Collin County Lawyer For Limited Scope Divorce Representation

Dallas County limited scope representation for divorce

Attorney For Divorce and Family Law Services in Plano, TX

The thought of hiring an attorney for a divorce or family law matter may give some people pause, whether because of the anticipated costs or the fear of escalating conflict. If you and your spouse agree on most of the issues at hand, you may even question whether a lawyer is necessary. However, an experienced attorney can be a valuable asset even outside of contested divorce litigation. Through limited scope representation, an attorney can help you through some of the most challenging aspects of the divorce process while leaving other details in your hands.

At the Law Office of Brian Bagley, we understand that everyone has different needs and priorities in their divorce, and that the same legal approach will not always work. We offer limited scope representation as a flexible option that can help you save money and time. With 10 years of family law experience, we can help you at strategic points throughout the divorce process as you work toward your desired resolution.

What is Limited Scope Representation?

Comprehensive legal representation throughout the divorce process can be quite expensive. Some attorneys charge both a retainer and an hourly rate, and costs can accumulate quickly when the attorney is involved in filing the petition and all required forms, as well as representing the client throughout negotiations or litigation regarding asset division, child custody, and child support. By the time the divorce resolution is finalized, a person could be paying for months of an attorney's services.

Limited scope representation is a more cost-effective alternative that allows you to choose the specific services you need from an attorney. For example, if you and your spouse have limited assets, you may be able to negotiate a marital property settlement on your own, but you may want legal representation as you negotiate a custody agreement that protects your relationships with your children. Alternatively, you may feel confident in reaching a co-parenting agreement with your spouse, but need legal assistance for dividing complex assets like businesses or retirement accounts.

Limited scope representation can also be a good fit for those pursuing an uncontested divorce or using alternative dispute resolution methods like mediation. Though you may ultimately want to keep negotiations between you and your spouse, you may decide to consult with an attorney first to better understand the issues at hand and develop a strategy for protecting your interests. After you have reached an agreement on your own, an attorney can also help you prepare the agreement to be filed with the court, ensuring that you have addressed all of the administrative details to finalize your divorce without unexpected delays.

Limited Scope Representation for Other Family Law Matters

We also offer limited scope legal representation for matters other than divorce. For example, we can review a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement that you and your spouse have already drafted, or help you complete and file a voluntary acknowledgment of paternity. We can also review and help you file petitions and agreements for modifications to child support, spousal support, and child custody orders.
