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 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 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 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. It is important to understand the legal process and how it works.

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 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.

How can I save money on legal fees? How can I manage fees? YES! In the lawyer world, our time is your money. Most lawyers charge according to the time they spend in 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 it is a property matter, you can get together all your financial records and prepare them to give to us. You can also fill out an automated letter of instruction. This gives us the information we need to provide you with 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. 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. 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 part is where you will need to have some legal expertise to ensure that the orders are correctly drafted and you don’t miss anything.
