We are easily accessible and affordable

We provide services in all areas of family law including but not limited to the following:

Separation & Divorce

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)..

Property Settlements

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.

Parenting Arrangements

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.

Consent Orders & Financial Agreements

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)

Spousal Maintenance

We can provide legal advice on your eligibility for Spousal Maintenance, assist you in negotiations or represent you in Court, where necessary.

Family & Domestic Violence (FVROs & VROs)

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.

Legal Aid Services

We are recognised Legal Aid Panel Practitioners, and can represent grant approved clients on this basis.

We also Offer Unbundled Family Law services

Unbundling legal services, where a lawyer provides legal services for part of your legal matter, gives you more control over your case and the cost associated with it, and allows you to save costs on those parts you can do yourself. If you want a legal professional handling your case from start to finish, guiding you ever step of the way, use our classic full services.
