Some lawyers now offer unbundled legal services, which means you can pay them to help you with part of your family law problem, and you handle the rest of your case yourself.
Legal Aid BC may pay for your unbundled legal services if you qualify.
An unbundled lawyer:
- meets with you to plan how they can help with your legal problem,
- discusses the tasks you'll pay them for and which ones you'll do on your own,
- works on only the tasks you agree to, and
- charges you for only the agreed tasks.
You and the lawyer can adapt the arrangement to fit your budget and how comfortable you are with handling your own legal matter.
