Our Lawyers ACT can provide ACT residents with the best legal advice for the best price. We can talk you through your problem any day of the week, between 7am and midnight. Our Lawyers ACT team are experts in their field of law and are experienced advocates in Court. Whether your problem is relatively simple, such as debt recovery, or more complex and involving multiple issues, we have the expertise to walk you through your dispute, and give you options for resolution.
The ACT has a Magistrates Court and a Supreme Court, both of which have criminal jurisdiction. Our experienced criminal lawyers can guide you through the Court processes, and the sentencing options. We can explain to you how summary procedure works for more minor offences, and also when a more serious indictable offence may be heard summarily in the Magistrates Court. Whether you have been charged with drug possession, assault, or a more serious offence such as manslaughter, our criminal lawyers can provide you with the best advice and representation.
Civil law in the ACT includes debt recovery, employment matters, contractual disputes, negligence and other torts, equal opportunity law, and residential tenancies. Our Canberra lawyers can give you the answers you need to make a choice about whether a dispute is worth pursuing, when and how to negotiate, and if necessary commence proceedings on your behalf. We also have the skills and experience to assist your new ACT business to flourish, from franchising matters to leasing and consumer law.
Our team of ACT family lawyers can advise you on how the law takes into account financial and non-financial contributions to the household when determining how to split the assets of a relationship post-separation. We can argue your case on your behalf and help you reach an agreement when you can’t do it alone. Our family lawyers are also experienced in preparing binding financial agreements for people whose relationships are just beginning.
If you have had your car impounded or your licence disqualified and you require your car for work purposes, our ACT traffic lawyers can assist you to make a case for the return of your vehicle and/or an application for an extraordinary driver’s licence. We can even provide you with quick over – the – phone advice on how to respond to more minor traffic infringements, with our telephone hotline service that operates 7 days a week from 7am until midnight.
The ACT has strict laws in place regarding driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol. It also has strict laws which oblige you to cooperate with police who ask you to provide a breath, blood or saliva test. At Go to Court Lawyers, we understand that you are most likely to get “caught out” for DUI outside of work hours, when you are having a few drinks in the evening or on a weekend. This is why we offer a legal advice hotline 7 days a week from 7am until midnight, so you can access a lawyer immediately after you have been arrested or charged with a DUI offence.
Are you moving to the ACT from overseas and want to know the quickest, easiest way to apply for permanent residency or citizenship? Or perhaps you are moving for work purposes and want to know whether your work arrangements are legitimate and fair under your work visa. Our Canberra immigration lawyers know how to optimise your chances of your application being approved, and within a reasonable time. Telephone our hotline and ask for one of our immigration lawyers and, if English is not your first language, we may even have a lawyer who can speak to you in your native tongue.
Personal injury law in the ACT includes compensation claims for negligence, injuries suffered at work and motor vehicle accidents. Our Canberra lawyers will work with you at every step of the way, so you can get back to enjoying life.
