Attorney Fees And Costs


Legal issues are already stressful enough, but when you have to pay thousands of dollars in attorney fees and costs, they become even more so. Many people choose to take care of their own legal matters instead of hiring a family law attorney, but doing so can actually end up costing you more in the long run.

If you're going through child custody, divorce, or any family law dispute, it's crucial to hire an attorney who knows the ins & outs of family law and can help you get the best outcome achievable in your situation. Jos Family Law offers excellent legal representation at reasonable attorney fees & costs with flexible payment plans for clients.

Know Before You Go!

Before selecting a family law attorney, it is important to know what type of representation you need. If, for instance, you are filing for divorce or legal separation and would like an attorney to handle your matter from the start-finish, then that is considered all-inclusive representation.

If you would like help with just one aspect of the process, such as drafting paperwork or discussing settlement options with your spouse's lawyer, then this is called limited scope representation. Limited scope representation can also include being appointed as guardian ad litem for children in contested custody cases.

However, unlike all-inclusive representation, there may be additional fees for certain tasks performed by the attorney. For example, if your case goes to trial and you want someone other than the original attorney to argue on your behalf at trial, then there will be additional costs.

In general, it is a good idea to get some guidance before hiring an attorney about what services are included in their fee agreement. So you do not end up spending more money than necessary on unforeseen charges. Our experts at Jos Family Law are here to address any concerns & will be able to guide you through the fee structure.

Talk With Your Attorney About The Expenses & Fee Structure

Some attorneys offer flat fees, while others charge by time spent. The fee structure your attorney offers you will dictate how much of a financial burden you have to take when considering the cost of hiring them. When speaking with an attorney about their fee structure, it is important to be forthcoming about what type of case you have.

Who your opponent is, & what kind of help you need so that they can tailor their services to meet your needs - as closely as possible.

Lawyers have to eat, too. Lawyers are people with families, mortgages, and tuition payments like everyone else. Some lawyers often get pressured into charging clients a premium just because they're experts in their fields. Before you agree to an attorney's fee or cost, think about whether the price is fair. If you're not sure if it's reasonable or not, why not ask?
