Andy from private IP /all The most efficient family law intake form of all time I get a lot of calls and Yelp leads, so I figured I would start standardizing my intake process. Here is a script I came up with a few months ago to email back in response to someone's Yelp inquiry, and I've been using it ever since: --- Thanks for your message. I need to ask you a few background questions in order to determine whether your case is a fit for my practice. If you aren't able to call, please provide answers to the following questions: 1. Date of marriage (month and year) 2. Date of separation (month and year) 3. Number and ages of minor children from this marriage 4. What do you do for a living? 5. What does the other party do for a living? 6. What are your annual earnings? 7. What are the other party's annual earnings? 8. Do you own any significant property or assets together, such as real estate, large bank accounts, retirement accounts, etc.? 9. What do you think the issues in your case will be? Support? Property division? Reimbursements? Attorney fees? Child custody and visitation? All of the above? I appreciate your taking the time to let me know the answers when possible. Feel free to call or email, at your option, and I'll get back to you promptly to let you know whether there is an alignment here. --- This form helps me determine quickly whether a particular case is of interest to me and would financially work for the client. Obviously, the bigger and more complex the answers are to 6-9, the more interested I am in the case. But these are just screening questions; I still need to meet or talk with the client in depth to determine that they are rational, reasonable, and flexible. It's worked well so far. _reply Wed, 07 Feb 2024 11:13:43 -0800
DSE from private IP /all I quit family law in March 2021. I would rather close my practice than have to go back to family law again. _reply Wed, 07 Feb 2024 11:14:39 -0800
Andy from private IP /all I spend half my time on civil and half on family law. If I did all family law, I would be in the freaking loony bin by now. _reply Wed, 07 Feb 2024 11:16:09 -0800
moisture2 from private IP /all what makes doing family law so bad? _reply Wed, 07 Feb 2024 11:21:34 -0800
Andy from private IP /all @moisture2Test It's highly emotionally charged, clients (or opposing parties) can be really difficult, opposing attorney is often neurotic, it's not always economical to represent someone, stakes are high, victories are small, defeats are huge, nobody thanks you, and everybody is angry at the result. That doesn't even cover all of it, but that's off the top of my head. _reply Wed, 07 Feb 2024 11:33:29 -0800
shithead from private IP /all I do only affirmative immigration now, mostly self petitions for hypereducated and/or wealthy people. My intake is a streamlined work of wonder. _reply Wed, 07 Feb 2024 11:34:51 -0800
Andy from private IP /all @shitheadTest Is the genius visa as tough to get as they say, or is it handed out like hooker calling cards in Vegas? _reply Wed, 07 Feb 2024 12:03:23 -0800
moisture2 from private IP /all Have either of you had any family law cases involving transgenders? _reply Wed, 07 Feb 2024 12:11:18 -0800
Andy from private IP /all @moisture2Test Not yet, I've had one or two same-sex couples, though. _reply Wed, 07 Feb 2024 12:19:43 -0800
shithead from private IP /all Genius visa? Not sure which one you mean. "Extraordinary ability" is the standard for both EB-1A and O-1 visas. EB-1A is an immigrant visa, meaning green card; whereas O-1 is a nonimmigrant visa. I know how to write for both of them, although I can't spin extraordinary ability out of pure schlubbery.
