How to Charge for Family Law Services – Family law attorneys charge fees based on the complexity of the case and the difficulty of proving fault and damages. Most family lawyers don’t charge hourly fees, instead, they charge an annual retainer fee plus a flat percentage of the client’s settlement or award. Family law attorneys typically charge on a contingency basis—you agree to pay the attorney’s fees upfront but you’ll only get paid if you win your case.

Family law attorneys charge differently based on the complexity of the case. They can charge hourly, they can charge by the project, and they can charge on contingency. If a client has an hourly budget and wants to save money, she should be prepared to negotiate a fee structure that doesn’t include contingency fees. You can ask her if she’d be willing to commit to a specific number of hours (or days) for a certain amount of money and she can either agree or she can say no. Once she commits to working a certain number of hours, you can then calculate your fee and ask her to sign a retainer agreement. If you’re using contingency, you should be prepared to spend some money upfront so you can guarantee that you’ll get paid. Contingency agreements typically have a lower fee attached to the percentage of money your lawyer saves you throughout your case, but they also give you a higher percentage of what you save.

In conclusion, it’s important to remember that not all attorneys are created equal. Some are simply better than others, especially when it comes to the service they provide. As such, it’s extremely important to know the type of attorney you need before you engage in a consultation with them. Not only is it important to find a lawyer that understands your needs and will work to your benefit, but you need to be wary of attorneys that promise to win your case or work quickly at a low cost. It’s always wise to check on any potential lawyer’s record before signing on.
