It is not uncommon for a situation to arise whereby one party to Family Law proceedings is unable to qualify for a grant of Legal Aid funding but also cannot quite afford the ‘concierge’ service of a private lawyer.
If you fall into this grey zone, it can feel like you are trapped in limbo with nowhere to go.
This is where we come in!
At Accelerate Family Law, rather than locking our clients in to long-term retainers and requesting significant funds in trust, we provide discreet assistance at low cost that allows you to take control of your Family Law matter; we’re specifically geared to supporting parties who want to run their own Family Law case.
Indeed, as outlined in our previous article ‘Representing Yourself In Family Law’, you are able to represent yourself in all matters in Family Law, whether parenting or property related – and it is more common than you might think!
The Courts bend over backwards to support so-called ‘self-represented litigants’ to ensure that everyone has a fair go, and our team at Accelerate Family Law can provide further assistance as and when needed.
This can be particularly important for those parties who are in the weaker financial position, or for those in relationships where their partner controls or controlled all of the finances – if you fall into one of these categories, we can assist you to take those crucial first steps to get your matter before the Court so that appropriate Court Orders can be made for financial assistance and maintenance to give you back your financial autonomy.
