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.
Whether you are faced with a pending divorce or seeking help resolving a child custody or visitation rights issue, it is likely that the legal challenges you are facing may feel overwhelming. Family law issues directly impact the most intimate of life's relationships and it is our goal to give you immediate access to the legal assistance you need to make the right decisions for your future and your family.
Explained most simply, family law deals with legal matters that impact families. It includes the legal situations that people who are related by blood, marriage, or adoption may face. The majority of family law legal issues involve:
Divorce/Dissolution of Marriage - Ending a marriage is never easy, but getting divorced doesn’t have to be hard. There are many alternative approaches to resolving divorces in addition to unbundled legal help such as meditation, collaboration and uncontested divorce. Speak with your provider attorney about which approach will be best suited to your goals and legal needs.
Child Custody and Visitation - Following legal separation or divorce, the court will designate who will be the custodial parent - the parent whose home is where the child will primarily reside - and a non-custodial parent who will have the child in his or her care for a specific period of time for visitation. It some cases, the court may order joint custody, where both parents could have the children for an equal amount of time.
Your unbundled provider attorney will explain your child custody and visitation options and you can put together a game plan on what would be the best parenting arrangement to care for the needs of your children. Once you are clear on a parenting plan, your attorney will assist in preparing all the facts and primary reasons of why this arrangement is in the best interests of your child and compile it into a concise written argument to be filed and presented to the judge.
Child Support - In divorce and child custody cases, the court determines each parent's financial responsibility toward his or her child based on both parties' finances and then the court establishes an amount of money that will be paid from one party to the other on a regular basis. Usually the parent that earns more money will pay the other parent to balance out each of their financial contributions towards the needs of the child. Remember, just because your family unit is changing doesn’t mean either parent gets to relinquish their moral obligation to support their children financially.
Your provider attorney can give you an idea of what the standard amounts for child support would be in your situation and together you can decide the best course of action to ensure that your child is receiving the correct amount of child support.
Adoption - In certain cases, the court may determine that the biological parents may be deemed unsuitable to care for the needs of a child, and will terminate their parental rights. This can also occur when parents voluntarily give up their rights to their children. Adoption is the process by which new parents are assigned the legal rights to take over the parental responsibilities to care for the needs of that child.
Nearly all Americans will be faced with at least one family law issue at some point in their lives; many will be affected repeatedly. Since family law issues are uniquely personal and often emotional in a way that many other areas of law are not, the insight and guidance of a knowledgeable and compassionate family law attorney can be invaluable in helping to eliminate the unnecessary stress of the unknown.
Why "Unbundled" Legal Help?
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.
At Unbundled Legal Help, 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.
