a divorce attorney to represent them.  The reverse is also true.  Had people eliminated the debt earlier their relationship might have been salvages.  Financial stress is the number one reason given for divorce.
