The TV courtroom dramas, however exciting they may be, are wrong. It’s not an adrenalin-ridden roller coaster that ends up with the “right” party winning.
Resolving separation and divorce through court is a harrowing, costly affair. There are few winners (other than the lawyers). And that’s why many people who approach us are sceptical as to how we can charge so little and still offer them all the legal support they need to get through these challenging times.
We no longer try to navigate the family law system. Instead, we encourage you to consider settling your differences outside the courtroom. And if you can do this, we’re able to keep your costs to a minimum while still being able to fulfil all your legal obligations.
Others ask if we know what we’re doing. And we can confidently say “yes”. Rachel is an accredited specialist in family law, and registered as such in both Queensland and NSW. More importantly, because we specialise in consent orders and have developed a super-efficient process to handle them, you’ll have yours completed in just a few days. Plus, as family law is a Federal jurisdiction in Australia, we provide these services to clients in all states except Western Australia.
In short, when you choose Kate Austin, you’ll get:
a modest, fixed fee with no surprises,
a fast, hassle-free process,
all your questions about the legalities answered,
everything handled by a lawyer with 20 years of family law expertise.
If this is the kind of support and resolution you’re seeking, call us for a no-obligation chat. We’d be happy to talk you through what you can do to make this time as stress-free as you can.
The process of writing consent orders was made very simple by your knowledge and professionalism. Jessica was easy to talk with from my initial telephone call and easy to communicate with by email thereafter. Her manner was reassuring and considerate and she had the knowledge required to answer my questions. The fixed cost made budgeting easy and affordable. I have already recommended your company to a friend and will do so again in the futureread more
I can highly recommend the team at Kate Austin Family Lawyers. They prepared Consent Orders and also organised the property transfers. From beginning to end everyone has been very friendly, professional and helpful and the whole process has been extremely stress free. The fees definitely did not break the bank and worth every $ to know that the process is done properly the first time. Jessica in particular has been very reassuring to me and it's been greatly appreciated. Thank you Kate Austin Lawyers!read more
