Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost to resolve a family law matter?

No one should have to spend their children’s college fund or their life savings on a divorce! We have modest retainers that are based on the complexity and difficulty of your case. We also accept cash, check, and major credit cards. We will always look for the most cost-effective way to help you achieve your goals. Sometimes going to Court is necessary, but it also tends to be the most expensive way to resolve a legal issue. Our experience and training in negotiation and mediation, can help to resolve your case early, and often far less expensively than having a trial.

How long does it take for a family law matter to be resolved?

Our experience tells us that you can wait more than two years in Brevard County to have a trial to resolve your case. But life is too short to spend your valuable time fighting in the legal system! We know the financial and emotional cost for families spending two or more years in conflict, and we think that this is far too long to spend caught up in the legal system. We know that focused time and effort at the beginning of your case can help resolve it quickly, before things get out of hand. Our experience also tells us that early interventions such as mediation and/or settlement conferences can give you the opportunity to resolve your case in months, rather than in years.
