Our company has been dedicated to offering high-quality services. When you work with us, you can rest assured that your best interests will be protected at all times during any legal processes.
We can assist you with a variety of legal matters
Our Lawyers can assist you with a wide range of issues. Our team has extensive experience in a wide range of legal fields. These are some examples:
Beneficiaries may require access to their inheritance, necessitating the necessity for probate. Probate is a unique legal proceeding that necessitates your undivided attention. The estate experts at Stratus Legal Group can assist you in obtaining probate as well as administering the estate, making life easier for you.
It's critical to consider how and to whom you wish to leave your estate. Those you care about may face difficulties as a result of your legacy. Consider their social security benefits, tax difficulties, beneficiaries' susceptibility, and whether or not your estate will be contested. Stratus Legal Group will provide you with sound legal advice and help you create an estate plan.
Real Estate and Property Law is a complicated field of law that involves a variety of legal procedures. Whether you're transferring ownership, subdividing, buying, or selling a home, our experts can lead you through the process from beginning to end, ensuring you get the best possible outcome.
Stratus Legal Group can assist you with everything from starting, buying, or selling a business to preparing commercial contracts. Instead of moulding your situation to a precedent, we customise our service to your specific goals and objectives, assessing all hazards along the route.
Let our team take away the 'what ifs' and allow you to focus on taking the first steps in your new life. Guiding you through your separation, giving you peace of mind at every step. We cannot change the past, but we can help you move to your future.
Strict time limits and no room for error, making sure your first application for your Visa counts. Whether you are applying for a student visa, spouse visa, work visa or entrepreneur visa, it is critical you get it right the first time.
Fixed Price Services
We at Stratus Legal Group are not interested in charging you for every six minutes of billable work, as most other firms do. This means that we will not keep track of the time it takes to make every phone call, write every letter, read every email, attend every court session, and meet with you. We guarantee that you will never be charged for time; instead, we will provide you with a fixed price agreement based on everything we discuss during your initial consultation. This is a black-and-white indication of how much you are spending from the start, giving you financial peace of mind and allowing us to focus more on your goals.
