The Best Family Law Advice from Melbourne Family Lawyers
At Melbourne Family Lawyers, we don’t offer a “free” first consultation and use it to market our services to you. The first meeting with one of our lawyers is scheduled for one hour because we know it will take a bit of time to listen to your story so that we can understand your situation and what is important to you and what you would like to achieve. After we have listened to you, we will provide our honest advice and opinion as to what can be done to assist you. We have a very experienced team of Specialists and Senior Lawyers, so we have probably previously encountered clients with similar issues and we know the best way to assist you in achieving the best result for you. If you have all of the relevant information required by us to be able to assess your case, then by the conclusion of your one hour meeting, you will have a clear understanding of where you stand legally and practical advice as what you should do next. We will have answered all of those worrying questions you had and you will probably feel a lot more certain about your future.
Our Family Lawyers are best at being honest and down-to-earth. We talk to you in plain English. If you have a strong case, we will tell you. If you have a weak case, we will tell you. And, we will tell you what we think at the start of your case, not at the door of the Court after you have spent many thousands of dollars! Of course, no matter whether your case is weak or strong, we will do our best to achieve the best result possible in the circumstances, whilst always keeping check on what it is costing you.
Our Family Lawyers focus on what is important to you, the client, and we give you the benefit of our team’s many years of experience representing Family Law clients in Melbourne, Australia and overseas. We can guide you because we know how to deal with your situation- even if you have a very difficult spouse or partner.
Sometimes, mediation or a collaborative approach is desirable if all involved are reasonable and committed to resolving a dispute in a fair way without going to court. Sometimes, if we are dealing with an aggressive or difficult former spouse or partner, the Family Court may be the best option. Our experienced Lawyers will help you decide.Back to all Articles & Cases
