SAVING LEGAL FEES IN MARYLAND DIVORCE & CUSTODY CASES
One of the most expensive portions of any divorce or custody case is the area of “discovery”. Discovery (Maryland Rules 2-401 through 2-434) allows each side to demand answers to up to 30 written questions (interrogatories) and demand a substantial amount of documents (usually financial, social media, communications information) from each party. These interrogatories and request for production of documents are incredibly time consuming both for the client and the attorney. One way to reduce the time expended by the attorney and staff is to (i) complete the discovery as fully as possible (ii) organize and label the documents that you produce and (iii) provide the lawyer’s office with a description of any financial transaction or communication which may be out of the ordinary. Helping you reduce and contain attorney fees during a Maryland divorce or custody case is our goal at the Law Office of Nicholas T. Exarhakis. Call today for a free consultation.
