Divorce is scary business, especially when there is a child involved. Parents are hiring attorneys with the belief that the attorney is going to protect them. Your attorney will NOT protect your rights the way you think they will. You think you can just pay them a retainer and forget about your case, that the attorney will take care of everything, and that’s it. You might even think that the first retainer will pretty much take care of it. It won’t. If you are a in a high conflict child custody battle you could be fighting for many years if you don’t know how to frame your case, and if you don’t know what to ask for and what not to ask for. You think you can go on with business as usual, carry on with your life, and just trust that your attorney is going to protect you from any loss of time with your child, loss of money and assets, and that your attorney will take care of you and protect you and your child. The average contested divorce is $77,000. And the majority of the time, the parent that thinks like this and thinks that the judge just has to hear the truth and everything will be alright is the parent that gets screwed, is the parent that ends up a visitor in their child’s life, paying child support and sometimes even alimony.
You might even think that everything will be wrapped up in about 6 to 9 months and that your retainer is enough to finish the divorce process. Or you might tell yourself that maybe the next several thousands of dollars you pay to refresh the retainer will get you a final divorce decree and parenting plan. The first retainer in a contested divorce is just to get you invested in the process with that attorney. It will cost you more, most likely much, much more. And in the end, it doesn’t seem to matter how much you paid, the results are the same. And if you run out of money, your attorney will drop you, perhaps after a last ditch effort to get you to agree to something you didn’t want in the first place before they drop off your case if you don’t. Once both parties are out of money, the attorneys usually try to quickly get the two of you to agree to the standard possession order with one parent as primary custodial parent or conservator and you as the visiting parent, noncustodial joint managing conservator, and close the case. Each state has a different label for primary and visitation, and different labels for the parents, but it all boils down to one thing, one of you will be a custodial parent with all the say (even if your final divorce decree or order says you have joint decision making if you take something back to court when the two of you don’t agree usually the court will default to the parent who has primary and who has the majority of the physical custody time). [NOTE: If you did not understand any of the parenting labels in this paragraph, you need to become a member. Not understanding the language you will hear in the court could make the difference as to whether you get out of court with an order you can live with or with an order that is going to be the source of continued litigation where you get dragged back into court over and over again throughout the entire rest of your child’s young life.]
You might have never dreamed that the divorce process could last years and years and cost thousands and thousands, cost more than you owe on your house, and create debts and financial responsibilities for you that could last a lifetime. You might think, “Surely, my attorney wouldn’t let this happen.” This isn’t LA Law, Perry Mason, or some other fanciful TV program, your attorney will simply go through the motions and consume your money. Your attorney really is just a player in this, they don’t even try to stop it, they just walk you right into it and hold your hand while you get screwed if you’re lucky. We’ve talked to more parents who have felt alone and abandoned throughout this process even when they have an attorney! This membership site is designed to make you aware of the pitfalls and processes that do this to you and some ideas about how you might try to avoid become the next victim.
Here is how your loss of rights first start. First your attorney asks the judge to use his/her power to make decisions for you when you and your soon-to-be ex cannot agree. They are asking the judge to use what the attorneys call “discretion.” Next, the attorneys might suggest expensive evaluators, counseling, and even perhaps an attorney to represent your child’s best interest. It all sounds reasonable right? Wrong! You need someone who knows what is really happening to see what the real cost of all of this could be. We always tell everyone that every request you make to your attorney carries dollar figures with it. Become a member and learn about what will cost you money before you spend, and how to stay in control of what your money is spent on. Become a member here today. MEMBERSHIP
Ask the court to decide, you have to pay a retainer to your attorney to make this request. Ask the court to order custody evaluations or social studies, you have to pay for these; this could run anywhere from $1,500 dollars to, we have heard as high as, $70,000 dollars. Ask the court to appoint an amicus or a guardian ad litem (GAL) and this cost in some states is unlimited. You pay the GAL or amicus the same rate as you would pay an attorney in your area, anywhere from $200 to $400 an hour. You will not know how many hours they will spend. You will have difficulty getting them off your case. And if you run out of money, you could be threatened with jail time when you can no longer pay. And this is just the beginning. There is more, there is other discovery, interrogatories, depositions, etc. The cost just continues to rise. And that’s just the financial cost. We won’t get into the emotional cost on this post.
Often the attorney ad litem or GAL simply end up being another party fighting against you, who ironically you pay. You will have to pay for this attorney on everything you file. It is just like paying for a third attorney. They will charge you to read and respond to every motion and to attend every hearing you request. You will pay for them to make suggestions to the court even if the suggestion is that you don’t get custody of your children, or even that you have supervised visitation even though you are perfectly fit and have never done anything wrong. You will pay them to talk to your children and to replace your decision making with their own. And if you don’t pay them many states have laws that allow the judge to put you in jail for not paying them. They will respond to every filing, meaning your attorney will have to deal with their responses and will run up your bill doing so. You will be paying for two attorneys whether you are able to or not.
Because we have seen this re-play too many times, we have set up a member site where you can get the support you need and information about the process (strategies, tactics, alternatives, solutions, organizational tips, tools, etc.) when you need it. You can access all of this as often as you want any day of the week, any time you want. Have no doubt, you will need this information.
If you wouldn’t go to your doctor without having done any research on possible diagnoses and treatment options, then why are you doing this with your attorney? You have a stop loss with your doctor by having insurance. You don’t have that with an attorney. There are no caps on how much your attorney can charge you or how much your judge can impose on you. Do your homework with your case or pay a bigger price than you ever dreamed.
It’s not enough to find a friend or a referral to an attorney. The law is a bigger gamble than medical and you have no insurance to cover you for the catastrophic expense. Become a member and have the most up-to-date most well-researched information there is on the market today. In fact, nobody else can have this information, we have designed our courses and materials ourselves and what we write in our books comes from our original research. We have applied our experience with simplifying, analyzing, and sythesizing information. Ron B Palmer has experience simplifying one complex business problems and crafting solutions from his 20 plus years of experience working as a consultant in ITIL, creating examination questions, and writing the first study guide for the ITIL foundations examination. His book was used in a master’s course in Dallas University that he and his friend created together. Attorneys want you to think that you can only go to attorneys to learn about the divorce process and they want you to only go to them so that they can continue their lies and continue to cheat you out of your rights. As long as you don’t know how to protect your rights they can take advantage of you and your money. Learn how to stay in control of your rights in our membership site. And learn why your rights are important. Without rights you would have no say in your child’s life. Without rights the judges and attorneys can do as they please, tell you what to do, take whatever money and assets they want. Oh yeah, that is what they are doing and that’s why you are here. Well hopefully you are here before they have done this, but if you are here because you have experienced it and you want to try and turn things around, this membership site has information and education for you too.
