Sometimes in Family Law you can feel overwhelmed and emotional which is why you need an expert’s guidance. We know all the tricks when it comes time to draft documents and what to look for in specific clauses simply because we do them too! Our aim is to get the best result for you. If it means going to court and not settling then that's what needs to be done.
We often find clients are very nervous about changing lawyers once their family law matter has started. There is a misconception that no one will know your case better than your current family lawyer as they have been with you since the beginning. We want to reassure you that your family law case and details are all in your file. When you change lawyers (upon your instruction) your file gets transferred to your new family lawyer. To make the process even easier we will often not charge you for reading your file so that we can be up to date with your case! We often like to remind clients that as well as your current family lawyer no one knows the facts in your case better than you and so if any information is ever needed, you yourself are the best source for obtaining that information.
Your family law file belongs to you – not the lawyer. Provided you have paid all your invoices with your previous lawyer they must release your file to you upon your request! Remember you only get one shot at doing your family law settlement, once final orders are made it's often too late.
