What are Unbundled Services?
A lot of times people who are self represented might need help with certain aspects of their case. For instance, you might need help drafting a Modification petition in your custody case. People who are represented by an attorney may also want outside assistance with things like research, firing their lawyer, etc. Unbundled services can help in this instance as well. If you are representing yourself, working on an agreement or resolution with the other party or just want to keep legal costs down by handling portions of your case yourself, Unbundled Services is what you need. We prepare and review documents such as, petitions or complaints, responses or answers, modification/relocation/contempt motions, discovery requests and responses, motions, correspondence, trial memos and much more. We use our professional expertise to ensure that the documents we prepare meet your state’s requirements.
We also provide professional level background and asset searches. Our contractors are licensed private investigators and will provide an in depth investigation to prepare you for custody or divorce trial, mediation or settlement. If you suspect that your ex or soon to be ex is withholding important information or hiding assets, our experienced asset and background search will help you find that information or assets.
Our legal research and judge background searches allows you to prepare an effective claim or defense in your divorce or custody case. We provide extensive caselaw, statute or administrative law research so that you are prepared to argue your position with authority. It is crucial that you research your judge’s previous decisions and other public opinions to have insight on how he or she would rule on important issues like “the best interests of the child”. We can conduct a thorough search of your judge (depending on your state).
We have experienced process servers, in NY & NJ, who will serve any party located within these jurisdictions, no matter where you are. They will provide proof of service pursuant to the laws of your state.
Our Uncontested Divorce is an affordable way to get divorced without incurring excessive lawyer fees. We work closely with you in preparing the necessary documents quickly and efficiently. All issues must be agreed upon to be eligible for Uncontested Divorce but if there is no such agreements, we can help negotiate terms of any part of your divorce with our coaching or consulting services. Uncontested Divorce can save time and money through streamlined court procedures.
The Best Interests of the Child Factors Analysis takes an in depth look a the facts of your case and the factors of your particular jurisdiction and comes up with an analysis to strengthen your argument for or against. Most states have an average of 10-12 factors that the court must examine when it makes a determination about custody, relocation, modification and/or contempt. There is no one size fits all when it comes to custody cases. It is important to have a clear understanding of how the facts of your case measure up to the factors the court must refer to in the process. You can use this analysis to help you word your petitions, to determine when to file for modification and much more.
The Pro Se Trial Folder/Notebook is an extremely valuable resource for the pro se or self represented litigant whose family law case is going to trial. Trial preparation is very important and can be quite overwhelming, it’s a challenge for attorneys let alone the self-represented. The trial folder will provide all the necessary issues, defenses, etc. necessary to put on the best case possible. It will include a personalized Opening Statement, a suggested Witness List, all Exhibits, the pertinent laws/statutes, the opposition’s case, Closing Statement and more. You should NOT proceed to trial/hearing without this resource.
Our Strategic Action Plan (Casemap) is our personalized, comprehensive full out report that will provide everything you need to present your case. This Casemap will include a very thorough analysis of all the relevant issues in your case. I review all relevant documents; conduct extensive caselaw research; cite all pertinent laws, statutes, etc.; verify court status; lookup your assigned judge and their background, years of practice & previous decisions (this varies for each jurisdiction and is subject to the rules of their state); background of other appointed professionals in the case; and more. I use all of this information to analyze your case’s strengths & weaknesses; to develop a strategic plan for your case and to help you prepare for what’s to come. This report is extremely helpful, it’s like having an attorney in your back pocket. You can NOT afford to go a step further in your Family Court case without having this extremely helpful tool.
