Collier Family Lawyers Cairns: Frequently Asked Questions.

When should I contact a Family Lawyer? The sooner 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 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!

You really do need to know whether you are on the right track with what you think you are entitled to and what might be done if you end up before 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 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 do I cope with 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. 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.

Another time-saver is to have my clients fill out documents in draft so I can check them over. Or they can make their own enquiries if they want, such as getting three quotes from a valued. 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?
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. 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 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.
