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 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 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 may be tempted not to get legal advice because you think it is expensive or not really necessary. 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. Sometimes you need to choose your battles and not waste your time or money fighting over something that you won’t get. You will need to understand the process of settling a property dispute and what your rights are. You need to know what legal steps have to be taken, and how to go about it.

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.

Can I save money on my legal fees? How do I cope with 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, the more time your lawyer spends on your file, the more it costs you.

At Collier Family Law, we know that money is tight and you want the best value for 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. The more you can do, the less I need to, which reduces your fees.

Remember also – your Cairns family lawyers MUST give you a proper estimate of fees at the start of your engagement with them, and keep giving you further estimates throughout the life of your file. Ask why this is not covered at your first appointment.

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. 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.
