Montebello Family Law Attorney
Attorney's fees are always negotiable and the Law Offices of Beatriz Pelayo-Garcia prides itself on offering community attorney rates of $350 to $650 per hour, depending on the complexity of the case. Your case will require an original retainer which will vary from $3,000 to $5,000. While no attorney can estimate of the total amount of attorney fees since it often depends on the actions of the other party, the attorney and client will regularly meet to determine the most cost-effective and necessary services. The Law Firm of Beatriz A. Pelayo Garcia performs its legal services while being cognizant of the client's financial situation.
In order to initiate a divorce, legal separation, annulment or paternity case, the Los Angeles Superior Court requires a fee of between $435.00 to $535.00 per party.
For a court hearing for temporary orders including child custody, child support or spousal support, attorney's fees or any other issues, the Court requires a fee of about $40.00 in Los Angeles County. In certain circumstances when a party is considered "low income", the court can waive these initial costs. However, the majority of individuals are expected to pay their own court costs.
During this valuable and important conversation with the attorney, you will be able to discuss your questions and concerns. If you are in the process of a divorce or other family law matter, please bring all your court documents with you to maximize the benefit of this experience.
