Limited Scope Divorce Services


What are Limited Scope Divorce Services?

Illinois A La Carte Divorce Services, also referred to as “limited scope services” and “unbundled legal services” is an affordable divorce option in Illinois.

In January 2010, the Illinois Rules of Professional Conduct (RPC) made great progress in responding to client's needs during these difficult economic times by creating a new rule. RPC 1.2 (c) states “a lawyer may limit the scope of representation if the limitation is reasonable under the circumstances and the client gives informed consent.” Thus began the Illinois A La Carte Divorce.

Illinois A La Carte Divorce Services allow a client to pick and choose what legal services are needed. Upon an agreement between the attorney and the client, an engagement agreement is prepared detailing what particular A La Carte Divorce Services will be provided and what services will not be provided by the attorney.
