Can I get legal advice?

It is always a good idea to get independent legal advice about the agreement you want to put in writing. A lawyer can explain the law and make sure you understand the consequences and effects of the agreement you want to make.

If you need help with preparing your written agreement, you can get legal advice from:

  • Legal Aid Queensland - call 1300 65 11 88 (for the cost of a local call from a landline in Australia) for free advice or visit www.legalaid.qld.gov.au
  • a community legal centre - visit www.communitylegalqld.org.au or call 1300 65 11 88 to find services in your area
  • a private lawyer - call the Queensland Law Society on 1300 367 757 for the names of lawyers who specialise or are accredited in family law.

Even if you have reached agreement with your ex-partner, it is always a good idea to get independent legal advice before formalising it.
