​Unbundled Services: Sometimes a person does not wish to or cannot afford to retain an attorney on a "full service" basis. For instance, a person might feel comfortable completing and filing the paperwork for their divorce, but wishes to hire an attorney to assist them in preparing for and attending a hearing to modify child support. When a person hires an attorney to represent the client on a discrete issue such as above, this is commonly known as obtaining an "unbundled" legal service. The client obtains the specific service the client needs, and the attorney only engages in the service for which the attorney has been hired. This method of obtaining family law legal services can be an effective way for a client to stretch a budget, while feeling confident they are being represented on the specific legal issue with which they need assistance.
