SLATER & GORDON ONLINE  

GENERAL DISCLAIMER & USER ACKNOWLEDGEMENT 

 

What this service provides 

Slater & Gordon Online (S&G Online) delivers to you in a convenient form, the legal information required to generate legally binding documents to deal with your personal affairs  in accordance with the information that you provide during the online questionnaire. 

 

S&G Online is designed to generate legally binding documents that are effective to deal with a user’s personal affairs, where the user’s personal and financial affairs are relatively straightforward and fall within the criteria set within the online questionnaire.  It is your responsibility as a user of the product, to provide accurate information in response to the questions.  The online questionnaire will alert you if your personal or financial affairs are too complex and fall outside the criteria. 

 

To ensure that the documents you generate using S&G Online are legally binding and reflect your intentions you must be very careful to: 

  • provide accurate answers to all the questions asked in the online questionnaire; 
  • review the document carefully before signing to check that the document that has been generated accords with the answers you provided to the questions; and 
  • follow the instructions for signing & safe storage of your document(s) precisely. 

 

What this service does not provide 

In using this product, you are not receiving legal advice from Slater & Gordon..   

S&G Online provides general legal information.  This is not the same thing as legal advice.  One key difference is that the legal information provided is general in nature and not specific to your situation.  

 

In using this product, you are not receiving financial or tax advice from Slater & Gordon. 

 

S&G online is only appropriate for and available for use by those users whose personal and financial affairs fit within the parameters of the S&G Online criteria.  It is your responsibility to provide accurate information in completing the online questionnaire.  Slater & Gordon undertakes no check of the accuracy of the information that you provide.   

 

Slater & Gordon does not undertake any analysis of your personal circumstances, including financial circumstances and makes no assessment or recommendation as to whether using the legal document generated using S&G Online is the best option for you.  It is up to you to make that assessment. 

 

If you don’t understand any of the questions in the online questionnaire or are unsure whether your answers to any of the questions are accurate, the legal document generated may not deal with your affairs in accordance with your wishes.  It is your responsibility to provide accurate information in relation to your personal and financial affairs and to seek assistance from a professional adviser if you need further assistance. 

 

If you would prefer to prepare your legal document with the benefit of legal advice, our lawyers at Slater & Gordon  would be happy to assist you and you can call our legal help line on 1800 555 777 to make an appointment.
