Where do I start?

With legal problems, the first place women usually are is; “I’m stuck.” 

We see so many women who have an issue. They’re not particularly clear if it’s actually a legal problem or not, but then they don’t do much about it. 

Whether they’re stuck because of stress, overwhelm, fear, uncertainty, or just don’t know where to start. 

So they’re stuck, not beginning. 

But realistically, you just need to start somewhere. Just like anything in life, just start. 

The longer you leave things, quite often, the worse the situation can get, and I have seen women who’ve left things for months and months, and the situation has just compounded. 

So the earlier you actually start doing something, the better.

So what do you do? Where do you start? Well, you start by making a little bit of a plan for yourself.

So if you’re just not even sure what sort of situation it is that you’ve got yourself in, or where to begin, just start on Google, like so many other places. So Legally Wise Women also has lots and lots of free, short snippets of video information for you, so there might be some relevant legal information there for you to start.

But basically you need to have a look into; what’s the sort of language I should be using? What sort of matter is this, to even be able to find someone that can help you? And then you can start doing a little bit of research into the area to find out, is there a free service I can use? Is there some kind of dispute resolution? Where do I stand with this? 

So you can do a lot of that information research yourself. There’s a lot of free legal information out there.

It’s just a matter of finding the right stuff. 

At Legally Wise Women, we teach you how to find the right relevant information, and then we also help you find the right lawyer, which might be your next step. 

You might figure out, “Well, I can actually deal with this myself and do it for free,” or you might think, “Okay, well, my next step is I really need some legal advice. I don’t want to engage the lawyer. I just want a one-off appointment to find out where I stand.”

Give yourself a timeframe about how long you will allow yourself to research before taking the next step. 

Give yourself a timeframe to do the research, and then set yourself a timeframe when you’re going to decide to either get legal information, get advice directly from a lawyer, or whether there’s some other process that you can take. 

So Legally Wise Women also offers strategy sessions, not specific legal advice, but certainly a session around where to find the relevant information, and what is your next step.
