Legal Advice – When You Need To Know What Your Options Are
Family Law is a branch of Australian law that focuses on all the aspects of disputes that develop in marriage, divorce and ending of de-facto separations. These include, but aren’t limited to:
- Settlement agreements
- Parenting plans
- Spousal maintenance
- Child support
It is recommended that when you need to resolve a dispute that falls within Family Law, you get legal advice from a lawyer that has experience in dealing with cases that resolve family disputes. Remember that the laws can differ depending on which state you live in, so ensure that you factor in your location when you seek legal advice.
What does legal advice refer to?
Legal advice is the guidance you receive from a qualified lawyer, in this case, about your family law dispute. They will provide you with the information you need regarding the possible outcome of a dispute, recommendations on your next legal steps and what course of action might be best for you.
Remember that any advice provided to you by a qualified lawyer in any capacity does not constitute a lawyer/client relationship. Only when you sign a client agreement or satisfy other legal requirements, will the advice be considered formal and given under legal contract.
Anyone with a conceivable Family Law dispute or problem can receive legal advice. If you have issues or disputes that fall within other branches of the law, such as Criminal Law, remember to state the nature of your problem. You might require the services of a lawyer with more expertise in other areas of the law.
Once you’ve consulted with a Family Lawyer, you’ll receive advice on the recommended next steps you should take, be it meeting with a lawyer, or beginning the process of signing a client agreement.
