Family Law Attorney J. Marie Rudd
Limited representation is when an attorney represents or assists with only a part (or parts) of a legal matter. For example, an attorney may only represent a client with regard to obtaining a judgment of divorce. The client would represent him/herself for all other issues such as child custody and/or support. If you wanted or needed the attorney to represent you beyond the limited scope of representation, you would need to enter into a separate contract of representation.
When to consider limited representation
- There are no children of the marriage
- There is no property to be divided
- You are already divorced but have never divided property
- You can limit your attorneys’ fees. At Rudd Law Firm, we often provide flat fee options for limited representation matters.
- You can focus your legal budget on those issues that are most important to you.
