Whether to have this hearing at the District Magistrate level or not is up to the client. As the client you are the one to choose whether you will have this hearing or whether you decide against it. Our job is to provide you counsel; our job is not to make your decisions for you. Call MATTHEW C. PARSON, ATTORNEY AT LAW for your legal needs.
Try to remember that this system is designed to determine who is a criminal and to punish that person by putting him/her in a cage for a long time. These people, while they may be kind to you and encourage you to talk, are not your friends.
Lots of people ask what we charge, friends. For your reference, we are mid-level in terms of rates in the area. For example, divorces range from $500 for a straight, no fault divorce, up to $2,000 if you’d like to add services, such as equitable distribution, or child custody.
