Family law practices can easily overwhelm even the most diligent and committed attorneys, whether it’s managing an extensive case load or counseling clients through difficult personal moments. Experienced paralegal support allows you to delegate critical aspects of your practice, so that you can better manage your workload, and is an affordable alternative to hiring on-site legal support.
Equivity provides carefully vetted, US-based virtual paralegals and legal secretaries with years of experience providing attorneys with comprehensive family law support. Our family law paralegals can assist you at each step of the client relationship from beginning to end, including client intake, document collection and discovery, motion practice, and, if necessary, trial. They can also assist with simple and complex matters of dissolution of marriage, adoption, child custody, child support, modification, and prenuptial and postnuptial agreements.
All virtual paralegals are Equivity employees, not independent contractors, so you get the accountability, privacy, and security guarantees of a dedicated employee while avoiding payroll, workers’ compensation, benefits, and recruiting costs.
Our service is flexible and adaptable to the needs of your practice. We offer a wide range of scalable plans, allowing you to increase or decrease your hours as needed. If you’re looking for a retainer-style arrangement, select our annual plan, which allows you to use hours over the course of 365 days. Busier than expected? Not a problem. You can always add more hours and we’re happy to add new paralegals to your team.
