What Is Your Hourly Rate and How Will I Get Billed? 

  • By:Karpenski & Schmelkin

When you retain an attorney, you will be required to pay a retainer fee. All time spent on your case by your attorney as well as support staff will be billed against that retainer using the appropriate hourly fee, and you will be provided with monthly statements showing what has been billed. If the retainer fee is exhausted before your divorce is finished, you will need to replenish it.
