Ask yourself and potential lawyers questions such as:

  1. Do you want a male or female lawyer?
  2. Do you want an accredited family law specialist?
  3. Do you want a senior or junior lawyer?
  4. Do you want someone who specialises in collaborative law?

Family lawyers can assist you with advice on the following:

  1. separation, divorce or relationship breakdown, with or without children,
  2. dividing assets and child support,
  3. pre-nuptial agreements,
  4. adoption and surrogacy ,
  5. gay and lesbian rights,
  6. child protection and child rights,
  7. domestic violence and family violence cases,
  8. wills and estate planning.

Family lawyers charge by the hour and rates vary from $150 to $450 per hour, depending on the lawyer’s experience and expertise.
