How do I get started?
Request a free 30-minute consultation, so that we can understand your situation and best address your needs.
Then, once we sign an agreement, we proceed with one of the following:
- For a pre-filing divorce financial assessment, we review your finances, analyze future possibilities, and discuss your potential risks of filing for divorce. The pre-filing assessment is a one-time fee. Then you have the option to continue on an hourly basis if you or your spouse file for divorce (see the next bullet point).
- If you or your spouse have already filed for divorce, a divorce financial assessment first requires us to communicate with your attorney. Alongside your attorney, we provide our assessment services to you throughout the divorce process on an hourly basis.
- For alternative dispute resolution services (“ADR”) (i.e., mediation or collaborative divorce), your spouse must also agree on ADR. Generally, Tennessee and many other jurisdictions require ADR before a judge hears disputed issues. Thus, if you prefer, we can contact your spouse to explain ADR and its benefits.
- For other services, we will proceed based on discussions during the initial consultation.
Do you provide services outside Nashville?
We can work in any jurisdiction within the United States, including the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and Guam.
Except for ADR, we can generally work remotely through calls and emails. For any travel required outside Nashville and its surrounding counties, we require reimbursement of the travel costs.
What are your fees?
An initial, 30-minute consultation is always free.
A divorce financial assessment, if a divorce has not yet been filed, is a flat fee. Otherwise, fees are generally hourly, with an initial deposit payable upfront. For ADR, fees are shared equally between you and your spouse. Please call for specific rates and other questions about fees.
