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 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 lawyer? Can’t I do it myself? You may be tempted not to get legal advice because you think it is expensive or not really necessary. 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. Sometimes you need to choose your battles and not waste your time or money fighting over something that you won’t 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 different and just because your mate got a certain outcome doesn’t mean you will. There is also a lot of information out there and just like a medical issue you really shouldn’t self diagnose from Dr Google!! It is worthwhile to spend a small amount to get good advice.

Can I save money on my legal fees? How can I manage fees? YES! Our time is your money in the legal world. Most lawyers charge based on how long they spend on your file. This means that the more time your lawyer spends working on your file, then the more it will cost you.

At Collier Family Law, we know that money is tight and you want the best value for 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. 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?
It is very simple. It is often the hardest part, usually getting the agreement. 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 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.
