FAQs

Yes. We have a no-charge, no obligation, initial consultation.

A divorce case can be concluded in as little as 2 to 3 months or last for years. Typically, most cases resolve within 6 to 9 months.

We accept all forms of payment.  The preferred payment method is with an eCheck, debit, or credit card through LawPay available on our website.

No one should enter into a divorce case without understanding how much the case will cost. That being said, it is impossible to provide an accurate estimate of the total cost of your divorce case without knowing more about your specific situation. That is one of the reasons we offer a no-charge, no obligation, initial consultation.

Yes, but it is not recommended that you attempt to represent yourself in a divorce case.  Litigation  is complicated, divorce is emotionally charged, and the effects of a divorce case can last for years after the case is concluded.  Everyone needs a good attorney on their team.
