Most Attorneys that practice Family Law or Divorce charge a retainer fee and an hourly rate to fully represent you. ‘Full representation’ means that the Attorney prepares all paperwork needed, communicates with the courts as well as any other Attorney involved in the case. Each time the Attorney speaks with you or anyone else concerning your case, prepares any paperwork or goes to court on your behalf, the hourly rate is being charged. The hourly rate ranges from $250 to as much as $1,000 per hour and anywhere in between. These hourly fees can mount very quickly.
There are alternatives to full representation. This is called limited scope or unbundled legal services. Attorneys who practice this type of law charge clients piece meal for what they do. They standardize the parts of a legal procedure so that they can charge a flat fee. In this way, the Attorney knows exactly what needs to be done while the client knows exactly what he/she will be getting.
