If you are in a family law dispute and are dealing with it on your own, we can help you. Limited scope lawyers or unbundled lawyers are lawyers who provide pay-as-you-go family law services. We can give you as much or as little legal help as you wish. We can coach you on how to navigate the court system, help you fill in forms and explain what you need to do. You keep control of your case; we just point you in the right direction. We are on your side, but in the background.
It’s a fixed fee service with no strings attached. This service gives you low-cost guidance on what forms to fill in, what to put in your documents and how best to navigate your case. We also answer the basics of how the child support laws apply to you (along with your assets and any other issues). Statistics show that with no legal help, you may be worse off in the legal system and lose your case. Not a good direction for you.

Family law is very complex. If you can, it is extremely important that you hire a lawyer to ensure that your rights are protected. If you can’t hire a lawyer for your entire trial, you should consider consulting a lawyer for specific issues.
Despite [people’s] prior education and knowledge, they still find the [family law] system difficult to understand, and far more intellectually and practically challenging than they had initially expected.
