- How DIY kits may be useful
- How attorneys can help supplement DIY kits
Do-It-Yourself (DIY) kits are designed to allow us to offer legal services for every budget. We believe that just because your finances will not allow you to hire a full-service attorney that does not mean that you are not entitled to a competent and experienced attorney to assist you with your legal problems. We offer four different options for attorney assistance to meet each individual where they are at and where their budget is comfortable. The first option is a complete do-it-yourself option. This option is the least expensive, but it does not disappoint in value. For example, our do-it-yourself divorce package offers detailed step-by-step guidance to make sure you can handle every step of filing your divorce, including how and when to serve the defendant. The package also includes a free one-hour consultation with a Paralegal to answer any how-to questions you might have and a 30-minute attorney consultation to ask licensed attorney specific questions regarding your particular case.
Our second option is the attorney document preparation. This is a good option for people who need a divorce and who do not want to mess with the hassle of completing often complicated forms yet cannot afford the formal representation of full attorney representation. With this option, we will complete all of the forms in the how-to kit and have them neatly organized so that you will know exactly what to do in the next steps. We will make all the necessary copies, notarize any documents that are needed, and additionally this also comes with a free one-hour attorney consultation.
The third option is divorce mediation. In this option, an attorney will meet with the parties to identify the issues and find out where there may be a breakdown in terms of an agreement. Our office allows us to meet with each person in their own conference room to allow for important conversations that are better handled one-on-one and come together to handle the final details of complex plans.
Then obviously, our final option is full attorney representation. We will meet with clients during the free initial consultation, discuss their case specifics, and create a road map of strategies to effectively and efficiently represent them for their most favorable outcome.
