Informative, Professional yet Affordable Consultations:

SSFS: Sliding Scale Fee Structure:
The purpose of the Sliding Scale Fee Structure is to simply reflect that while people have different ability to afford legal services (as their household income and circumstances differ), all people should have the opportunity to access professional legal services in full or in part. Unlike the LSP (Legal Services Packages) option, this option is usually chosen by suitable clients who wish to retain a lawyer to represent them throughout their case. Your individual hourly rate will be calculated when you have your initial consultation.
LSP: Legal Services Packages
It is a fact that nearly all the litigants in Family Court today cannot afford legal advice, representation and assistance with document preparation. This is usually due to the disparity between household incomes and the cost of services offered by most law firms. We are confident that with our initiatives, you will be able to gain the benefit of professional legal assistance experienced strictly in Family Law at an exceptionally reasonable and affordable cost.
Limited scope retainers and unbundling of legal services
Under a limited scope retainer, also known as an “unbundling” agreement, a lawyer or paralegal provides legal services for part, but not all, of a client’s legal matter, by agreement with the client. Unbundling can be an affordable option for people who don’t qualify for legal aid, can’t afford a lawyer for their entire matter, or might otherwise choose to represent themselves.
Cost of a package: The cost of a package will typically run from between $500 and $1200 plus HST and disbursements. Although some packages are more and some less. This will all be determined with your first meeting with one of our lawyers.
We also offer valuable additional support services such as correspondence/s, order interpretation/drafting, coaching, research and more.
AGSLAW is a client-focused law firm
In the sea of available law firms for your choosing, AGSLAW is truly unique. As most law firms you will come across, AGSLAW offers Family Law services provided by our professional lawyers and supported by our wonderful staff. However, what makes AGSLAW different is the fact that AGSLAW is a client-focused law firm. For the clear majority of people needing Family Law assistance, it is not an option to receive the adequate help they need and deserve simply because it is unaffordable. Most firms are unaffordable to the public and that is why we see that most of the litigants in Family Court are not assisted by a lawyer. We have intentionally set up our firm in a unique and innovative way to afford you the opportunity to get the advice, representation, support and help that you need in an affordable, reasonable and flexible manner. That, is the AGSLAW difference.
