In September 2021, the Federal Circuit Court and the Family Court merged to create the FCFCOA.
With that merger brought a stronger focus on pre-action procedures. These are the steps that families should take before they even consider bringing an application in court.
While there are still exemptions if you are the victim of family violence, children are at risk of harm or the matter is urgent. There is a clear pathway towards mediation and resolution outside of court.
At @coastallawyers we embrace every opportunity to keep our clients out of court and we think that the whole process of mediation just makes sense for families. It is inclusive. It is collaborative. It is much more cost effective. The parties remain in control and it is future focussed.
If you have recently separated, then why not book in a 1 hour Strategy Session @coastallawyers for $330 and we can discuss how the pre-action procedures apply to your family.
As of 1 July 2022 we also offer fixed fees for family law matters including legally assisted mediation and consent orders.
