We know that family law legal issues are stressful and overwhelming. We also know that during this time, you need a top family lawyer not to just listen, not to just act, not just to defend you, but to give sound legal advice and options focused on the future you want.
Our Legal Services
Family law property settlements. We offer a range of solutions from medium to large estates, including complex family law matters.
When parents separate, they usually agree on arrangements for the children. Sometimes they want to formalise these arrangements into writing. Other times, parents cannot agree and require help. There are several good options to help parents resolve disputes. If you cannot resolve your parenting dispute contact our family lawyers for experienced and trusted legal assistance.
When your relationship comes to an end, bringing about a divorce is a crucial step to recognising the end of the marital union and vowels. Involving divorce lawyers can help you resolve disputes, obtain important legal information and protections and finalise the process quickly.
If you need to go to court, our experienced family lawyers have represented many clients in court and we consistently achieve good outcomes.
Child protection matters aim to protect children from harm including neglect, violence, psychological abuse, physical abuse, and sexual abuse. The Department of Health and Human Services is the responsible department for child protection matters. The child protection authority is required to consider a range of principles when acting in the best interests of children and when making decisions. Contact us to see how we can help you with your child protection matter.
Involving Intervention Order Lawyers can help you get important legal advice about your rights, obligations and the consequences of an intervention order. If you believe an intervention order has been placed on you unfairly, then contact our experienced intervention order lawyers for legal advice, options, a review of your matter and court representation.
The family law recognises that at times one party may need financial support from the other party. Our experienced family lawyers can help with maintenance applications or responses.
If your legal matter can be solved through mediation, it can be an empowering process which often saves money, reduces stress, saves time and can go some way to having a better relationship with the other party. There is a lot of good that can come from mediation. We recommend mediation and alternative dispute resolution in many cases. Contact our family lawyers to discuss whether mediation is right for your situation.
When life pulls parents in different directions or when a parent needs to leave an area, the parents need to decide how the change will affect their children. Where parents cannot decide about whether a child should relocate with a parent our family lawyers can help. When you need to relocate a child where it is in the best interests of the child we can help advocate on your behalf or put your matter before the family law courts to determine.
Changing a child's name requires the agreement of both parents or a court order. We can help you bring about a name change through negotiation or if it is in the best interests of the child, court proceedings.

Your Right of Professional Legal Privilege
Did you know that when you speak with or communicate with a lawyer for the dominant purpose of obtaining legal advice, you have the right of professional legal privilege?
Professional legal privilege is a right that you have which means that anything you tell a lawyer must be kept in confidence and that what you tell a lawyer is protected from police, courts and almost all authorities exercising coercive powers requiring the production of information from a lawyer.
This ensures you can provide your lawyer with full and frank disclosure about the issues affecting you and obtain legal advice and legal services to help you.
In very limited circumstances, we may break your right of privilege if you are genuinely going to harm someone or yourself but only to the extent reasonably necessary to prevent the harm.
How Our Family Lawyers Achieve Favarouable Outcomes for Family Law Clients
COMMUNICATION & OLD FASHIONED QUALITY SERVICE
Our approach is that we listen to client needs first. We take the time to understand the issues and obtain proper instructions about the circumstances and what outcome our clients want to achieve so that we can act in a client's best interest.
This is both good customer service and good communication. Unless your lawyer listens, a favourable outcome is a matter of chance. We do not leave legal outcomes to chance.
ATTENTION TO DETAIL AND RESOLVING ISSUES
We understand that family law is a complex area of the law and that it requires attention to detail so that we can respond, deal with and resolve the issues in dispute and resolve those issues cost-effectively.
Our approach is to understand the issues up-front and deal with them up-front. This holistic approach avoids unnecessary legal fees, matters taking more time to resolve than they should and it reduces long-running conflicts.
WE PROVIDE A SUPPORTIVE & RESPECTFUL LEGAL SERVICE
We are client-focused family lawyers which means our solicitors listen first, then in a compassionate and supportive way, discuss your legal rights and options, and then work with you to solve the issues and produce the best outcome for your personal circumstances. We help you move forward in the best way possible.
We respond in a timely manner, provide respectful customer service and go that extra mile to ensure you feel comfortable and confident with the direction of your legal matter.
LEGAL STRATEGY & RESOLVING DISPUTES FAIRLY
Our lawyers will help you formulate a legal strategy to resolve the issues, protect your best interests, foresee the other party's position and claims, and to act fairly in resolving legal issues and legal proceedings in the shortest time possible.
The legal strategy in any matter is an important concept in how a legal matter is approached and starts with making the right claim, thinking cost-effectively, resolving important issues in dispute, providing evidence to back facts, effectively disputing false allegations and pursuing a case theory.
LEGAL FEES, COST TRANSPARENCY AND REGULAR UPDATES
Legal services can be a major expense. The expense reflects the skills, time and expertise required to resolve legal issues and the value and protection that good legal services provide. We help our clients stay informed by providing regular and transparent information about pricing, the likely steps in your matter to resolution and by providing fixed-fee legal services where possible.
We are up-front with client's about the viability of any legal issues or proceedings, and we provide cost-benefit analysis so you can make informed choices about the conduct of your legal matter.
By being transparent and up-front about our legal fees and the other associated costs of legal disputes, our clients are not caught out by unexpected fees and costs. As a result, our clients can manage the costs of legal disputes and make fully informed decisions that keep our clients in control.
