Limited Representative in New Hampshire Divorces

Legal assistance and guidance is recommended for virtually every legal situation. This is particularly true when it comes to matters in the family law court system, although full-time representation may not be needed or affordable for some. In New Hampshire, limited representation is an option when legal services are warranted but keeping an attorney on retainer isn’t feasible or necessary. The limited representation options at the Law Office of Joseph M. Annutto can help clients get the help they need on their own terms and at an affordable rate.

The process of securing limited representation starts with an agreement between the attorney and the client. There are basic guidelines and expectations that must be agreed upon before an attorney will go forward. The exact role an attorney will play in a case and what services that attorney will deliver need to be clear for both parties. A fee for the services will also be determined. This kind of representation gives a client the freedom to customize legal services and control the cost of those services.

Types of Limited Representation

There are certain matters in which limited representation is common, including:

  • Advising prior to a hearing
  • Preparation of legal document
  • Counseling as to the legal process
  • Consultations before giving testimony or before a hearing
  • Research of laws and statutes
  • Review of testimony and evidence
  • Representation of a client for part of a court hearing
