Attorney Consultation + Help With Forms
When you cannot afford to pay for a lawyer, limited-scope representation can be a great way for you to have legal help with your case while keeping costs down. By only paying a lawyer to do those parts of your case that you cannot do yourself, you can save you money on legal fees and you can keep greater control of your case than if the lawyer handles the entire case
You can just consult a lawyer and get legal information and advice about your case when you need it.
You can hire the lawyer to prepare the forms and other court documents but file them yourself and represent yourself at the hearings.
You can hire the lawyer to coach you on how to represent yourself at the court hearings and help you prepare the evidence that you will present in court.
Courts approve of limited-scope representation because they want to encourage people to get as much legal assistance as they need to protect their rights. They know that you will do a better job of following proper court procedures and presenting the important information to them if you have the help of a lawyer during the more complicated parts of a case.
