The term ‘Full Representation’ as it pertains to a California Divorce means that the Attorney is the ‘Attorney of Record’ for the case. In this regard the Attorney will typically charge a retainer and hourly rates for time spent on the case, in the court or in conversation with the client.’Full Representation’ is not the only way that Attorneys can help with Divorce. There are some Attorneys who offer ‘unbundled’ legal services or ‘limited scope’ services which allow the Attorneys to offer flat fees. In this case the Attorney would not be the ‘Attorney of Record’.

There are 2 factors in divorce–one is the paperwork that is filed and the other is responding appropriately to what was filed. I’m not sure what happened in your case but if there is a change in circumstance you can always go back to court on a Request for Order to change an existing order. Most of the time you lose because you did not respond correctly or you did not prove that the child would do better with you as the custodial parent. How old is the child that is having trouble in school? Would the child prefer to live with you?
