Divorce is not an inexpensive process, and it should come as no surprise that many couples attempt to “cheat the system,” at least from a financial perspective. Most of these couples find, however, that compromising through self-representation and unbundled or a la carte legal services will come back to haunt them. In this blog, we take a look at the hidden pitfalls behind these unbundled legal services.

What Is An Unbundled Legal Service?
Divorce, like many other legal matters, can be highly complex. Individuals and couples will often seek to save money by hiring an attorney for just one part of the process - for example, representing them in court at an upcoming hearing. They will then attempt to either handle other aspects of the divorce on their own, or will seek out another lawyer with a cheaper price to help them with the next step.
What’s Wrong With This Strategy?
As previously stated, divorce is not a simple process. Many aspects of a divorce can impact other aspects – such as how property division can impact child support, and vice-versa. By hiring an attorney for one part of your case, it is very likely that something will fall through the cracks.
Another major drawback to these services is that attorneys who offer them often fail to properly learn about your unique situation, goals, and desired outcome. They may offer you advice that, while not incorrect, does not help you achieve your goals.

Unbundled legal services are, in essence, a compromise. The alternative is to retain one firm to represent you throughout your full case. While this may seem pricier on the surface, the mistakes made with unbundled legal services can be far more expensive in the long run. Equally important is the comfort you’ll receive, knowing that your case is in the hands of an experienced professional who is dedicated to your goals and interests.
