Kiner Legal Group
Our experience with Kiner Legal group...We have some legal issue that seemed overwhelming. After trying to figure out on our own which direction to take we figured the court system was to much for us to handle and we needed professional advice, at the least. On October 19, 2015 we googled lawyers in our area and went to see Mr Russ Kiner for a free consultation. He seemed like a guy that would get things done, after about 15 minutes he looked at me and said "you need me" and I thought yes we do!! Over the next two days I begged and borrowed to come up with the $2500 retainer which I brought to him on October 21, 2015....and then we waited and waited and then we wondered what was going on. We had dropped off additional paperwork from the other lawyers during this time and still nothing. Not a single word! Our court date had come and gone with not a single word from our lawyer so we called the office for information or at least an update on what was going on. We were told over and over that Mr Kiner was busy and would call us back. This went on for over a week when we decided that we no longer needed his services since he didn't appear to be doing anything anyways AND we were being told that he was to busy for us. So after 7 weeks exactly and after having to call and stop by the office multiple times to pick up the retainer check it was only for $1500. So they kept $1000! The office of Kiner Legal group charged us $1000 to do absolutely nothing!!! Mr Kiner couldn't even return our phone call and let us know what was going on, if he was working on our case or anything. This was my first experience with a lawyer and the absolute worst experience ever. I could understand him keeping any of our money for work he had done and yes I understand we signed a contract, we signed the contract after he promised us to work for us and to help us navigate thru the court system but it turned out that after our initial conversation and after we signed the contract and after we brought him a large amount of money we meant nothing to him, we didn't even deserve a return phone call. So very disappointed with our whole experience at Kiner Legal group. 
Tips & Advices
Each state has different mandates on how child support is determined. But there are some basic factors that underline how costs are determined in each state, including:
  • Income level of parent that needs to pay support (in the case of joint custody, the costs are determined by income of each party and the percentage of time the child spends with each parent)
  • Financial needs of child
  • Child’s standard of living before the divorce occurred
This is a divorce in which one party does not have to prove that the other’s actions lead to a deterioration of the marriage. The reason for divorce is listed as "irreconcilable differences" or an "irreparable breakdown of the marriage,” meaning the marriage was no longer working and could not be repaired.
Family law attorneys are helpful in cases where the two parties are not on amicable terms. The lawyers can act as intermediaries between the two parties and help them come to any settlement agreements, however long that may take. Lawyers can also help parties navigate tricky state laws regarding settlement agreements and child custody, thus expediting the process.
A contested divorce is one in which the parties cannot agree on either the necessity of the divorce as a whole, or how assets (money, property, etc.) and child custody should be split between them in the divorce. An uncontested divorce is when the parties are in agreement on how assets and child custody will be split between them. These divorces can sometimes be handled without hiring a lawyer.
It is possible for a couple to get a divorce without hiring a family law attorney. If the two parties are in agreement on how finances, child custody, properties, etc., will be split, then they can file the necessary court documents themselves and avoid the services of a lawyer.
