There is no “one-size-fits-all” solution.
Whether you are contemplating re-partnering, having a child, ending your relationship, whatever it is you are dealing with, we are here to help you navigate through this transition. Family Law is all we do.
We have the experience and expertise to help you create your unique Family Law Solution.
A payment in advance or a “retainer” is requested when you hire us to provide you with services. Lawyers provide ongoing services at an hourly rate and bill for disbursements such as court fees, process server fees, courier costs etc.
If the matter costs less than the retainer the balance is returned. If it costs more the client is required to replenish the retainer.
After our initial consultation we provide you with a copy of our Retainer agreement that details the billing terms including our hourly rate.
Many, if not most legal matters are unpredictable and vary widely in costs. Drafting documents for court can for the most part be predictable.
At the initial consultation we provide you with a checklist of documents we require to assist you with this process. We also set out a time line. We recognize your need for cost certainty and are willing to work within your budget.
A higher level of cooperation is required from the client for this to be a mutually workable arrangement. Payment has to be rendered in full before we commence work.
