Legal aid can come in a variety of formats. The most comprehensive is through a retainer agreement, where the family attorney assists with all aspects of the case, from going to court to document preparation to negotiating settlements. Next comprehensive is an "unbundled" set fo legal services, where the family law attorney is responsible for a set of tasks you choose (such as attendance at a particular court hearing), but nothing more. This is sometimes called, "Limited Scope Representation." The least comprehensive (but most economical) form of representation is simply an agreement with your family law attorney to have him or her (or a staff member) prepare paperwork on your behalf. The Maloof Law Group, APC can assist you in any of these capacities, according to your needs.
