Affordable Sacramento Divorce Part 1

by | Feb 16, 2014 | Firm News |

Any party that is seriously considering undergoing a Sacramento divorce has many things to consider.  One of these critical considerations is the financial cost of starting and completing the divorce.  The reality of 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 the parties seek to negotiation and settle the issues in their case, the less they will pay in attorney fees and costs associated with going to court.

The cost of a Sacramento divorce does not have to be prohibitive to hiring a good Sacramento Divorce attorney to represent you.  One popular way to reduce legal costs is to utilize limited scope legal services.  When you hire a Sacramento divorce attorney in limited scope, the limited scope attorney will request a lower client retainer and utilize a contract to limit his representation to a few issues as agreed between him and the client.  This leaves responsibility for the other issues completely to the client.  Typically a limited scope Sacramento divorce attorney will provide their client 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 the divorce case in court or at trial.  The client is 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 are able to request a lower retainer.
