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
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
restrictions of the client and we offer some pro bono work to those in
- 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
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.
