Automated civil billing

The fixed fee family billing module from Access Legal case management software automatically completes and submits all the necessary claims for fixed fee LAA family work for public and private funded matters in Legal Help.

Automatic form population

Our family law case management software contains all the letters, forms and precedents you will need, including all Children Act forms, Family Procedures Rules forms and Family Law Act forms.

All of these forms can be automatically populated with the data you've already entered into the system, which means you save hours on double-entry of information.

If these forms are missing information that you need from the client, you can send the form over to your client via the client portal for completion. Your client can then complete the form from their mobile or tablet and when they return it, the data in your case file will automatically be updated with the new information provided by the client, with the form stored in the file history.

Access Legal solutions integrate with a wide range of suppliers and services, enabling you to streamline more of your processes straight from your software.  Learn more >
