Fees are based on your ability to pay. Afterwards, you will have no ability to pay your regular bills. You see, you have to turn over all of your financial information to your lawyer. He then takes all your finances. Case closed.
I do not believe that the attorneys base their fees on your ability to pay. Their fees are based on a lot of factors, including how much time has to be devoted to your case, in court and out; but your salary is not one of those factors.
Lostinspace: You obviously had a crappy lawyer. I’ve NEVER heard of a lawyer taking your finances and taking all your money. I believe if you want to discuss your obvious emotional issues, you should use the other Forum. The last couple of questions you’ve posted to here have been very unhelpful for someone looking for sound answers.
MOM42KIDS: Usually a lawyer has a set retainer made for certain cases. My ‘divorce’ required a $1500 retainer at the time. That was based on the expected amount of hours it would take to see the case through. That money was put in a trust and the lawyer paid herself from that trust as she billed her hours. I got copies of each ‘billing’, and knew exactly what was being billed and how much was left in the trust. At the end, if there was any money left, I got it back. If it went over, I had to pay her hourly fee. Any fees charged to the opposing party were dealt with directly with them. I was not charged for those.
Hope that helps. Each case is different, but a retainer is typical.
