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 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 might be tempted to not get legal advice, because it may seem too expensive or unnecessary. 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. 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 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.

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.

You can, for example, write your story. It might be 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 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. 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. 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 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.
