Cost-Effective Divorce Solutions for Connecticut Individuals

Money is a big concern for most people getting divorced. Some people reduce the cost of divorce by handling many of the legal tasks without a lawyer. If you are considering a do-it-yourself divorce, but have questions you’d like answered, would like assistance with document preparation or need help preparing for child custody mediation, I can help.

At the Law Offices of Robert B. Fried, I offer limited-scope divorce representation that can be tailored to meet your needs. When you take advantage of my unbundled divorce services, you select only the help you need — keeping you in control of the cost and progression of your divorce case. Contact my law firm to discuss our services and learn how you can benefit from my limited-scope divorce representation.

Connecticut Lawyer Handling Divorce Document Drafting and Other Limited-Scope Services

While Connecticut courts currently do not allow family law attorneys to make court appearances on behalf of individuals representing themselves (pro se), there are many divorce services that can be provided on a limited-scope basis. Unlike most other firms in Connecticut, my law firm offers services that enable you to determine the extent of our involvement in your case and, ultimately, the amount of work you’ll be handling yourself.

Some of my limited-scope family law services include:
  • Preparing initial pleadings, responses, motions and other divorce documents
  • Negotiating divorce and separation agreements
  • Advising you regarding a proposed settlement agreement
  • Preparing you for divorce and child custody mediation
  • Preparing you to represent yourself in trial or arbitration
  • Various other limited-scope services
I recognize that facing divorce can be extremely difficult. Worrying about how you will be able to afford your divorce only compounds matters. By handling the easier portions of your case without an attorney, you can have confidence knowing that you are in control of expenses and that more complicated matters that you are uncomfortable with are being handled by an experienced lawyer.

It is important to realize, however, that a do-it-yourself divorce is not for everyone. Mistakes made throughout the process can be extremely expensive to correct in the future. Before proceeding, it is important to discuss your options and what’s involved in the divorce process with an experienced Hartford divorce lawyer. I can thoroughly explain my full- and limited-scope divorce services, so that you can make intelligent decisions about moving forward with your case.
