We are a family law firm dedicated to helping people resolve their matters with minimum wasted effort or expense. No two family law matters are the same, your matter is different and should be treated as such. What does not differ from matter to matter is the amount of time and effort which is put in to ensure that our clients are cared for, understood and listened to. We have set out to be different from your traditional family law firm and developed services aimed at providing more value for money to our clients.
We provide services in all areas of family law including but not limited to the following:
Separation is when you and your partner stop living together in a domestic or marriage-like relationship. This can be a very stressful time for all parties involved. We provide compassionate and realistic expert advice to guide you through your decision making on all aspects of separation including but not limited divorce (the legal ending of a marriage).
After you separate from your spouse, you will likely need to make arrangements to divide your property and separate your finances. We can assist you in the negotiation of asset division or represent you in property proceedings.
We offer expert advice, assistance with Parenting Plans or Consent Orders and can aid you in the application of Parenting Orders and represent you in Court.
While it is not compulsory to formalise your agreement about property and/or children, it is recommended that you formalise your agreement by obtaining consent orders from the Family Court. We can provide you with advice on Consent Order and also help you in the preparation and filing of the same in the Court.
We are also able to assist with matters involving financial agreements (contract between the parties that can deal with how property will be divided if a relationship breaks down)
We can provide legal advice on your eligibility for Spousal Maintenance, assist you in negotiations or represent you in Court, where necessary.
Domestic and family violence can take many forms, and be committed by a partner, carer or family member. It involves any behaviour that is intended to control, dominate or frighten, and includes assault (physical or sexual), psychological or emotional abuse, financial abuse, verbal abuse, intimidation, and harassment. It can also involve abuse of pets and damage to property.
Laws, processes and services are in place to help people subjected to violent and unacceptable behaviour and to protect you and your children, pets and property.
Whatever your circumstances, we can give you options and support if you are involved in a situation of domestic or family violence.
We are recognised Legal Aid Panel Practitioners, and can represent grant approved clients on this basis.

Recently I have had the opportunity to have Efficient Family Law Group on my side. During the course of my divorce, Nelson has been there every step of the way providing me with assurance, guidance and support through the Western Australian Family Courts. I am very pleased with the positive outcomes to which I never saw happening on my own. I have sent my closest friends to Efficient that also had a positive impact on their lives. I highly recomend this firm to anyone who ever has to deal with extremely difficult situations.
It has been a pleasure to work with Efficient Law group for last 2 years for my marriage settlement, very professional and knowledgeable lawyer, in my experience they been very honest and very reasonable with there fees . Highly recommendable
Kate was fantastic and made the process easy.
Thank you for taking the time to listen and to answer all my questions. I am greatful to have a clearer sense of direction. Thank you to Nelson at Efficient Law Group.
Kate was superb in handling my case and achieved an outcome better than I had hoped for. There was always clear communication and options presented which made it easy to understand the process. Gabriel also oversaw the entire process and stepped in while Kate was unwell so I felt supported and very assured that I was looked after at all times. Thank you Efficient Law Group, will be recommending to anyone who needs your service!
Nelson Chibwe and team from Efficient Law Group dealt with my case in a very professional and timely manner. They delivered the exact outcome I was looking for and made the whole process easy for me to understand. I recommend their services as the business promise was kept: Law, made efficiently.
I had Nelson Chibwe supporting myself through my Family Court Proceedings and he made it so as easy as it could be going through this.
He was calm and very supportive. My court proceedings have finally come to an end and I would like to thank Nelson as well as everyone else involved from Efficient Law Group. Thanks again
Kate Whither is one of the best and helpful lawyers i have come across. She is very professional and knowledgeable in her field, yet personable, attentive, and understanding.

