How to Get a Divorce Attorney with Little Money for a Retainer

Wall & Wall Attorneys at Law understands that not everyone’s financial situation will allow them to pay a divorce attorney in the usual sense.  This is why we are now offering clients a way to get professional help with their divorce, while at the same time, keeping the cost of divorce under control. With the do-it-yourself divorce attorney assistance program, clients are allowed to pay for a single appointment with an attorney, and in return they will receive the professional services they will need to go through the process themselves, and obtain the desired result.  No one should enter a divorce process if they do not have the appropriate legal background, so we offer the needed guidance to make the process manageable.  With our help, our clients will be prepared to represent themselves competently and confidently.

What Kind of Services Are Provided in Do It Yourself Divorce Assistance?

In essence, this is a pay as you go service from Wall & Wall.  Our clients will pay for an appointment with an attorney who will provide assistance during that one appointment.  Then, the client is done; unless the client wants to prepay for more appointments, or if they choose to turn the case over to an attorney for the case’s duration.  It’s all up to our client.

Services offered during your appointment generally include, but are not entirely limited to:

  • Guidance in proposing or analyzing settlement offers
  • Explain enforcement of orders
  • Mediation Preparation
  • Trail argument preparation
  • Discuss “what if my ex does this” scenarios
  • Advise and create case strategy
  • Ensure clients understand pertinent laws
  • Discuss scenarios that may arise during divorce proceedings
  • Document preparation
  • Prepare our client for mediation
  • Review pleadings
  • Organize facts and evidence for the case
  • Advise clients how to use the facts and evidence for your case
  • Help you determine which issues are most important for your case.

The client’s responsibility in our DIY Divorce Assistance Program from Wall & Wall is to gather your own documents, prepare your own pleadings (with advice from an attorney), represent yourself in court, and to keep track of deadlines.
