Initial appointment – advice, costs, plan of action
Wallace & Wallace Lawyers’ family law team offers a fixed fee appointment for new clients of the firm. During the initial interview we discuss your family circumstances, provide some preliminary advice, provide possible action plans and provide an estimate of cost to achieve a solution.
Working your way through the maze of counselling, mediation, and the complexities of the court process, can seem daunting. Talking with one of our lawyers can help you pinpoint problems and map out a plan for you to move forward. Should you be unable to attend our offices we are also more than happy to arrange a telephone consultation to ensure your needs are met.
