Collier Family Lawyers Cairns Frequently Asked Questions.

When should I contact a Family Lawyer The sooner 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 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 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 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. Sometimes you need to choose your battles and not waste your time or money fighting over something that you won’t 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 unique and you won’t get the same outcome as your mate. 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 worthwhile to spend a small amount to get good advice.

Can I save money on my legal fees? How do I cope with 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.

At Collier Family Law, we know that money is tight and you want the best value for money. We will recommend that you do some of the legwork yourself to 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. 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. 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?
Yes it really is quite a simple process. It is often the hardest part, usually getting the agreement. 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. 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.
