Christie Lea Thompson

About

Through ChristieLegal, I, Christie Lea Thompson, provide efficient, affordable, & friendly paralegal services in family law - divorce, custody, grandparent visitation, & child support modification. I inform client(s) of their choices for how to divorce, if necessary, I refer them to a mediator for help reaching an agreement or an attorney for legal advice regarding how to divorce, I write documents, I help them file and, if necessary, serve the documents, and, if they would like, then I prepare them for court. My fee is $75 per hour. My deposit is $1,00 to $3,000, depending upon how much work the case will likely require. I offer a 20% discount for teachers, law enforcement / corrections officers, social services and mental health workers, Service Members and Veterans, college students, & low-income folks. I also sell life insurance as Foresight Insurance Services. I'm an independent agent, so I shop around to find each client the best policy at the best price. It's a good idea to have your divorce or custody agreement state that the parent who's paying child support must obtain a life insurance policy with a death benefit of at least $250,000 with the other party as the beneficiary since, if that parent were to die, then the other parent wouldn't receive child support payments any longer and Social Security Survivors benefits are minimal. I work for folks whom live throughout MN. I'm able to meet in-person with some folks whom live outside of T. C. on certain days. Reviews by Past Clients: - My ex and I worked with Christie to write our divorce decree in 2015. It was a difficult time but she made it less painful. She was prompt, fair, has personal and professional experience, and did a healthy amount of questioning to be sure my ex and I knew what we wanted. This is the way to go if you don't want to get lawyers involved and is definitely more affordable. Amy Anderson, Minneapolis, MN, August 27, 2017 - I highly recommend Christie Thompson, paralegal, as a highly skilled family law professional. Christie was a godsend in assisting my ex-husband and I to achieve an amicable, inexpensive, and speedy divorce. Her meticulous work on our divorce petition was deemed impeccable by the judge, which meant we did not need to set a court date since our divorce was accepted on the first proposal. I am very grateful for her ability to bring a calm resolution at a difficult time. Deborah Cavitt, St. Paul, MN, July 15, 2014 - Christie is professional, thorough and overall great at what she does. I am thankful that we were able to use Christie as the process was respectful and collaborative. Our documents were in order quickly and Christie's pricing was very reasonable. Talley Flora, Edina, MN, June 28, 2018 - Christie worked with me through this most difficult process. She explained everything and made this whole thing less painful to me. I would recommend Christie to anyone who goes through this. Mary Fercello-Mann, Cottage Grove, MN, June 25, 2018 - Christie helped me A LOT with my twin daughters . Very affordable AND professional! I recommend her to all single parents!

Thank you very much for your review, Talley! Yes, working together to reach an agreement is much more respectful than a judge telling you how to divide your assets and share your child. That's 1 of the reasons that I encourage people to reach agreements outside of the courtroom.
