A reasonable amount ranges between $40 to $70 an hour depending on the level of care that must be provided. You must keep a log of your hours and the tasks you completed. Then the log is submitted to the court for approval. The level of care determines what is reasonable. If the individual cannot dress themselves, bathe, change clothes, etc., then that warrants a higher rate.

If you must administer medicines, or feeding tubes, or anything requiring advanced medical care, that would warrant a higher hourly rate.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
