Prices

Many law firms are not transparent about how much it costs to hire them. Or how they will bill you. We are. We offer either a monthly membership program for unrepresented litigants or a flat fee to legally represent one party in a lawsuit.

Monthly membership fees for Divorce Course are the following:

  1. Uncontested divorce, no minor children, filing in Cook County, Illinois: $500 per month, for 3 months minimum.
  2. Uncontested divorce, with minor children, filing in Cook County, Illinois: $600 per month, for 3 months minimum.

Flat fee representation includes the following:

Flat fees are the cost of your case from start to finish.
With flat fees, you'll know the total cost of your case when you first contact us.

1. Uncontested divorce cases with no children start at a flat fee of $2000*. The price we quote you is for the total amount that you will pay for our representing you for your entire case! We fully represent the party (either the Petitioner or the Respondent, but not both) and do all of the efiling, drafting of documents, and the one court appearance at the end of the case (called the prove-up).

*Does not include the filing fee the Court charges you to open a case.

2. Uncontested divorce cases with children start at a flat fee of $3000*. The price we quote you is for the total amount that you will pay for our representing you for your entire case! The same information from above applies except we draft additional documents for child support orders and wage garnishments.

*Does not include the filing fee the Court charges you to open a case.

3. Contested family law cases (divorce or custody) can be flat fees or fixed fees, but we need to know more about your case before we give you a quote because contested cases vary widely. How much are you in agreement on? How far apart are you and on what issues? Is there an opposing counsel or is the other party representing themselves? When you contact us, we'll ask you a series of questions that will help us determine what the fees will be for your specific case.

We recommend you compare what we are doing to what other firms are doing. When you call another firm, ask how much their retainer is, if they offer flat fees. Most will only hire you if you pay the large retainer, and then will bill you based upon the lawyer's hourly rate. Ask how much this hourly rate is. Chicagoland divorce attorneys normally charge between $300-400/hour. Consider that one court appearance is at least 1 hour, and you'll see how charges quickly add up in the retainer/billable hourly model.

Now compare that to our flat fee model.

Our goal is to be upfront about our prices because many lawyers (MANY lawyers) are not. And that's a shame because price is such a big issue when you work with a lawyer. Hiring an attorney is something that should not be done blindly. It is a serious action and you want to work with a law firm and lawyer you feel comfortable with. Check us out to see if we are a good fit for you.
