How can I find low-cost legal help for my family law problem?
Last reviewed in March 2019 by the Clicklaw Editors

Many people cannot afford to hire a lawyer from the beginning to end of their legal case or issue. If you have a legal problem and a limited budget, unbundled legal services may be the low-cost help you need. With unbundling, you can hire a lawyer for only part of your legal matter. Unbundling lets you control how much you spend on lawyer’s fees.

Unbundled Legal Services from People’s Law School helps you learn more about unbundling, including:

  • How it works
  • Whether it is a good fit for you
  • How to find a lawyer that offers unbundled services
You can also use Clicklaw HelpMap’s Family Law Unbundling Roster to find family lawyers and paralegals offering unbundled services near you.
