Self-Help

 

Self-Help is perfect for people that just need a little help with their case.

 

Quick Consult*:

A 15-minute telephone, FaceTime or Skype consultation.

For self-represented parties who are confident in their ability to handle their case but want a little help.

A quick consult is right for you if you:

  • Are uncertain about something in your family law case and want a brief consultation with an experienced family law lawyer.
  • Want to know if what you are being told by a lawyer on the other side is correct.
  • Are unsure about one or two simple legal questions about family law or your case.

You may use the time to ask the questions that matter the most to you. You control the time and the cost and use the time as you want.

 

Extended Consult*:

A 1-hour block of time.

An extended consult can:

  • Help you to understand the law, your rights and obligations
  • Give you a legal opinion about the strengths and weaknesses in your case, teach you about the family law courts in Volusia county and what you can expect when you go to court
  • Prepare you for your next steps in the process
  • Provide an experienced family law lawyer to review documents and allow you to have any other questions answered.

An extended consult can be done by phone, Skype or even email at a time convenient for you. No need to miss work to travel to an office and no retainer to get started. Purchase as many extended consultations as you need to complete your matter.

 

Mediation*:

If you and your spouse need help to negotiate a parenting plan or the division of assets and liabilities so that you can file an uncontested divorce, the Collaborative Divorce Center offers mediation services to unrepresented parties.

The sessions are two hours each and you may have as many sessions as you need to resolve some or all of your contested matters.

 

Document Drafting*:

If both sides agree to the terms and you do not require negotiation, we’ve got the lawyers to prepare a legal and enforceable agreement for you. We will also make sure that you have considered all issues to fully understand your rights and responsibilities.

The price includes an initial draft and one round of edits to make sure that the agreement includes the terms you want.

The prices given reflect a range and the exact cost to you may be more or less, depending upon your specific situation.

 

Pre-Nuptial Agreement*:

Pre-nuptial agreements provide for what will happen with your assets should you divorce. A pre-nuptial agreement must be negotiated and signed well in advance of any pending marriage, so don’t wait until the last minute to seek legal advice about a pre-nuptial agreement.

 

Marital Settlement Agreement*:

If you and your spouse have agreed on how to divide your assets and liabilities and, if you do not have children, what the arrangements will be with regard to them, the Collaborative Divorce Center can draft a marital settlement agreement for you. You can then file an uncontested divorce.

 

Parenting Plan*:

If you have children, the court will require a parenting plan between you and your spouse. If you and your spouse have agreed on the arrangements for your children such as where they will be spending weekday and weekend and holiday time and who will provide health insurance and how other expenses are to be shared, then the Collaborative Divorce Center can assist in drafting a parenting plan and calculating child support.

 

* Our promise to you is that we will provide a price up-front, and will always strive to provide the highest quality and best value as your representative.
