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 advice you need, the sooner you can start getting on with what needs to be done to sort out your family law matters. We will discuss your situation and give you a checklist to help you make the process easier.

Do I really need a Family lawyer? Can’t I 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 prove to be costly!

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. It is important to understand the legal process and how it works.

Every case is unique and you won’t get the same outcome as your mate. 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.

How can I save money on legal fees? How can I manage fees? YES! In the lawyer world, our time is your money. 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.

You can, for example, write your story. It might be therapeutic! If the matter is property related, you can gather all your financial records and prepare them for 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. 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. Ask why this is not covered at your first appointment.

Is a consent order an easy process?
Yes it really is quite a simple process. The hard part is usually reaching the agreement in the first place! But once you’ve done that, filling in an application for consent orders is reasonably straightforward. 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 part is where you will need to have some legal expertise in order for the court to properly word the orders and not miss anything.
