Affordable Legal Help with Starting Your Divorce

Hiring a lawyer to help with your divorce doesn't have to be expensive. We offer an affordable, flat rate package to provide you with everything you need to start your divorce at a price that fits your budget.

Work with a Lawyer, starting at $100

We serve Oregonians who make up to 400% of the Federal Poverty Level ($103,000 for a family of four) and who meet other qualifications. If you qualify, you'll get expert help filing your Dissolution Petition for a fraction of the cost normally associated with hiring an attorney. Our services are offered on a sliding-scale basis: the amount you pay will depend on your income level.

The Starting Your Divorce Package starts with a navigation session of just $100. If you decide to hire us to prepare, file, and serve your divorce for you, our services begin at an additional $531, with the final rate set based on your income level.  This does not include court filing fees; we can help you determine if you qualify to have court fees waived.

When you purchase this package, you get the following:
