How do we charge for Family Law matters?

We cost your matter by hourly rates, however, our hourly rate for Family Law matters ordinarily sits below the published Supreme Court Scale.

We understand that accruing costs in your matter can be stressful. This can cause some clients to simply stop liaising with us on a regular basis, believing this will minimise their fees. It often works, however, to their detriment.

So, if you’re concerned at any point, about your fees, call us, tell us it’s about your fees, and we’ll stop the clock, have a comfortable conversation with you to allow all of us to move forward with confidence
