Whether you are considering divorce or working through child custody issues, one of the immediate concerns I hear most often is, "What is your retainer and how much is this going to cost?"
When emotions are high and finances are uncertain, it is important to partner with an attorney who understands the need for manageable payments as life-changing details are worked through. As you shop for an attorney, chances are you will hear retainers that start at $2,500 (on the low end) and hover right around $5,000 as the average in Colorado. At my firm, we work out payment plans that are in the hundreds of dollars per month and I don't sneak in extra costs for things like copies, postage, office supplies and other expenses that should rightfully be considered a law firm's cost of doing business.
Once I am retained on your behalf, your former spouse (and their attorney, if they have retained one) will be instructed to funnel all communication through my firm. This will immediately lower stress levels for everyone and will ensure that your case is presented to the courts in a manner that safeguards your interests and the interests of your children.
You and I will be in regular communication about the progress of your case, all the while keeping monthly payments in the hundreds of dollars a month so they remain manageable as your case is resolved.
