Legal Advice and Strategy Sessions

Providing Legal Advice and Strategy Sessions for Interact Support clients.

The session is 90 minutes long and is designed to help participants understand their legal rights and obligations. Then the session moves on to a consideration of options and then finally a strategy to deal with your legal issue.

Sometimes the strategy is to attempt Family Dispute Resolution (FDR) mediation, sometimes it is to go to court and sometimes it might be to sit back and wait for the other person to initiate legal action if they want to.  The advice is customised to your situation, budget and desired outcomes.

Please contact Interact Support to complete an Interact Support Client File and Family Doors Risk Screen document before contacting one of the law firms we refer to.

This ensures that you have all the information they need to understand your situation available to make the maximum use of the session.

“I just wanted to thank you for taking such good care of my referral for me. She was very happy with everything that you did for her.”
Conveyancing Manager at Gold Coast Law firm

“The mediation was very smoothly and professionally conducted in a warm and welcoming venue. As a family law property matter where young children were involved some of the issues were sensitive. Our mediator Joelene Nel was skilled at putting the parties at their ease and talking through in a calm way some tough issues both in group and one on one sessions. It was a long day but very happily the matter settled and final orders were agreed and signed off on the day. I am sure that without mediation this matter would have run on for many more months. Thanks to all.”
Senior Associate Family Lawyer at Gold Coast Law Firm

“I really enjoyed working with you… I value your empathy and professionalism.”
