If you’ve made the decision to get help from a family lawyer, it can be enormously helpful to know what first to expect. What will the first session involve? What do you need to prepare? What is the cost?
Even in that initial consultation, becoming further informed about the process of separation from a family lawyer can give you peace of mind. You’ll feel assured that your legal obligations are being taken care of, and that you’ve got someone you can rely on to navigate you through what can be a lengthy, complicated, and stressful separation process.
At Croker Edwards, we charge a flat rate of $275 (inclusive of GST) for a first consultation. We are happy to conduct the conference either in person or by Zoom.
There is no requirement for you to notify your partner that you have met with a family lawyer. Your appointment is confidential.
There is also no obligation after your first appointment to follow through with hiring your lawyer.
