My financial planner recently recommended a local attorney

Hello,My financial planner recently recommended a local attorney (Attorney A) to prepare a will/trust/medical directives for my husband and me. Though I'm typically cost-conscious, I failed to research how much this would cost; and I also failed to ask the Attorney A how much he would charge for his services. Three weeks ago, my husband and I met with him for over an hour and thoroughly reviewed the questionnaire for our plan. At the end of the meeting, he advised that he would charge $3,000. A few days later, his assistant emailed the contract agreement to my husband. However, in the meantime, my husband contacted the attorney that had recently prepared his mother's estate plan. This attorney advised that he would charge $900 to prepare the estate plans for both my husband and me. Both attorneys are in the Los Angeles area. In doing cursory internet research, it appears that fees for such services typically range between $1200 and $2500. At this point, I'm reluctant to pay $3000 for services that I could find at a more reasonable cost. However, since Attorney A took his time with us, and sent over his contract, I would like to call him back. At this point, I'm wondering how to handle this situation. Is it acceptable for me to say that I've changed my mind and am going for lower cost services?

This question is for a woman lawyer only: We live in. My

This question is for a woman lawyer only: We live in Virginia. My husband and I are divorcing after 23 years. He has fully supported me financially for the entire marriage. I receive only 600.00 per month from Social Security. He receives approximately 1,500.00 from Social Security and about 1,000.00 from military retirement. He will also receive an inheritance from his mother when she dies (She is now 90 years old). He wants to have an uncontested divorce and give me nothing. I am a senior citizen and past working age. Am I entitled to receive any portion of his income and inheritance? What are my rights?

My 16 year old daughter lives with her mother in state. We

My 16 year old daughter lives with her mother in Washington state. We have been divorced for 7 years. My daughter is under extreme emotional abuse and was very recently told by her mother that the only reasons that she (the mom) isn't committing suicide is because the daughter lives with her. This scares the crap out of me. My ex did try to kill her self right before I met her when in college and was institutionalized for some time. I'm scared about this situation. My daughter has expressed she wants to live with me. How can I help my daughter?

We have a situation that we need some expert advice. We have

Good Morning,We have a situation that we need some expert advice. We have a grandchildren that were left in our care for almost 2 years. There are two children both have the same Mother, different Fathers. When the children were taken away the Mother has been going to classes and doing everything according to the law to get the children back home. However, during several court appearance the Father's were asked to make an appearance and they could not find them. After the last appearance the Father of the oldest was in prison and was served with papers stating he was to be in court. He did not show and at that court appearance he was charged with abandonment. The other Father of the youngest child was found after this court appearance and he was in this prison outside the area for approx. 5 to 6 years. However, when requested to come in they allowed him to travel to the court house and make an appearance. He is the oldest child's Father (test confirmed this) he now fighting us on getting these children permanently. He says he was visitation. He got out on parole on the 26th of August and we are uncomfortable that he was visitation with this child that the most he has seen her is about 4 to 5 time in her life. She is 10 years old and fears seeing him. The last time known that he showed up at the house he was armed and pointed the gum in the face of the Mother and her. We feel that if he was not in prison that he would have never tried to contact or ask for visitation. What we feel here is a Father that has been in the picture for years that was charged with abandonment and this person that has not seen her for years, since she was 3 years old can get the rights to be with this child that fears him. It is not what is right for the child, we are saying what is right for the parent. How can we get this to be changed around, so that he can not see her. If she has to see him can we say that it has be be a period of time before we even setup a meeting, like 6 months. At that point he may be back in prision. He has been in and out for three to four times. What is the child's and our rights?
