Family Lawyers Cost

In Australia, the cost of family lawyers varies based on the work that is done. Family lawyers charge between $350 – $750 per hour depending on their experience.

A simple family law matter could cost between $5,000 – $10,000.

The family law matter has to be straightforward without any complications.

If the family law matter deals with a property settlement and child custody in the family law court, the legal process could cost $30,000 – $150,000.

Most of the time, the parties involved will not want to incur such costs and will resolve the matter after receiving quality legal advice from the divorce lawyers they engage.

How to Find a Family Lawyer

Start Early: Commence the search for a family lawyer early to avoid making hasty decisions during significant life changes like separation or divorce.

Seek Recommendations: Ask friends, family, and professionals such as accountants or psychologists for recommendations. Leverage the experiences of those in your social circle who have 1undergone relationship breakdowns.

Choose an Expert: Opt for a specialist family lawyer with deep expertise and experience in family and divorce law.

Ensure the lawyer’s skills match your specific requirements, such as courtroom experience or expertise in custody matters.

Meet Your Lawyer: Personally meet with potential family lawyers before making a decision. Evaluate personal compatibility, gaining a well-rounded impression beyond email or phone correspondence.


Personal Compatibility: Consider the lawyer’s manner, communication style, and whether you feel comfortable and heard. Trust is crucial, and a lawyer who respects your point of view contributes to a positive business relationship.

Accessibility: Choose a lawyer who is accessible and responsive to calls and emails. Ensure clear communication, and if necessary, expand your search beyond local options for a better fit.

Look for Warning Signs: Be vigilant for warning signs such as discomfort, distractions during consultations, or breaches of confidentiality. Seek a lawyer who adheres to industry ethics and maintains professionalism.

Don’t Let Cost Be the Sole Factor: While divorce can be expensive, consider factors beyond cost alone. A higher hourly rate may be more cost-efficient if the lawyer is efficient and dedicated. Avoid basing your decision solely on fees; prioritise finding the most suitable lawyer for your needs.
