Rates, Retainers and Additional Information
We are one of the very few firms that offer true flat fees for Family Law. We feel hourly fees encourage inefficiency because there is no incentive to improve, and the client ultimately pays for that lack of efficiency. We want to change the way legal services are delivered, and we want every client to have a great experience and be excited to refer their friends and family to us.

12 Questions Answered
- Q. Ex and I live in different states. I have custody, he gets visitation rights. Can I move to a different state with kids?
- A: Good question. It really depends on the agreement that you came to with your ex when you moved away. If there is any restriction about moving to any state other than TN, then obviously it would be an issue. Realistically, there should be no impact on your ex if you are paying for the plane tickets anyway, but he may be opposed to you moving in with your boyfriend with the kids and could make a bigger issue of it. Something like this is very fact-specific so someone would need to understand the background and review the agreement to give you a more informed answer. In general, moving states with kids when there is a court order in place is complicated unless both parents are in agreement on the move. You should definitely speak to an attorney (or more than one) to get a better idea.
- Q. If a Father signed over his rights in NH under false pretenses by the mother, Is there a way for him to get visitation?
- A: If the case where this happened was in NH originally and the kids still live in NH, this would be a NH case and the laws may be slightly different. In general, unless there was something in the written agreement he probably doesn't have much of an argument, unfortunately. Obviously, every case is different and this is a complicated issue, so there is no way to give a black and white answer without reading the court order and finding out more information. You may want to reach out to a few attorneys in NH to discuss the details and ask if they have handled cases like this before.
- Q. Does a quitclaim deed (signed after divorce) take precedence over a divorce agreement in MA?
- A: That is really hard to say without knowing the specifics of the Separation Agreement that was signed as part of the divorce or divorce judgment if it was decided by a judge. It isn't all that uncommon for one spouse to stay in the home until the kids finish school and then the house sold at that time and the equity divided. If that was supposed to happen, it should be clearly stated in your agreement. These types of issues are very fact-specific though, you should speak with an attorney (or more than one) who could tell you your rights and any obligations you may have regarding the house.
