Proud Members of the Family Law Practitioners Association (FLPA)

We’re proud members of the industry body for family law professionals, the Family Practitioners Association and the Family Law Section of the Law Council of Australia.

We understand the complexity of family law and have the capability to apply the law accurately to your unique situation.

No one gains from a lengthy, bitter struggle. Whatever you’ve been through, resolving your family law issues requires competence and care.

And at Corney & Lind we have restructured our fee schedule so that our services are more affordable than ever before.

A Competent, Caring Approach

We give advice with the future in mind. Proactive (not reactive) counsel from our team will help you to make wise, informed decisions. That means you’ll be equipped to achieve the best possible outcome.

We aim to resolve matters quickly. Nobody wants to get involved in a long, drawn-out dispute. We believe it’s essential to get into purpose-oriented discussions early on. In our experience, this delivers the best outcome for clients.

A Purposeful Mindset

Families are essential to a healthy community. When a household becomes fractured, it puts a strain on the extended family – and the community.

What Is Family Law?

Family law is the area of law that relates to the different aspects of a relationship breakdown. It covers things like:

  1. Who the children will live with
  2. How much time the children will spend with the other parent
  3. Who has to pay child support
  4. How to distribute the property accumulated before, during, and after a relationship
  5. Protection from domestic violence
  6. What happens to the family pets
  7. Whether you are able to access spousal maintenance
  8. Divorce
  9. Pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements

Do I Need a Family Lawyer?

Family lawyers use their knowledge of the law to serve clients who are thinking about separating or who have separated from their partner. We also assist couples who want to proactively deal with their property going into a relationship or marriage to ensure that there is minimum difficulty in sorting things out if the relationship breaks down.

Our Family Lawyers will:

  • listen to you and help you develop a strategy for resolving the legal issues which arise from the breakdown of your relationship
  • give you sound, timely advice about the law and how it affects you in your particular circumstances

How Much Do Our Family Lawyers Cost?

We charge $300 (including GST) for a 1-1.5hr initial consultation.

During your initial consultation, we will:

  • go over your circumstances with you
  • ask questions and gain an understanding of your unique situation
  • provide information as to
    • what your legal position is
    • which legal paths you could take along with the benefits and drawbacks of each
  • give you an estimate of how much each path would cost
  • (if applicable) suggest options you could carry out yourself – so you can minimise legal costs

Why We Don’t Offer Free Consultations

As a firm, we know we’re entrusted with some of the most significant issues in our clients’ lives.

We want to make sure you’re getting the best advice – so we have to be prepared. Before you even set foot in our office, your lawyer will review your situation. They’ll explore your options with care and attention – so you’re given an unrivalled strategy when you get here.

If you’re offered a free consultation elsewhere, the chances are you’ll be getting “one size fits all” advice. Your time is valuable – so we want to make sure we’ve done our homework in advance. Our time spent researching is included in your $300 consultation fee.

Where Are We Based?

We’re located in Herston, opposite the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital – just north of the CBD.

We’re within easy access of all parts of Brisbane.

The RBWH Bus Station is across the road from our office, Bowen Hills train station is within 10 minutes walk, and there are a few parking options available.

Can’t Get to Brisbane? No Problem.

Our lawyers are available for teleconferencing via phone or Skype – let our team know and we’ll arrange this for you.
