Getting Ready for Your Appointment

The first family law appointment is a very important time for our clients. We want to get as much work done as possible so that our clients can know what to do right from the start. We find that many family law clients seem to want to spend most of their first appointment telling their family lawyer information that is very important to the client but may not have much relevance to their family law matter. So that Bodekers Family Lawyers & Mediators can efficiently and cost-effectively save you time and money in your first appointment and beyond we invite our new clients to write down everything that they want to tell us in their first appointment and email it to us.

We look forward to meeting with you at our discrete, casual yet professional Cottesloe family law offices after reading your background divorce and family law information on a complimentary basis.

You can go to The Family Court of Western Australia website and complete the form 3 application for divorce form and scan and email it to us prior to your appointment.

We can then check it for you and take you through the procedure involved.
