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 and give you a checklist to help you make the process easier.

Do I really need a Family lawyer? 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. 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. 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. 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 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 can I manage fees? YES! In the lawyer world, our time is your money. Most lawyers charge based on how long they spend on your file. This means, the more time your lawyer spends on your file, the more it costs 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 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. 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 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. 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. 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. 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.
