Why work with Kubik Legal?

How has the coronavirus impacted you, the Courts, or working with lawyers?

As of March 20, 2020, all Illinois Courts are closed for most routine matters.

Ouch #1!

But! In an interesting turn of events, you can still e-file documents and in some cases, you can go from beginning to end of your divorce lawsuit... and it all can be done remotely! That's right, despite the courts being closed to normal litigation, some (namely Cook County) are allowing divorces to proceed from a distance.

That's right. You do not have to stay married during this timeframe. You do not have to wait for the Courts to resume their normal procedures.

Kubik Legal is proud to offer you several solutions for Cook County divorces. One is our DIY Divorce Course, another is by offering flat fees if you retain us for your uncontested divorce. And finally, we can fully represent you for contested divorce or custody matters.

Did you also know that most attorneys will not represent you unless you pay them thousands of dollars up front?

Ouch #2!

Kubik Legal is unlike other law firms. Our founder, Sara Kubik, went through her own contentious 7-year long custody battle while working as a professor. During this time she went to law school. Now she's an Illinois-licensed family law attorney who has practiced before judges in Cook County and the surrounding collar counties.

Naturally when you have a lawyer who has a PhD in Technology running a law firm, you get something special. You get a law firm that can change with the times. You get better services that can help legal clients.

One service we have is for people who do not want to fully retain a lawyer, but need help going through their Illinois divorce.

Divorce Course is for spouses who have already agreed on everything, and want to file for divorce, but don't know what forms they need to fill out, or how to e-file their documents, or how to get before the Judge in Illinois.

Is that you? If you don't want to pay a lawyer to fully represent you, then yes it is. If you want a do it yourself divorce, then Divorce Course is for you. If you're able to learn from others, as if you're taking an online distance education course, then for sure Divorce Course is for you!

Divorce Course is an online, step-by-step service that you can use for your DIY divorce. The membership fee starts at $199 per month.

You'll get access to our exclusive content showing you what forms you need to use, what they mean, how you e-file them, how to get a time scheduled before a judge, what to expect in either in-person or remote court, and more.

You'll also be able to talk to a practicing attorney; that's included in Divorce Course along with access to our unique content. Side note, attorneys in Chicago commonly bill clients $400 an hour to talk to them! 1 hour = $400 just. to. talk. to. them!

With Divorce Course, you get content that walks you through doing your own divorce. You'll learn how to fill in forms, how to e-file them, and how to appear before the Judge without being represented by a lawyer. And if you need to talk to an attorney, that's also included.

You can view our introductory lesson for free.

What if you want a law firm to fully represent you?

Kubik Legal, again, offers you a great service. That's by representing you under a flat fee agreeement.

What's representation? That's where our attorney represents one spouse, gives that spouse legal advice, fills in forms and drafts paperwork, appears in court, and e-files all documents. It's what you think of when you retain an attorney.

What's a flat fee? It's the total amount that you will pay for your case. You know up front what your case will cost you. We can efficiently represent you and help you avoid ouch #1 described above. The flat fee model is a newer model that lawyers can use.

With law fims that bill you traditionally, you need to pay thousands of dollars (for a retainer) before an attorney begins to work on your case. If your retainer runs out, you may have to pay another retainer. And another... and now we're back at ouch #1.

Flat fees are a total amount. Our fees include:

  1. Uncontested divorce cases with no children start at a flat fee of $2000.
  2. Uncontested divorce cases with children start at a flat fee of $3000.

Contested divorce and custody cases are ones where the parties are in disagreement. An up-front retainer of $3000 is required for contested cases. We bill based upon the actual time we spend working on the case at $300 per hour, in 0.1 increments. More information about our prices can be found here.
