Can you send me a quote for attorney’s fees in my family law case?

  Everyone is concerned about money, especially now. But, really, in my line of business, I feel the same sense of urgency where finances are concerned regardless of whether there’s a global pandemic. Attorneys are expensive. And family law attorneys are different from other kinds of attorneys – specifically, personal injury attorneys – so some…

What is a retainer in Virginia divorce?

We get a lot of questions about the cost of divorce, pro bono work, attorney’s fees (like, can I make him pay mine?) and so much more. We find that there’s a lot of confusion about how attorney’s charge for their work and what it actually costs. That’s probably for a lot of reasons. I…

How do I get him to pay for my Virginia divorce?

We can all put divorce right up there on the tippy top of the list of things we don’t want to pay for, right? Even if you want the divorce itself, you don’t really want to pay the costs associated with it. A joke I hear all the time – especially when I tell random…

Can I get him to pay my Virginia divorce attorney’s fees?

Literally no one ever wants to pay attorney’s fees. It’s a reoccurring theme, and one I’m more or less used to at this point. We get questions every single day about pro bono work, free consults, and whether we work with legal service insurance provided through employers. When women find out that we really don’t…

I can’t afford a Virginia divorce lawyer

Legal representation is expensive. I get it. And it’s often especially scary because, at the beginning of a case, it is difficult to know how far and how long it’ll go. Family law attorneys take cases on retainers, and work is done on an hourly basis. We don’t know how long a case will last,…

Why don’t you do free consultations?

Why don’t you do free consultations? We get phone calls all day long asking about free consultations and pro bono legal services. It’s understandable. Facing a divorce or custody case is a pretty scary thing, and there aren’t court appointed attorneys to help in these types of cases. You may have heard all those Miranda…
