what we can help you with

We cover a range of services

Child Custody

After a separation or divorce it is important to have arrangements in place for the children of the relationship. Sometimes these arrangements are informal or verbal agreements with your ex-partner; however it is often advisable to have such arrangements reduced to writing and even further, filed with, sealed and formalised by the Court.

De Facto Relationships

Under Australian law, parties to a de facto relationship are afforded the same recognition as married couples when it comes to dealing with the breakdown of the relationship. Once it is established that the requirements of a de facto relationship have been met, the parties are able to rely on provisions in the Family Law Act in the same way that married couples do when a relationship has broken down.

Divorce

Obtaining a divorce or ending a relationship can often be an emotional experience – especially when children are involved. Our divorce lawyers provide not only professional family law advice on your rights and obligations, but also guidance during this difficult period. We can prepare and file a divorce application for you quickly and cost effectively. We can also advise you on your legal rights and responsibilities in relation to child custody and the financial property settlement.

Family Violence & AVOs

The existence of family violence in a relationship, particularly where children are concerned, can play a significant factor in family law proceedings. It is not necessary for a party to have been charged with a violent offence or for police to have even been invovled for an allegation of family violence to be made and relied on in Family Court proceedings. However, where an AVO exists or an Applicaiton for an AVO is on foot, it is relevant to understand the impact that this and any other allegations of violence can have in property settlement and child custody matters. 

Property Settlement

After the breakdown of a relationship it is common then to resolve how the property of the relationship is to be divided – the family law property settlement. The family law solicitors at our firm have a wealth of experience in this complicated area of law.
