In a divorce case, I first try to see whether or not a separation agreement is possible
A separation agreement is an agreement by the parties on the issue that presents itself for that divorce. Some of these issues are,
Grounds for divorce
Each issue that is resolved by agreement, doesn't have to be litigated, and works to lower the cost of litigation.
In Guardianship and Name Change Cases, I Seek Agreement
If there's an agreement on the issues in guardianship and name change cases, I can charge a flat fee. If there's no agreement, I ask for a retainer (an advance from which I can bill against, at an hourly rate).
I also prepare wills, living wills, powers of attorney, durable powers of attorney, and deeds, for flat fees.
I will work to make a stressful time less stressful & more satisfactory
