Here are some tips to get the most out of your consultation with your lawyer:
- Have a goal in mind:
To have accurate legal advice for your situation and a service that meets your expectations, it is better to determine in advance the reason for your consultation. Do you want to sue someone? Do you need legal advice before buying real estate or other property? Are you looking for different solutions to a specific problem? Whatever the reason for your call, having a goal in mind will help you get a more comprehensive answer to your legal questions.
- Prepare your questions:
It is advisable to prepare a list of questions to ensure you do not forget to discuss an important point during your consultation.
- Gather all relevant documents:
Before deciding on your case, a lawyer may need to know important information related to your situation. It will allow them to have a complete vision of the facts and thus give you a more precise answer. It is also important to not hide information from your lawyer, even if you believe it is compromising. Know that your lawyer is not there to judge you and that all your exchanges are protected by attorney-client privilege.
Usually your lawyer will ask you to tell them your situation or your expectations for this consultation. This will allow them to identify your needs and to answer precisely. It may also be that he or she asks you several questions that may seem like minor details, but that will help better determine the legal remedies available to you. As well, if you have exceeded a limitation period, or the limit of compensation that you can ask to an opposing party, if this is the reason for your consultation. In any case, your Neolegal lawyer will try to give you a complete answer supported by the right articles of law specific to your situation.
You can consult a lawyer in several different cases. Most people think of talking to a lawyer only when they have received a demand letter or are already being sued. In general, it is advisable to consult a legal professional before making an important decision such as buying a property, signing a contract, or if you plan to sue a person or entity in court. If you want to consult a lawyer for professional reasons, do not hesitate to visit our corporate packages.
Although each case is unique and treated accordingly, a commonly followed procedure includes:
- 1. Preparation and filing of an application at the courthouse
- 2. Informing of your ex-partner of the filing
- a. If an agreement is reached: you can file a request in order to settle the entire file
- b. If you cannot come to an agreement: you will need to secure a trial date and prepare in advance to obtain a court judgment of divorce
An uncontested divorce is advantageous for its duration and cost. This type of divorce occurs when there are no outstanding issues that would hinder the process of divorce, such as the disagreement of parental custody, spousal support, or the division of assets. Both parties may resort to mediation in order to find common ground favorable to all.
A contested divorce is one in which both sides cannot agree upon certain factors or if one side does not agree to a divorce.
We can help you file a joint divorce application or help you draft the request to file your divorce appeal, if contested.
There are three motives accepted by the Ministry of Justice:
- 1. One or more years living separately before the decision on the divorce is issued and on the date the proceedings were instituted
- 2. Adultry (for which only the innocent party can file)
- 3. Physical or mental cruelty
If your situation does not fall into one of these categories, it is still possible to file with the Court. Your case will be handled carefully by one of our lawyers specialized in divorce and family law.
