Sorting out legal fact from fiction
Can’t make heads or tails of a custody arrangement? Need legal consultation on a separation or divorce? Received a summons and unsure of next steps?
Legal concerns can drain you of precious time, money and energy. They can also cause stress and impact your family, work and life. Take the first step toward resolving your legal issue by getting expert, confidential consultation from your Employee Assistance Program (EAP).
WHAT’S THE CONNECTION TO LEGAL SUPPORT SERVICES?
Your EAP offers a total approach to addressing legal concerns. Professionals will help you address the personal and family-related concerns that are associated with legal issues. They will also connect you to qualified lawyers for professional legal consultation.
Legal consultation will provide a clear explanation of how the law applies to your specific situation and recommend the most appropriate course of action.
HOW CAN THE SERVICE HELP?
EAP services are available on a variety of issues to help you manage legal challenges. Professional legal consultation covers issues such as:
Exceptions include: legal consultation on work-related issues, immigration or tax law, second opinions on another lawyer’s work, and legal guidance for a third party.
WHAT IF IT’S MORE COMPLICATED THAN I THOUGHT?
If your legal issue requires assistance beyond the scope of the professional legal consultation service (e.g., preparation of a will or representation in court) the EAP will help by providing a referral to a qualified lawyer or law firm. You will be responsible for fees incurred if you choose to accept representation from an EAP referred legal service, however, you will receive a preferred rate.
Just a little work ahead of time can make your consultation that much more productive.
Legal consultation is available Monday to Friday during normal business hours. Consultations are free and strictly confidential.
