You want a divorce, but are worried about the cost of hiring a lawyer. Maybe you need help on a custody issue, but already have a tight budget and the cost of an attorney is simply more than you can afford at the moment. There is light at the end of the tunnel.
Depending on how straight forward your case is, full legal representation may not be needed, and you may only need an attorney to perform a few tasks. The attorneys at Bartholomew & Wasznicky offer a limited scope representation for clients who may not be able to afford to retain legal services on every aspect of their case or who only need a small aspect of their case to be handled by an attorney.
Some examples of matters we handle under a limited scope representation include:
- Custody/parenting plan requests, hearings, and negotiations
- Settlement conferences
- Drafting of Marital Settlement Agreements
- Department of Child Support Services (DCSS) hearings
- Temporary restraining order hearings
- Non-DCSS support modification requests and hearings
When clients desire limited scope representation, we ask them to sign a limited scope fee agreement that specifies exactly what we are doing for the them. If a court hearing is necessary, we will also prepare a Notice of Limited Scope for the court that tells the court exactly what our involvement is and where it ends.
Many clients decide later they want more comprehensive representation and we can easily switch them to full legal representation with a new agreement.
