Getting Split Ready Episode 9: Ala Carte Divorce – An Introduction to Unbundled Legal Services

We live in a time of unparalleled customization. From the choices of what to watch on TV to the set-up of the home screen on a phone, consumers demand the ability to manage their lives how they want. Divorce is no different and more and more couples are seeking ways to control the divorce process, control the costs and meet their desired objectives. Enter unbundled legal services or limited scope representation as it is sometimes called. Under this model divorcing individuals work with their attorney to clearly identify the scope of what the attorney will do and the related cost. When coupled with the available options for divorcing individuals to do their own research and planning, this can be a very powerful and cost effective option.

Join us for a discussion with Sandra Crawford about unbundled legal services as they relate to divorce.
