The aim of your initial consultation with a family lawyer is to provide expert family law advice on the options available to you having regard to your individual circumstances. We will discuss your options, alternative forms of dispute resolution and recommend a strategy to best achieve your desired resolution, based on the relevant provisions of the Family Law Act 1975 and related legislation.
Before your first meeting with us one of our specialist family lawyers we will let you know what information we require, so you have the opportunity to prepare documentation. However we understand that not everyone has access to such information in which case we will also discuss strategies for obtaining this information.
We will also discuss with you legal costs including how we charge and what you can do to try and minimise your legal costs.
Please refer to the Law Society of NSW site for further useful information.
