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 lawyer? Can’t I do it myself? You might be tempted to not get legal advice because it is too expensive or not 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!

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. 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 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 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.

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. Ask why this is not covered at your first appointment.

Is it easy to obtain a consent order?
It is very simple. 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 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.
