Collier Family Lawyers Cairns: Frequently Asked Questions.

When should I contact a Family Lawyer? The sooner the better! We have people contact even us before they have separated for advice as to what they can do to start protecting assets in case it all goes pear shaped; or just to find out what they need to do. The sooner you get the help you need, the easier it will be to move forward with your family law matters. We will discuss your situation with you and give you a checklist of things to think about and attend to in order to streamline the process as much as possible

Do I really need a Family attorney? Can’t I just do it myself? You might be tempted to not get legal advice, because it may seem too expensive or unnecessary. In the same way you wouldn’t think of building a house unless you had the expertise to do so, you run the risk of getting it wrong if you don’t get legal advice. This could be a costly mistake!

It is important to know if you are on the right path with what you believe you are entitled to, and what to do if you find yourself in front of a judge. You need to pick your battles sometimes and not waste time and money arguing about something you are just not going to get. You will need to understand the process of settling a property dispute and what your rights are. It is important to understand the legal process and how it works.

Every case is different and just because your mate got a certain outcome doesn’t mean you will. There is a lot of information available. You shouldn’t try to diagnose your problem yourself from Google. It is worthwhile to spend a small amount to get good advice.

How can I save money on legal fees? How do I cope with fees? YES! Our time is your money in the legal world. Most lawyers charge according to the time they spend in your file. This means that the more time your lawyer spends working on your file, then the more it will cost you.

Collier Family Law understands that money is tight. We want to give you the best value for your money. This is why we will suggest to you that you can do some of the legwork yourself – as this will reduce your fees.

For example, you can write out your story – you might find it therapeutic! If the matter is property related, you can gather all your financial records and prepare them for us. We also have an automated letter of instruction which you fill in, and it gives us the background we need from you to give you advice. This will save you at least an hour.

As another great time saver I regularly have my clients fill in documents in draft for me to check over; or make their own enquiries where they can – for example, getting three quotes from a valuer. Your fees will be lower if you do more than I can.

Remember that your Cairns family lawyer must give you a fair estimate of fees at the beginning of your engagement. They will continue to give you additional estimates throughout the life and development of your file. If this isn’t covered with you at the first appointment, ask why.

Is it easy to obtain a consent order?
Yes it really is quite a simple process. The hard part is usually reaching the agreement in the first place! Once you have reached an agreement, filling out a consent order application is relatively easy. There are two places where the ‘do it yourself’ person comes unstuck. Firstly there are a couple of sections in the form that are not as straightforward as other parts of the form and might require some legal advice. The second is that the application for consent orders must be accompanied by minutes of order where you set out the orders you want the court to make. This is the part that does require some legal expertise in order to make sure the orders are worded correctly and you don’t miss things out.