Can’t thank Nelson enough for all his help with a very stressful situation.
I would highly recommend him for anyone who’s going through tough situations and need someone to represent them very professionally. I’m glad to say our matter was settled swiftly and it’s all thanks to Nelson.
Nelson Chibwe represented me in my Family Law case in June.
Nelson was extremely professional, compassionate and caring and I can’t thank Efficient Law Group enough for their assistance.
The office staff were also professional and efficient in my dealings.
It was an incredibly stressful situation and Nelson made me feel at ease throughout the entire process.
Thank you again Nelson.
I can recommend these lawyers for dealing with the delicate issue of Child Abuse Family Violence Or Risk quickly and, as the name suggests, efficiently. They often turn to us to serve Court documents for them at short notice.
Jan Ross, Managing Director, Pathfinder Investigations Pty Ltd
Early on 5 July 2019 I called your office regarding extremely serious circumstances in which my daughter was being physically abused by the mother.
The advice given by you and your office saved my daughter's life as I strongly believe that the situation of her being in Booragoon was escalating out of control.
Such a moment predicated by your life saving legal advice, I will be eternally grateful for.
Thank you for all your efforts during the last few months and we wish you and your staff at Efficient Lawyers a happy and safe Christmas.
On behalf of the Blake Family
Walking into the law firm I felt overwhelmed and had no idea where to start with the situation I was in. All my fears and questions were resolved and I was reassured I was in good hands. Throughout the whole process Genevieve and Gabriel were amazing. They were always a phone call or an email away if I had any questions, no matter how minor, always were happy to help.
I can't praise this firm enough, if I'm ever in need I won't hesitate in coming back and I highly recommend them to anyone needing assistance.
I approached Efficient about a legal matter. Initially I was interested in someone in the Rockingham area. Nelson gave me a free consultation in Rockingham and then Damon looked after me out of the Perth office. I received sound legal advice in a matter of fact way. I would recommend them and use them again.
Efficient Law firm were extremely helpful, the free initial consultation was very informative and gave me the confidence to proceed in what was a difficult stage in my life.
10/5 star Company. I have been a loyal and longstanding client, and so can vouch for staff, competency, capability, results, in a word - EFFICIENCY for this A1 Firm. The Director Nelson is extremely hands on, while leading his expanding team and branches to unmatched performance and excellence in winning ratios. If you need a lawyer that stands out from the rest, this Group extends NOR to SOR incl regional to cater for everyone in need. All star.
True to the business name I found Gabriel very efficient. I was very nervous about the whole matter being dragged out and this was solved promptly and efficiently. Thank you
Would highly recommend. They fully supported me throughout my dealings with them and were very understanding and transparent with financial costs.
Nelson is one of a rare breed of law professionals that actually genuinely cares about the welfare of his clients. I have been with Nelson for over 2 years and his advice and guidance have been invaluable for me during this difficult time. It was thanks to the way Nelson and his team handled my proceedings that put me in a strong position going into my trial and I am now expecting a positive decision from the magistrate. I would absolutely recommend Nelson to anyone who is need of quality legal representation.
Nelson was absolutely an amazing lawyer. He fights for what you want and goes above and beyond to help those who really need it. I wouldn't go anywhere else for a lawyer! He was very respectful and actually cares about his clients, he is approachable and kept everything positive for us and explained things when we didn't know what they meant. Thank you Nelson and your fabulous firm you were an amazing help from 2016-2017! 10/10!
Nelson was a calming influence for myself ,when going through an exasperating
property settlement.His insights ,looking at the situation from the outside, brought
a level of common sense to the table.
Nelson helped me keep my sanity through the process ,even though the other
party already had an exceptional deal before they called there lawyer.
i highly recommend him and his team
Nelson has been amazing through my separation and divorce. He is friendly , easy to approach, understanding through tough times , very efficient , very smart & professional. With the free 1hr consultation he explained everything very clearly with affordable rates. Highly recommended . Looking forward to continuing with you. Thanks you
I dealt with Nelson Chibwe during a separation from my ex partner. I was also going though major surgery at that same time. It was very stressful, I hired Nelson to represent me and he was so helpful. He took all the stress out of my separation and I could just concentrate on getting my health better. He even came to my house so I could sign papers as I was unable to drive or walk far.
Nelson was very professional,compassionate and approachable. He explained everything to me step by step and I felt I could ask him anything and he would always return any emails or phone calls promptly. I'd highly recommend Nelson and his firm if you need legal representation. I also found compared to other law firms the cost was very competitive.
Nelson Chibwe was very approachable, friendly and most helpful!
Thank you for consultation, Evgeny and quick timely response of your team. I hope you can help me to resolve my issue
I am very grateful to Evgeniy for his competent advice on processing documents for a visa for my son. The result surpassed all our expectations. Contrary to the advice of other migration agents, my son received his visa. Thank you very much for your excellent work.

I am happy I have got a professional consultation with Evgeny Vasilyev. My concerns about my matter have been heard and validated, I have got a clearer vision of court procedures. Hope to get Evgeny 's help in the future. Thank you, Evgeny!
I had the pleasure of dealing with Evgeny, Nelson and Anna for children's matters, and they were extremely professional, sincere, and very reliable. I would recommend them to anyone and everyone..
