  • Do I have to appear in Court?
    This all depends, usually if you have been given a notice to appear or summons, then yes you will need to appear, we will also appear with you. If the matter is adjourned, then Lawyer from our firm will appear on your behalf on the next Court date.
  • Do I have to let the police search my car?
    If police have a warrant to search, then police will have the power to search your vehicle. Police can also search vehicles without a warrant, but this depends on the circumstances. It is advised to inform the officer if they do not have a warrant that you object to them searching the vehicle and do not give them permission, but do not stop/obstruct police as you may commit an offence. Searches without a warrant can be looked at by your lawyer to see if this was done lawfully, and it is a question of law that will be dealt with in submissions to police prosecutions or having the matter determined by a Magistrate or Judge.
  • Do I have to let the police search my house?
    If police have a warrant to search, then police will have the power to search your house. Police can also search a house without a warrant, but this depends on the circumstances. It is advised to inform the officer if they do not have a warrant that you object to them searching your house and do not permit them, but do not stop/obstruct police as you may commit an offence. Searches without a warrant can be looked at by your lawyer to see if this was done lawfully, and it is a question of law that will be dealt with in submissions to police prosecutions or having the matter determined by a Magistrate or Judge.
  • I have been given a notice by the police to have my photograph and fingerprints taken, but I have already done this when I was arrested last time, do I have to do it again?
    The short answer is, yes. It is a lawful requirement if issued with a notice for identifying particulars that you present to a police station in the required time to have this done.
  • Police want me to come to the police station to be questioned about an offence, do I have to attend?
    No, there is no requirement on you to speak to police if they want to question you. It is best that you contact a lawyer as soon as possible.
  • Do I have to give the police my pin to my phone/computer/electronic device?
    This will depend. If police have a warrant issued by a Magistrate or Judge, then it is a requirement to provide you pin to allow access, by not doing so you may commit an offence. However, if you have communication on your phone between your lawyer and yourself, then this may be considered legally privileged information. It is best to advise police that this is the case, and then ask to call your lawyer. If there is no warrant then you do not have to provide your pin for access to your devices, and it is your right to refuse this request.
  • What happens if the police charge me with an offence, but I didn’t commit it?
    It is important that you seek legal advice from a qualified lawyer, as you will need to speak with the lawyer and advise them of your concerns and why you did not commit the offence, to allow the lawyer to make a submission to police prosecutions as to why the charge should be withdrawn. Time can be of the essence in these matters so the sooner you speak to your lawyer, the better.
  • I have been served court documents "initiating application" in the Family Law courts. What should I do?
    If you have been served court documents you should seek legal advice immediately. You have 28 days to file a response to an initiating application. Failure to meet these time frames may result in orders being made without you having the opportunity to defend them.
  • My partner is selling our assets and we have not reached an agreement on who keeps what. What can I do?
    If you suspect your ex-spouse selling or getting rid of assets you need to take immediate action. You may have to file courts proceedings and seek an injunction to stop things being sold of freeze banks accounts to stop money from being spent.
  • I have separated from my partner some time ago and we never divided our property. Can we do this anytime?
    Once you have divorced you have 1 year to file for a property settlement or spousal maintenance. Defacto relationships you have 2 years from time of separation. We always advise to settle your property matter as soon as you can and not to leave it too long or you risk not meeting the statutory time frames. If you are married you can settle anytime before your divorce. We recommend seeking legal advice in relation to your separation dates to ensure these time limits do not pass.
  • My partner said they are going to take half my house and superannuation. What can I do?
    There is no 50:50 rule in Australia. Which means no automatic entitlement to half your house or property. There are a number of factors which must be considered. Initial contributions, contributions during the course of the relationship, health of the parties, age and future needs factors are some things which will be taken into consideration. Each matter is based on its own merits and must be fair and just.
  • My partner took the kids and moved states without consulting me or giving any consideration to how this will affect the relationship between my children and I. What can I do?
    If an ex-spouse unilaterally relocates with the children. It is important to seek immediate legal advice on filing an urgent application for recovery orders. These type of proceedings are complex and require a large amount of resources and work to bring the matter before the courts, particularly in circumstances where Domestic Violence is a factor and the children are at risk of family violence.
  • Can I be charged with drug driving if I have a prescription for medical cannabis?
    Yes. The law states you must not drive with a relevant drug present in saliva. This includes medical cannabis even if you have a subscription.
  • I was charged with a drink driving offence on my boat, but my driver’s licence has been suspended, what can I do?
    If this is the case, then it is important to speak with a qualified lawyer to have your ability to drive a motor vehicle reinstated, as driving a boat under with alcohol in your system differs form driving a motor vehicle with alcohol in your system.
