has anyone had a good experience with any family lawyers in the ACT?

Hi everyone

i joined this site( which i don’t join many) becuase  i can see many members actully make the effort to reply to the comments.

I am hoping members will do the same for my question as i am so stuck.

It is a common story but unfortunatley a painful one for all who experience it.

I am having problems with contact visits with my son as my partner does not comply with the court orders.
I have had so many bad experiences with lawyers and i do have good enough reasons to say this.

Anyway i am looking to see if anyone has EITHER:
1.hired a lawyer who does Legal Aid that they were happy with in the ACT
2.Hired a private lawyer that you were happy with in the ACT?

i would appreciate what your experiences were like also with these lawyers and why you thought they were good.

I have not seen my son now for two years and mainly becuase a few lawyers did not actully put in any paperwork!

Anyway thanks all and look forward to your comments.

What’s Your opinion?

Avoid legal aid. Totally avoid Relationships Australia. Alliance Legal are excellent and will keep your costs low. I have tried a number of Canberra lawyers – the first two cost me thousands with no direct result and yes lawyers often forget to lodge paperwork – its called negligence – they should be reported to the ACT Law Society. Two years and virtually no contact with my kids aged 12 and 10. Parental alienation is child abuse. I was the breadwinner – my ex husband brainwashed my kids while I was busy supporting the family for a decade. The Family Law system is totally broken – even spending thousands of dollars – I may lose contact with my kids. I am not a criminal. I an tertiary educated. Had a top secret security clearance – I lost everything when I lost my kids. Good luck – I hope you get some good results. Our story is far too common. BTW – everyone stop responding to needhelp – massive personality disorder there and just a troll.
