Unbundled Family Law Services

If you are interesting in having an attorney help you with particular aspects of your case but do not wish to retain an attorney on all issues, unbundled family law services (otherwise known as Limited Scope Representation) may be the perfect solution.

Unbundled family law services were created as a means to mitigate the high cost of legal fees associated in a given case. It allows you, the client, to drive your own case forward as a self-represented party while obtaining legal services as needed. For example, if you need assistance with technical issues such as pensions, stock options, and business interests, you can hire an attorney as your consultant to answer your questions related to the law as it applies to those particular issues. You may also hire an attorney for unbundled family law services to assist you with drafting legal documents, negotiating with an opposing counsel, or even having an attorney represent you in Court on a particular issue.

Here at Mello & Pickering, LLP, we can represent you on any particular issue you request. In doing so, we can help you minimize your litigation costs by giving you assistance in only those areas that you need.
