Our Fees For Marriage Cases

Canon Law Professionals is committed to providing the highest quality representation for its clients.  Our intent is to allow all members of the Church access to quality canonical services. For our marriage clients, the initial consultation, up to one hour’s time, is free. This allows us to determine if and how we can help you. If you choose to retain our services, our fees are determined at the time our services are requested and are structured to provide fairness and equity.

At the time you retain us, we require a non-refundable retainer equivalent to 5 hours. Thereafter billing will occur on a monthly basis. We know that this is a time of economic hardship for many people. We understand that many may have difficulties paying the fees we have set. We do not wish to dissuade those unable to meet our fees, and we ask that you contact us in order to discuss what might be reasonable for you.  Our fees may be reduced in order to meet the restrictions of the client and we offer some pro bono work to those in need.

Professional Fees
  • Your initial contact and consultation (up to 1 hour) is free of charge.
  • Work done on your case by our canonists is billed at $225 per hour.
  • There is a one-time administration fee to maintain your file of $225.
  • Charges are based on the hourly rate at 15 minute intervals.
  • Long distance charges are covered within office expenses.
  • If travel is necessary (which though possible is rare in marriage cases), it is charged at actual expenses using the most economical means possible.
  • Credit card payments accepted.

All of our fees are expected at the time services are offered. All invoices are expected to be paid within 30 days. All invoices over 30 days are subject to a 2% late fee.

There are no hidden charges intended. Clients are charged only for the services rendered and for the time dedicated to their case. Any concerns or disputes may be raised with the main office. If disputes persist, mediation to solve the dispute will be entered into with an agreed upon, independent mediator.
