“Limited Assistance Representation” (LAR) is now available in the Massachusetts Probate and Family Court. Limited representation (also called “unbundling” or “limited scope representation”) allows an attorney to represent a client for one component of his or her legal matter. This is different from traditional legal representation, in which an attorney represents a client in all aspects of the divorce or other family law matter. Limited representation is much more economical and cost-efficient. Rather than paying for months or even years of legal representation, you can seek legal advice for select issues or events. Limited representation can be used for all areas of family law,including divorce, paternity, guardianship and conservatorship matters.
We have the ability to provide limited representation for clients throughout Massachusetts. This may include guiding you through the process of drafting your court documents, appearing in court on a limited basis, negotiating with the opposing party or attorney, or providing you with the ability to advocate your own custody and property division needs.
