How Can I Make My Sacramento Divorce More Affordable, Part 1?

There are many considerations to undertake before undergoing a Sacramento divorce.  A common concern many people vocalize in a Sacramento divorce is the cost.  The honest truth about litigating a Sacramento divorce in court is that it is usually expensive.  Each party is generally responsible for paying for their own attorney and each trip to court is expensive.  The more you and your spouse dispute issues such as child custody, child support, spousal support, or division of assets and debts, the more time your attorney must spend in court asking the judge to decide these issues on your behalf.

The good news is that there are ways you can reduce costs. 

One popular way is to utilize limited scope legal services.  When you hire a Sacramento divorce attorney in limited scope, the attorney will charge a lower client retainer and utilize a contract to limit his representation to a few issues.  This leaves responsibility for the other issues completely to the client.  Typically a limited scope Sacramento divorce attorney will provide you with vital legal document review and preparation services, legal advice, and coaching on a divorce strategy.  However, the limited scope attorney will not make court appearances or litigate your case at trial.  You will be solely responsible for all court appearances and trial because the court only expects you to handle that responsibility.  This is why limited scope Sacramento divorce attorneys charge a lower retainer.

If you are interested in utilizing limited scope services from a Sacramento divorce attorney, please give us a call.  Our Sacramento divorce and Sacramento child custody attorneys can provide you with further information on limited scope divorce services.
