Get Divorced With Less Hassle and Conflict

Even if your divorce is uncontested and relatively low drama, making long-term decisions 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. Divorce can require you to assemble financial information, file documents 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, having access to a LegalShield provider attorney for child custody, child support, and related family matters can help you rest easier.

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 is a big decision. 

Eliminate all stressing and guessing by getting a LegalShield legal plan. For one small monthly fee you can have access to a provider attorney to help with adoption, name change, and more.

Divorce with children is never easy, especially for the children. Having a provider firm that is caring and empathetic towards my personal situation has taken a bit of the burden and stress off me. That has freed me up to be the mom I want to be for my children, without the worry of the divorce process. I couldn't be more grateful for the help and support I've received from them! Kudos to such an amazing team of professionals who haven't forgotten the power of human kindness!

Frequently Asked Questions

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.

Who is covered under the Personal Plan?

Our Personal Plan is really a family plan. You, your spouse or partner and your dependents living at home are covered under one membership.
