Just like individuals, divorce cases are all unique--no two are the same. To provide the most flexibility in legal services, we have devised three levels of professional service.
Traditional Traditional attorney representation in family law is where you, the client, will pay a (typically) significant retainer fee and hand the planning and strategy almost entirely over to the lawyer. A lawyer representing you in this capacity will enter his or her appearance in any cases that are filed and all communication is handled through counsel. Traditional attorney representation rates in Weber County average around $250-350/hour. This may be the best option if --
you wish to eliminate as much as possible the burden and stress of planning and handling a divorce;
there are significant assets and there is a low probability of an agreement or out-of-court resolution;
time is of the essence and there is an urgent need for alimony and/or child support;
your case involves domestic violence and/or you are afraid of your spouse or the other parent.
you are in need of alimony and/or child support and you do not have access to information regarding your spouse's income or overall financial situation.
If you aren't certain whether this is the right option for you and/or you are seeking legal advice about your situation, you are welcome to schedule a free, 45-Minute, no-obligation, initial consultation with attorney Jennifer L. Neeley.
Consulting We offer legal consulting services to clients on an "as-needed" basis, also known as unbundled legal services. Legal consulting may be right for you if you don't want to save money and only want advice for specific legal questions or issues or specific projects. She is now offering a unique legal consulting service at the reduced attorney fee rate of $155/hour for those seeking legal advice, information, and education regarding the legal system in Utah. The goal here is to empower individuals to make fully informed decisions. If you aren't certain whether this is the right option you, and/or you are seeking legal advice about your situation, you are welcome to schedule a free, 45-Minute, no-obligation, initial consultation with attorney Jennifer L. Neeley to help you decide.
Coaching Divorce Coaching is a unique professional service to help support you as you go through the divorce process. Divorce coaches are helpers and guides. They are not therapists; nor do they offer legal advice or represent you in any legal capacity. However, a divorce coach can support you at every stage of a separation and divorce. Divorce coaching might be right for you if --
You want a road map to guide you through the Utah divorce system;
you would like assistance taking that first step toward divorce. We get it. Call us for guidance and support.
You would like a sounding board or "thinking partner" to help you navigate through the tough decisions in divorce;
you would like practical advice.
Call us or click today to schedule a free discovery session to see if coaching is right for you. We offer multiple-session coaching packages of three (3), Five (5), and ten (10) call sessions. Choose how to receive your discovery session: in-person consultation at our Ogden, Utah office, by Skype, or by telephone.
