Prices

Many law firms are not transparent about how much it costs to hire them. Or how they will bill you. We are.

We are also very flexible in payment models. We offer either a monthly membership program for unrepresented litigants, or a flat fee to legally represent one party in an uncontested lawsuit, or a billable hourly model. These models are explained below, but don't be overwhelmed. If you have questions, contact us. The point is, there's a solution out there that works for you and we have it.

Monthly membership fees for the DIY divorce service called 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) are billed at an hourly model with an initial $3000 retainer paid up front. When we begin working on your case, we bill at $300 per hour. Everything we do on your case is billed in 0.1 and up increments. So if we draft a document and it takes us 10 minutes, you are billed 0.2. That amount equals $300 * 0.2 or $60.

We deduct the billed time from the retainer until it is depleted. Depending upon your case, we may ask for an additional retainer.

Contested divorces are normally the most expensive cases and hardest to quote if a person asks, "How much will my entire case be?" There are so many things that can prolong a case or make it more complicated. That is why we bill based upon the actual time we spend working on the case.

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.
