How Is Athena Different Than A Lawyer?

Our services are different than that of a lawyer’s. Learn the differences to better understand what is best for you.


  • A software solution that focuses exclusively on removing barriers in collecting arrears
  • You pay a flat, monthly subscription fee that doesn’t break the bank
  • Generates customized, state-specific legal documents already filled out and ready for you to sign
  • Eases the filing process by providing you with step-by-step instructions
  • Keeps you updated every step of the way through an online dashboard


  • Represents you in court and completes paperwork for your child support enforcement process
  • Will require a burdensome retainer fee likely in the thousands, not something most moms can afford
  • If your ex or his assets needs to be located, your lawyer may have a private investigator find them at additional costs to you
