Consultations

What Can You Expect in Your Consultation?

We know and understand that selecting the right Attorney to help you during this difficult time in your life is a very hard and important process. That is why during your initial consultation with Bay Area Family Law Center, you will feel the genuine desire our Family Law Attorneys have to help you. You will meet with one of our experienced Attorneys, who will gather detailed information about your case and suggest the best path and direction. We will explain all the different and often complicated aspects of the law, as they pertain to your Family Law matter. The consultation is your time to, not only get to know our Attorneys, but ask any questions and voice your concerns with the case. In some cases, we will be able to prepare documents for submission to court.

At Bay Area Family Law Center, we believe in providing the best service to our clients and potential clients. Our experience and expertise help us stand out from other Family Law Attorneys. In order to help us understand your case better and in more detail, we offer 3 types of consultations:

  • 1) Free 15-minute consultation
  • 2) Paid 30-minute consultation
  • 3) Paid 1-hour consultation.

Why Our 30-60 Minute Family Law Consultations Aren't Free

Generally, when Attorneys offer free consultations, they are only gathering bits and pieces of your case, as their consultations are short. They don’t have time to really provide the right information and/or direction you need. The information you receive in the short free consultations are often based on generalities of the types of cases the Attorneys have dealt with. They don’t take the time to fully listen and understand your case. The Attorneys at Bay Area Family Law Center strongly believe that your time and concern for your case is valuable. That is why it’s important for you to receive an honest consultation with a Family Law Attorney that fully understands the law and how it applies to your specific case, lasting longer than 15-20 minutes. Our Attorneys take the time, usually 1-2 hours, to get to know you and your case, so that you can feel comfortable in making the decision to retain the right Family Law Attorney for your Family Law matter.

What You Need to Bring to Your Consultation

Once you have scheduled a consultation, you will receive an Intake Questionnaire. We ask that you complete the questionnaire prior to your consultation. This will help our Attorneys know some basics about your case, which will help us better address your issues in your case during the consultation.

If your case has not been started yet, during the first meeting with our Attorneys, we ask that you bring the following documents to help us complete any of the required court forms for your case:

  • Any paperwork submitted to court
  • Any paperwork related to an existing case
  • Current Bank Statements
  • Current Credit Card Statements
  • Latest Tax Returns
  • Paycheck Stubs
  • Any Property Deeds
  • A list of furniture, furnishings, electronics, appliances, etc.
COVID-19 Precautions

We are taking the COVID-19 virus very seriously. As such, at this time, all consultations are conducted over the phone. Upon request we can perform Zoom consultations. Please let a staff member know if you would prefer a Zoom consultation.
