What most people do is go off and hire a lawyer way too soon
Then this a happens:
Spouses stop communicating
The demanding, intimidating and provoking lawyer letters start going out
Fears hijack rational thought
Court Dates are set
Now your costs are out of control, and you’re caught up in a system you can’t get out. There will be a winner and a loser.
What I do;
In an Early Neutral Consultation, I will answer questions and bring the separating couple together with a common focus. One of the main benefits of the Early Neutral Consultation is you both hear the information together, minimizing the possibility of conflict often created by solo information gathering.
I charge $299 for a 2 Hour ENC. If the only thing you got from an ENC was how Equitable Asset and Liability Equalization / Division works, it’d be worth it right? What about strategies to minimize your separation and divorce costs and take the financial sting out of a divorce, is that not worth coming in for an ENC? Then there is Child & Spousal Support, and the various settlement options available to you, by itself would that not be worth knowing. In the end, if the only thing you got from an ENC was how you and your former spouse viewed the issues after hearing from the Mediator, it’d be worth it.
I believe so strongly in the value and power of an Early Neutral Consultation it comes with a 7-Day Money Back Guarantee.
The Early Neutral Consultation is structured to save you time, money, and stress by laying down a forward direction on a foundation of cooperation and understanding.
