Collier Family Lawyers Cairns Frequently Asked Questions.

When should I contact a Family Lawyer The sooner you contact a Family Lawyer, 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 help you need, the easier it will be to move forward with 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. You are at risk of making mistakes 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. 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. 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 worthwhile to spend a small amount to get good advice.

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 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.

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.

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. If this isn’t covered with you at the first appointment, ask why.

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! But once you’ve done that, filling in an application for consent orders is reasonably straightforward. The ‘do-it-yourself’ person will find it difficult in two areas. 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.
