Can I talk to a solicitor on the phone? What about the free 30 min. consultation?
If you would like to talk to one of our solicitors for the first time, it is usual to book an appointment for a half hour consultation for a small fee. In that time the solicitor gains the background necessary from you to give you correct legal advice for your position. This conversation is written up for our records.If your FAMILY LAW matter continues with us then we will credit your account with a free half hour.If you are a client already, you may phone to talk directly to the solicitor if he/she is available. If the solicitor is not available they may call you back or an appointment for a phone conversation can be arranged.
Things are very difficult at home. Should I move out?
It is very important to take legal advice before even considering such a step, as it could have significant ramifications for the future.
Should I tell my partner that I am going to see a solicitor?
We recommend that you wait until after the first meeting, as we will discuss the best approach and the right time to do so. Our meeting is completely confidential.
Should I bring anything with me for the first meeting?
You may prefer to come in for an initial consultation to decide if you want to proceed, and how. If you have already decided that you want to end your marriage, you should bring your marriage certificate with you. It’s useful to make some notes of your own about any jointly owned assets, liabilities, income, and investments, including pensions. If you have any questions on this, please do ask us in advance. You will also need to bring with you on your first meeting identification documents including either a passport or driving licence, and a recent bill or bank statement addressed to your home address to provide proof of your identity and residence.
We were never married. What rights do I have?
If you are not married then you may or may not have the same rights as people who are married depending upon the date of your separation. The date of separation also determines which court you can bring your claim in. There are strict time limits after the date of separation within which you must have commenced your court proceedings. There are other legal paths you can take, but you do need to get clear advice on these, which we can offer you.
How much will it cost?
Our fees are based on rates which vary according to the experience of the team member who is working on your case. We are considered to be very competitive compared to other Brisbane firms. We will discuss the likely total costs and how you can best manage the payments. We want to reach a resolution as cost-efficiently as possible.
How long will it take?
This is usually the first question our clients ask. The divorce process itself usually takes between 2 to 3 months, but it often takes longer to resolve the property issues. Every situation depends on the level of complexity and the willingness or otherwise of the partners to resolve their issues. Our aim is to reach a resolution as efficiently as possible.
