Limited Scope Representation

Sometimes a person has decided to divorce, but their spouse is not willing to participate in a divorce mediation process.  New Day Divorce's Limited Scope Legal Services is another option for a divorcing party to commence divorce proceedings, negotiate a settlement agreement with their spouse and process all the paperwork to finalize an uncontested divorce without litigation.

When a client chooses Limited Scope Legal Services, a family law attorney will provide limited representation in the divorce consisting of specific services selected by the client that  will be performed by the attorney in an uncontested divorce proceeding.  Similar to New Day Divorce flat fee Mediation Services, limited scope legal services are offered using a flat fee for the agreed services.

Limited Scope Services include the following:

  • Drafting Summons and Petition for Dissolution of Marriage and Family Law Declaration for "pro per" filing**
  •  Drafting UCCJEA for filing with children
  •  File and Serve Summons & Petition on Respondent

  •  Prepare Preliminary Declaration of Disclosure (PDD) and Declaration Re: Service of PDD
