It’s no doubt that at some point in their life, everyone will need the services of an Attorney. Even the simplest legal help can be very expensive. Whether you need to review a contract, obtain a divorce, a letter written on your behalf, a will written to protect your assets, or even ask for legal advice most people can’t afford the Attorney fees that are often necessary to remedy their legal situation.
A growing number of people today are turning to an inexpensive form of preventive legal insurance called PrePaid legal.
PrePaid legal works much in the same way as your Health, Dental or even Car insurance. When you buy car insurance, you pay a monthly fee based on your driving record, age, etc. As long as you pay your monthly premium, you’re protected under that insurance policy in case of an auto accident.
With a PrePaid legal insurance plan you also have a monthly premium, it works the same way. Lawyers are available for you and your family in case you need them – in some cases 24 hours a day.
One of the most distinguishable differences between a PrePaid legal insurance plan and other forms of insurance is that your monthly premium never goes up no matter how often you use it. This means that you are able to use your provider law firm as much as you feel it it’s necessary and anytime you have a question.
Some employers offer PrePaid legal insurance as a fringe benefit. Employers understand the burden that a legal problem can place on their employees. It almost always leads to less productivity and loss of focus on work. You may want to check with your employer to see if it’s available. If it’s not available where you work, you can usually request it or obtain it individually.
Although Attorney hourly rates at an all-time high and the cost of a retainer fee is unmentionable for most people, at some point everyone needs the legal advice or legal help. But, before you decide on a particular company or Prepaid legal plan, do your due diligence and make sure you’re dealing with a reputable company rather than a fly-by-night startup and be positive that the particular PrePaid legal plan is right for you and your family.
