Family Law

Protecting what matters most

Family Law

Ending a relationship can bring about a range of emotions. Having an understanding of the legal process, available options, and what will happen to your children, property and finance – can help you take control.

If you’ve decided to separate from your spouse or de-facto partner, we know that the next few months are going to be hard. There are lots of decisions to be made about what happens now and in the future.

We want to help you find your way through the maze of practical and legal things you need to sort out. We can tell you what you can expect, what you need to think about, what the law says, how to come to an agreement and what help is out there – so you can plan for your future.

We aim to resolve your family dispute without going to court wherever possible – without the emotional and financial cost that a court process brings.

We are collaboratively trained lawyers, nationally accredited mediators and family dispute resolution practitioners with over 25 years of legal experience. We have helped many separating couples achieve property and parenting settlements – without going to court.  85% of cases settle out of court.

Should court proceedings become necessary, we have the experience to confidently represent you in both the Federal Circuit Court of Australia and the Family Court of Australia.

When you work with us, we’ll listen to your concerns, identify issues that require resolution and provide realistic, cost-effective advice – helping you to move forward.

Family law is complex, and we’re here to help.

    At our initial meeting, you get the chance to tell us your story. What's keeping you up at night, what you want to change, what you want to stay the same, and what your short and long-term goals are.

    With that knowledge, we'll listen and identify issues that require resolution. Be that parenting or property we'll prioritise what's important to you and explore options for settlement. We'll help you decide which resolution pathway is right for you and provide some preliminary legal advice.

    It's essential to get early legal advice. Getting advice can help you understand your options, your rights and entitlements - at the start.
