Every case is different, so no two court procedures take place in exactly the same way. At Kate Austin Family Lawyers, our team of legal representatives will provide Family Court Representation for you and help you to understand your case and your needs so that we can guide you on the best options that are available to you moving forward.
It is our experience that it is always better, and usually more cost and time efficient, for clients to reach agreement about their family law issues without going to Court, however the reality is that this is not always possible. If your matter is in court, or likely to have to proceed to court, it is important to choose your lawyer carefully. Your lawyer for court representation must have additional skills beyond knowing the law. They need to understand the court procedures that apply in different courts and the rules that apply in each court.
Your lawyer also needs to be someone who can stand up and advocate for you and to communicate effectively before a judge. At Kate Austin Family Lawyers we have significant experience in court appearances, and can readily pursue your best interests in dealings with both the court and other legal representatives.
Court procedures, and court rules and requirements can vary from court to court, and certainly different cases proceed down different pathways. The lawyers at Kate Austin Family Lawyers have years of experience in court representation, and in all of the various courts which deal with family law cases. If you require a lawyer who is capable and effective in court appearances, and a solicitor that is able to represent your best interests in litigated matters, you can feel confident that you are in good hands.
We have many years of experience handling all kinds of family law matters and our solicitors are available to Family Court Representation to clients in matters involving parenting disputes, property settlement cases, AVO and domestic violence cases, child support matters, spousal maintenance cases, and other family law and associated litigation.
For most clients, particularly when faced with the prospect of being involved in Family Court Representation, costs are a concern. We keep you advised of your costs at all times and provide regular estimates to you at all relevant times and at each relevant stage of your matter, and in advance of those costs being incurred.
