The Benefits of an Initial Consultation

  • by

The best time to get legal advice is before making any major decisions or take any irrevocable action. If you’re thinking about separating from your spouse or requesting divorce, or if your tensions with each other have been at a point of breaking and you are in need of advice, this is the best moment to seek advice.

These are just a few reasons why the early warning is highly recommended.

You can review all of possibilities

Divorce isn’t easy, and even though the goal is to reach a certain threshold, i.e. that you’re legally no longer married as a couple or in a civil partnership how you reach that point can happen in many different ways. Family law does not need to be a case of litigation and having to appear in court. There are many ways to approach negotiations, such as collaboration and mediation. A 墨尔本 律师 咨询 can provide all the options that are available, giving you time to consider what will work best for you and your children you may have. There are a lot of choices with regards to costs and benefits, which is also important to consider and plan for at an early age.

Think about both the short as well as the long term

A consultation with a family lawyer in the beginning can also help you think about what you would like to achieve in both the short and the long term. The initial focus of many people is on the immediate as they try to figure out a method for getting out of their discontent. But, rushing to act in this time can affect your relationship with your spouse. It is typically worth keeping the peace, particularly if there are children in the relationship.

If you’re not already in a corner

We can help people whatever stage they’re at. However, it’s not uncommon for individuals to consult a lawyer only after having separated with their partner. Unfortunately in these cases the event that a significant step was already taken, for example, one person has moved out of the shared home, the options then become less obtainable. The advantage of seeking advice at an early stage before any final decisions have been made is that you still have a wide range of options open to you.

Find out what you’re doing

There is a great deal of hearsay around family law and a number of perpetual myths prevail. Family law is also evolving and changing, albeit at a rather slow pace. So, what you believed you knew about divorce or separation or civil partnership dissolution might not be factually correct. Understanding where you stand legally will give you peace of mind or at the very least, allow you to make the next step in a manner that is well-informed that is based on information.

Begin from a place of peace

The divorce process can be emotionally charged and the stress that comes with it often causes individuals to behave in a way that is not their typical behavior. It is important to seek out advice early so that you can let go of the emotional baggage and look at the situation with calmness, focusing on resolving the issues instead of being influenced by your emotions in your actions. This approach may hopefully mean this approach can continue throughout your case eventually leading to an efficient and quick resolution.
