The Alternative To An Expensive Divorce
Divorce does not have to be expensive. If you and your spouse are able to reach agreements without having to fight it out in court, an uncontested divorce or “joint petition” or even a do-it-yourself divorce may be an option for you.
At the Roncone Law Offices, P.C., our attorneys can meet with you to assist with a do-it-yourself divorce in Leominster, Fitchburg, Worcester and the surrounding parts of Massachusetts. We understand that the changing economy requires people to cut costs wherever possible. However, we believe that results should not be sacrificed in order to save money. We can work with you to limit your legal costs by providing services on strictly an as-needed basis, based on an hourly consultation with an attorney of your choosing. You may meet with an attorney for as often as you may want or need, allowing you to achieve results while controlling your legal costs.
The attorneys at the Roncone Law Offices, P.C., are state certified to represent clients as part of the Commonwealth’s “Limited Assistance Representation Project.” Limited Assistance Representation (LAR) is when an attorney represents or assists a litigant with part, but not all, of his or her legal matter. More information on the Limited Assistance Program can be obtained here: Limited Assistance Program.
You Need More Than A Divorce Kit
Some law firms or websites now offer divorce kits. These are nothing more than a bundle of paperwork and an instruction manual. No true guidance is provided, which frequently causes people to make mistakes that end up being more costly than if they had enlisted a lawyer in the first place.
Our do-it-yourself divorce services are different. Our service involves providing as much, or as little, guidance as you require. That guidance will be provided by an experienced attorney. While you will not have formal representation, you can still be confident because you will get sound guidance on everything from an explanation of how the process works, your rights, assistance with some basic paperwork preparation to how to present yourself in the courtroom.
When Do-It-Yourself Divorce Is Not An Option
While our do-it-yourself divorce services are extremely valuable in many uncontested or simple divorce cases, there are times when this is not the most appropriate option. If there are complex issues, such as child custody disputes or arguments over division of property, you may be better served by having an attorney represent you to see that you achieve the outcome you want.
