At Gentles Family Lawyers we understand that you are probably feeling emotional and a bit nervous at the time you enter our office for the first meeting. We will show you empathy and will do our best to make you feel comfortable when taking the first instructions from you. If you need to see us urgently we can make your initial consultation after usual business hours if that is necessary and suits your needs.
The initial consultation takes approximately 45 to 60 minutes. We may ask you to bring any documents you think are relevant to that initial consultation. For example, if you wish to apply for a Divorce you may be asked to bring a copy of your Marriage Certificate with you.
We charge $275.00 (GST inclusive) for this consultation, which is paid either beforehand, or on the day.
If for any reason you decide that the option of resolution for your family law issues or disputes is the “Collaborative Family Law process” then we will make the next appointment with you free of charge.
If you already have an interest in the collaborative family law process then please take a look at the Collaborative Professionals NSW website to obtain further information about the process and read our section on Collaborative Practice for Family Law under our Services tab.
