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.

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!

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
