DuPage County Divorce: A La Carte Services

Posted by Erin Birt | Nov 16, 2011 | 0 Comments

La Carte Legal Services are also called “limited scope legal representation” and “unbundled legal services.”  Regardless of what the service is called, it means that the client can pick and choose what services the attorney will perform during the course of representation. This post will focus on DuPage County Divorce: A La Carte Services.

Attempting to navigate the legal system alone is daunting, inefficient, and not cost effective.  Vacation days, sick days, or unpaid absences will have to be used to prepare documents and travel to court to file petitions, motions, notices, proof of service, etc. There will be more time off of work to attend court appearances. And if the documents are not prepared correctly, it will have to be redone and more time will have to be taken off from work.  Less time at a job most likely means less pay.

Finding yourself in this situation is extremely stressful, however, there are options.  You can hire an attorney to help you where you need it the most: prepare a legally sufficient Petition for Dissolution of Marriage or Petition for Modification of Child Support (or any needed petition, motion, or response), obtain court dates, appear at hearings, or just provide legal consulting in order to adequately prepare you for discovery, a court appearance, or hearing date, etc.

Money is tight for all right now, and especially during the holiday season. Money should not prevent you from addressing your legal needs and/or life transition.  A unique package of services can be created to fit your specific legal and financial needs.

If you, or someone you know, is attempting to represent themselves and feel it is not sufficient, or are in need of divorce related services now and don't know where to get started, please contact The Law Firm of Erin N. Birt, P.C. to discuss your legal needs and to determine an acceptable A La Carte Service package.  For more information about DuPage County Divorce: A La Carte Services, please visit our webpage dedicated to such services.
