What Is Limited Assistance Representation?
Sometimes a person is capable of preparing the paperwork for their uncontested divorce or filing their documents for enforcing their child support order on their own. They may feel like they do not need to hire an attorney for legal help. They have everything they need, except for the confidence that they have the right documents and understand the complete process. This is when seeking an attorney for limited representation is useful. Limited assistance representation (LAR) is when someone hires a lawyer for help with a specific element of their legal matter such as reviewing their documents, legal advice, document preparation or a court appearance.
Attorney Erica M. Foster is licensed to practice law in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and offers limited assistance representation for all types of family law cases, including – but not limited to – divorce, custody, visitation and parenting plans, child support, asset division and alimony.
The Benefits Of Limited Assistance Representation
One of the primary benefits of limited assistance representation is that you control how and when your attorney will provide legal services. If you are just seeking document preparation, Erica will prepare your legal documents accurately, legibly and completely. She can provide legal advice and prepare the documents for only that portion of the case for which you require her services.
Another benefit is that you have flexible payment options. You may pay as you go or you may pay a retainer depending upon the complexity of the matter. Erica charges an hourly rate and may collect a retainer after determining the level of assistance you are seeking.
