What are Flat-Fee Legal Services?

Navigating the court system without the assistance of a divorce attorney can be difficult in normal circumstances. With the added uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, it has become increasingly important for pro se parties to seek alternative forms of representation.

Appearing pro se simply means that you are appearing on your own behalf, without an attorney. Some courts are now advising that parties without family law attorneys consider obtaining limited-scope representation, often called “unbundled” legal services. Our unbundled services are available for a flat-fee, per service.

Limited-scope representation is when your lawyer handles only some parts of your case, as compared to a traditional relationship where the attorney handles all aspects of your case. 

Lawyer signing documents.

Unbundled representation is a way for you to choose, a-la-carte, what legal services your attorney can provide you. You can mix-and-match the specific tasks your attorney is completing for you. The flat-fee options below represent all phases of the divorce process, from consultation to trial. Your attorney can also coach you how to represent yourself pro se and can help with preparing your case. No matter where you find yourself in the process, we’ve got your back!

*All of the following services are offered on a flat-fee, per-service basis and do not include an attorney entering an appearance on your behalf except mediation.
You will be pro se unless an attorney is actually retained to represent you in court.
