Family Law Made Easy and Affordable
Family law issues like divorce, child custody and adoption can be some of the most difficult to deal with due to the strong emotions involved. It’s not uncommon to feel uncertain and scared. Having the comforting hand of a competent attorney to guide you will reduce stress, protect your rights and minimize negative impact on any children involved.
For as little as $24.95/month, a LegalShield plan gets you access to a team of experienced attorneys, so you can resolve the issue correctly and legally, and move on with your life.
Every Part of Family Law is Covered
Your legal plan allows you to contact your attorney to get legal advice and support with any area of family law.
Get Divorced With Less Hassle and Conflict
Even if your divorce is uncontested and relatively low drama, making decisions that will impact the rest of your life should not be rushed or taken lightly.
To make good choices, it’s important to understand how the divorce process works, how long it takes and your rights and responsibilities. All divorces require you to assemble financial documents, file a divorce petition in the proper jurisdiction, negotiate with your spouse and a slew of other potentially overwhelming tasks. You don’t have to go it alone.
Working with a divorce attorney that can answer questions, guide your decision making and help you prepare documents can make your life much easier. A LegalShield membership allows you to speak with a family law attorney for a fraction of normal legal fees and they can relieve much of the burden by handling an uncontested divorce on your behalf.
Make Sure the Best Interests of Your Children are Addressed
If your divorce involves children, the stakes are high. Making sure child custody and child support are fair to both parties and represent the best interests of your children typically requires help from an impartial third party. For the sake of your kids, you need to get this right.
Also, modifying existing child support or child custody orders post divorce can cause anxiety. Rather than wrestling with confusing forms and getting into arguments with your former spouse, you can dramatically reduce your stress by having a family law attorney handle the situation for you.
Whatever your circumstances, working with LegalShield helps you rest easy knowing that your child custody, child support and related family law issues will be taken care of correctly and affordably.
Friction Free Adoption, Name Changes and More
Adopting a child can be one of the most rewarding and special steps a person can take. Trying to get through the paperwork and procedures, not so much.
Deciding to change your or your child’s name after divorce, adoption or remarriage is a big decision. It’s also another area of the law that requires you to fill out paperwork and follow want can seem like an endless stream of rules and regulations.
Eliminate all stressing and guessing by getting a LegalShield family plan. For one small monthly fee you can have an adoption or name change attorney help you with nearly any family law issue.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is a pre-paid legal plan and how does it work?
Instead of paying an attorney by the hour, you pay a small monthly fee (starting at $24.95) and have access to an independent attorney that will provide a huge variety of legal services without a huge legal bill. Services like consultation with an attorney, document review, drafting of debt collection letters and defense at civil trials are included as standard benefits. Using the plan just once can save you literally thousands of dollars. Watch the video on our home page for more information.
Using the plan is as simple as signing up and contacting our team. Once you’re a member, customer support will connect you with an independent attorney in your area who specializes in the specific legal issue with which you need help. Also, you can download our super simple app to quickly access your legal benefits and member perks anytime.
How long after I join can I use the plan?
You can use your plan as soon as your membership application is reviewed and your account is set up. The review process takes 12 - 24 hours (or less) from the moment you purchase your plan (on regular business days). Once accepted, you can be in contact with an attorney in 4 hours or less and begin to use the plan benefits and member perks outlined in the membership agreement right away.
What happens if my family law issue is contested?
Even if your family law issue is contested, you can still use all of the core plan benefits, such as attorney consultation, writing letters and making calls on your behalf and document review, for no additional fee.
Should you need more extensive representation in contested situations, you can hire your attorney for 25% off their standard hourly fee. So, no matter the circumstances or your specific legal needs, everything is covered one way or the other at a substantial discount.
How much can I save with a membership?
The average attorney in the US charges between $150 - $400 per hour. If you use your membership for even just a few hours a year you could easily save over $1000. If you have a bunch of small legal issues or one rather complicated issue, you can easily save multiple thousands of dollars over hiring an attorney directly. Not to mention the stress you’ll save by having an attorney on call instead of trying to handle legal issues yourself. Also, the attorneys in our network often help our members recover thousands of dollars of damages or avoid thousands of dollars in fees over what they would have experienced had they tried to resolve the legal issue themselves. Obviously every member and usage situation is different, but when used correctly, your membership can easily save significant amounts of money. Not to mention savings from our member perks.
