Collier Family Lawyers Cairns: Frequently Asked Questions.

When should I contact a Family Lawyer The sooner you contact a Family Lawyer, the better. Even before separation, people call us to get advice on how to protect assets in the event of a messy divorce. 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 do it myself? You might be tempted to not get legal advice, because it may seem too expensive or unnecessary. You are at risk of making mistakes 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. With a property settlement you will need to know the process to working it all out and what you are entitled to. You need to know what legal steps have to be taken, and how to go about it.

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 worth it, to outlay what is really only a small sum in the scheme of things, to get some good advice to get you started.

Can I save money on my 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. We will recommend that you do some of the legwork yourself to reduce your fees.

For example, you can write out your story – you might find it therapeutic! If it is a property matter, you can get together all your financial records and prepare them to give to us. You can also fill out an automated letter of instruction. This gives us the information we need to provide you with advice. You doing this yourself will save at least an hour of time.

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. The more you can do, the less I need to, which reduces your fees.

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. Ask why this is not covered at your first appointment.

Is a consent order an easy process?
It is very simple. It is often the hardest part, usually getting the agreement. Once you have reached an agreement, filling out a consent order application is relatively easy. The ‘do-it-yourself’ person will find it difficult in two areas. First, there are sections of the form that are more complicated than others and may require legal advice. The second requirement is that consent orders applications must be accompanied with minutes of order. This allows you to outline the orders you wish the court will 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.
