What are the costs for family law matters?

We charge a fixed fee for our initial appointments of $300 + GST for an in-person appointment or $250 +GST for an online, video conference, appointment.
From there, we can talk with you about your matter and the potential costs that may be involved going forward.

Initial appointments for family law matters

An initial consultation usually takes around 1 – 1.5 hours, but it could be more or less depending on what we need to talk about in your matter. At our initial consultation, we will discuss your situation and your concerns in detail, and go through all of your options.

Before your appointment, we will send you an initial information form that we ask you to complete and return so we have some basic information about you. That initial form also has a list of the information that is helpful for you to either bring, or have as good as possible knowledge of in your mind (noting we know this isn’t always possible for everyone).


If you live in or around Samford, we usually meet at the Samford Community Hub, but we are also happy to find other places to meet, if needed.

If you aren’t in or around Samford, then we can find a place to meet that is convenient to you such as a local cafe or other meeting place. Most of our travel is to suburbs from Mitchelton to Dayboro, but please talk with us if you need to meet elsewhere, or consider an online appointment.
