Mr. Calder does not represent either party. It is your responsibility to obtain independent legal advice if you have any questions about the substantive law or your rights. This process is intended for simple cases only and is not suitable for individual legal representation in appropriate cases. The fees are “flat fees,” not time-based, so they will not be higher than stated unless you request changes to the paperwork after it is completed, in which cases, a modest revision fee will apply. Fees are considered earned and non-refundable once your paperwork has been prepared regardless of reconciliation of the parties, a party’s refusal to sign the papers, or abandonment of the case.
