Why get legal support?

You may be in a hurry to submit your case to court, or feel you don’t have the time or money to deal with lawyers. 

But unless you have legal training yourself, the workings of the court and the requirements of the law can be confusing and stressful. Mistakes may mean you don’t get the legal protection you need.

A legal professional will clearly explain your options and help you make the best decisions to get the outcomes you want. 

They will ensure all your documents are in order and tell your story in a way that is most likely to get the results you’re looking for. 

And if your case isn’t suitable court, they will be able to show you other solutions, saving you time and heartache.

That’s why we strongly recommend you get legal advice before you submit your application.
