Terms and Conditions
If a party who completed a questionnaire or form on https://nevadaannulment.org and subsequently chooses not to pursue the annulment for which they contracted with us by filling out the questionnaire, the party understands that the first payment they have made is non-refundable,, and that the second payment will not be due, and the business transaction between the client and our firm will be considered completed and ended. If a party requests that a questionnaire on https://nevadaannulment.org be completed by our case intake paralegal or other employee , the party understands that the refund rules apply the same as if client had completed the questionnaire him/herself.The first payment will not be refunded, due to the time and effort expended on behalf of the client after a questionnaire has a been completed and the credit card charged. If Client sends signed and notarized documents to us, it will be assumed by us that Client wants Attorney James E. Smith to file said documents at court. The second payment will be charged to the client’s credit card on file and the case filed and no refund will be available for the second payment once we have received original signed and notarized documents from Client. If an annulment case is denied by the court for a case accepted by https://nevadaannulment.org and Attorney James E. Smith after March 18, 2016, a client does have the option of requesting a refund as per the terms of the Refund paragraph herein. If there is any attempt to obtain legal representation or legal assistance of any sort from us without paying for said services, it will be considered fraud. If a disagreement should arise between Attorney James E. Smith and any client who retained our firm, all parties agree that any civil proceedings will take place in Clark County Nevada.
2. Electronic Communication. By visiting https://nevadaannulment.org and sending e-mails to us in electronic form you consent to receive electronic communications from us, and a phone call, if you enter your phone number on the Contact Us page on any of our websites. You agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communication be in writing.
3. Credit cards. We collect your credit card information and we charge the fees for your legal case to said credit card. Once you complete a form on our website(s), you agree that the first half of the cost of your legal case will be charged to the credit card with which you provide us, either on the questionnaire or over the phone. You agree that the first payment is not refundable after we received the questionnaire from you. We begin work on your case IMMEDIATELY upon receipt of the questionnaire, no matter the time of day or night, and we take in cases seven days per week, excluding a few holidays, fifty-two weeks a year to better serve our clients.
4. Pricing and Billing. Fees are set forth throughout our website and on our intake forms–there are no hidden fees. Fees for all cases are charged at a flat rate for our services. In some cases, it is necessary to hire a process server and publish a Summons (in the case of a one-signature annulment or divorce) and this cost is additional to the flat legal fee which covers the services of your attorney and his paralegal staff. If your annulment or divorce becomes contested and you choose to use the services of Attorney James E. Smith to represent you in court, there will be additional charges as the flat fee covers your uncontested matter only, with no court hearings. Should you require the services of Attorney James E. Smith for negotiation, or mediation, or for anything above and beyond what is customarily needed for an uncontested Nevada annulment or divorce case with no court hearing, there will be additional attorney fees incurred. On occasion, Clark County Nevada District Court raises its filing fees. That fee will be passed on to the client. Every effort is made to contact clients and advise them of impending filing fees increases.
5. Applicable Law. By visiting https://nevadaannulment.org you agree that the laws of the state of Nevada, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern these Terms and Conditions, and any dispute of any sort that might arise between you and James E. Smith.
