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 lawyer 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 lawyer 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 lawyer handle the situation for you.

Whatever your circumstances, having access to a LegalShield provider lawyer 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 lawyer to help with adoption, name change and more.

Frequently asked questions

What is a pre-paid legal plan and how does it work?

Instead of paying a lawyer by the hour, you pay a small fee (starting at $26.95/month) and have access to an independent lawyer that will provide a huge variety of legal services without a huge legal bill. Services like consultation with a lawyer, 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.

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 lawyer 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 a lawyer and begin to use the plan benefits and member perks outlined in the membership agreement right away.

How much can I save with a membership?

The average lawyer in the U.S. charges between $150-$400 per hour. If you use your membership for even just a few hours a year you could easily save over $1,000. If you have a bunch of small legal issues or one rather complicated issue, you can easily save multiple thousands of dollars over hiring a lawyer directly. Not to mention the stress you’ll save by having a lawyer on call instead of trying to handle legal issues yourself. Also, the lawyers 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 a personal plan?

Our Personal Plans are really family plans. You, your spouse or partner and your eligible dependents living at home, on select plans, are covered under one membership.
