How our Family Lawyers Work

Cairns Divorce Lawyers is a practice group of Cairns-based firm, Preston Law

Our lawyers can help with any family law issue and guide you through the process of resolving any legal issues that may arise throughout your relationship. 

Free initial consultation

Your initial, confidential meeting with one of our family lawyers will help you start making legal decisions to protect your property and other assets, and to limit the impact of changes on your family. There is no obligation - if you decide not to proceed with us, you pay nothing.

Defer your legal fees

We understand that separation can create financial difficulties, which is why we offer a “pay on settlement” option so you don’t have to worry about legal fees right now (more details on deferred fees here). It’s quick and easy to find out if you’re eligible – call us for a free consultation. 

Fixed Fee Divorce Applications

In some circumstances, we can offer a fixed fee for divorce applications. Call one of our Cairns family lawyers today to see if you qualify for a fixed fee quote, or make an appointment to discuss your requirements.

Rose Davies is one of the most competent, professional and noteworthy lawyers I have had the pleasure of working with. She performs her job with due diligence and respect.

Anusha P .

Thank you for what you achieved for me. Your professional approach, balanced with your compassionate and sincere understanding of my circumstances was appreciated beyond what I can express.

Deb .

Sheree and Preston Law provided smart, accessible, sensitive and first-rate service in every respect. Although it was obviously a difficult and sad occasion, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend your firm heartily to others.

Jill L .

Just wanted to pass on my appreciation of how Sheree handled this matter. From my 1st call in a complete panic from Wales she was very diligent and responsive throughout the process but more importantly was very factual, calm and companionate which really helped settle my nerves and help me through what has been a terrible year. She was very professional and rose above the tit for tat which we were receiving at some points through the process whilst also keeping the cost to a minimum.
