LIMITED ASSISTANCE REPRESENTATION
Patricia is trained and certified to provide Limited Assistance Representation (LAR) in the Probate and Family Court. Even with a relatively simple and straightforward family law matter, court forms and procedures can be confusing and overwhelming. For much less than the typical cost of hiring an attorney, Pat can explain the process, help you understand which documents need to be filed to accomplish your goals, help you prepare documents, review documents you have prepared yourself, and make sure you have the information you need to confidently represent your self.
Typically, a lawyer hired for LAR will draft legal documents for the client to file without the lawyer present for filing or during upcoming hearings. If agreed between the lawyer and the client, the lawyer can also be present during certain aspects of the client’s case in court but not for the entire case.
Clients benefit by retaining some legal help in prosecuting or defending their case. The courts benefit by having properly prepared documents and issues presented in a more clear and concise manner, thus reducing court time and legal fees.
