2 Facts About Divorce That Are Commonly Unknown
When a person decides to get divorced their are several factors that go into choosing their attorney. Below are two of the most frequently asked questions when starting the divorce process.
1.) The Cost of a Divorce
The cost of a divorce is going to vary depending upon whether it’s a complicated case and whether or not there are lots of issues. I like to offer people some flexibility in the payments. Many attorneys in my area don’t offer flat fees. I think that many divorces can be resolved quickly, and I offer some clients the ability to have a flat fee. What that does is allows you to have the confidence in knowing what the price is going to be. You don’t have to worry about unexpected fees and expenses, and you can call me anytime you want. You can reach out to me anytime you want. You don’t have to worry about running your bill up because you have a question. Some cases are inappropriate for a flat fee and we would need to do an hourly rate. Those cases are typically the more complicated cases that involve more issues and the time that I would need to dedicate to your case is unknown to some extent.
