Confidential. No Obligation.
I will always be grateful to my provider attorney. Thanks to his dedication, determination and professionalism, I now have custody and legal rights over my daughter's well-being.
I have received more support from my provider attorney than I have from our system here in Mobile in about 3 years. I appreciate all that has been done for me. Thank you all.
What a unique and creative way to work with an attorney. I was expecting to spend a few thousand dollars, but instead I got the paperwork I needed done for a few hundred and handled the rest myself.
Family Law - Get the Help You Need to Defend Your Legal Rights
Whether you are faced with a pending divorce or need help in resolving a child custody or visitation rights issue, the legal challenges you face can seem overwhelming. Family law issues directly impact the most intimate relationships and it is our goal is to provide you immediate access to the legal assistance you need to make the right decisions for your future and your family.
What Does Family Law Involve?
Explained most simply, family law involves legal matters that impact families. It includes the legal situations that people related by blood, marriage, or adoption may face. Here are five types of family law issues:
Divorce/Dissolution of Marriage
Ending a marriage is never easy, and getting divorced doesn't have to be hard. There are many approaches to resolving divorces with unbundled legal help such as meditation, collaboration and uncontested divorce. Speak with your provider attorney about the approach best suited to your goals and legal needs.
Child Custody and Visitation
Following legal separation or divorce, the court designates which party will be the custodial parent - the parent with whom the child primarily resides. The non-custodial parent will have the child in his or her care for a specific period of time for visitation. It some cases, the court will order joint custody, where both parents have the children for an equal amount of time.
Your unbundled provider attorney explains for you what your child custody and visitation options are and helps you put together a game plan to identify the best parenting arrangement for your children. Once you approve the parenting plan, your attorney then will work with you in preparing a concise written argument for filing and presentation to the judge.
In divorce and child custody cases, the court determines each parent's financial responsibility for the children involved based on each party's finances. Then the court establishes the amount of money to be paid by one party to the other with a schedule for those payments. Usually the parent earning the most money will pay the other parent to help equalize their financial contributions towards the needs of the children. Remember, although your family unit is changing both parents retain moral obligations to support their children financially.
Your provider attorney will give you an idea of the standard amounts for child support given your circumstances and together you can decide the best course of action to ensure that your child is receiving the lawful amount of child support necessary.
In some cases, the court may determine that a biological parent is unsuitable to provide for the needs of the child, and will terminate parental rights. This can also occur should a parent voluntarily give up rights to the children. Adoption and foster care are processes by which new parents are assigned legal rights to take over parental responsibilities for caring for the needs of a child.
Legal Help with Resolving Your Family Law Issue
Nearly all Americans are faced with at least one family law issue at some point in their lives; many will be effected repeatedly. Because family law issues are uniquely personal and very often emotional in a way that other areas of law are not, the insight and guidance of a knowledgeable and compassionate family law attorney will be invaluable for helping you to eliminate unnecessary stress from the unknown.
Why Use Unbundled Legal Help™ Services?
Recent studies indicate at least 2⁄3 of people that file in court do not have a lawyer representing them. We all know the importance of hiring an attorney, but the fact is most people "go it alone" because they simply cannot afford one. Typical starting retainers can be as high as $5000 or more.
With Unbundled Legal Help™ services, we have attorneys that offer unbundled legal services which can significantly reduce the cost of working with an attorney.
When you hire an attorney on an "unbundled" basis, you are billed for fewer hours, which costs you less money.
Instead of hiring an attorney to handle your entire case start to finish, you can hire the attorney to handle specific parts, which "unbundles" these tasks from the parts you can do yourself.
Unbundled legal services is not a good fit for every case. Hiring an attorney for full representation may be what you need, but before you commit to spending thousands of dollars up front, find out if unbundled can work for you.
