Family Law

Sensitive, expert, confidential family law advice when you need it most. We understand the complex nature of family law. We know you are undergoing significant stress during what we understand is a difficult time. Establishing your legal position in family law matters can be frustrating and confusing.

Taking a professional and empathetic approach to your family law matter and providing comprehensive legal advice, we work with you to resolve your matter using a conciliatory approach, which may include mediation.

We encourage you to consider your position carefully. Give us the time to listen and inform you thoroughly so that you truly understand your options and the effect on the future for you and your family members. Our advice will be clear and easy to understand, and we keep in regular communication to ensure you know how your matter is progressing.

Our family lawyers have a deep knowledge of all aspects of family law and consistently resolve  complex property, divorce and parenting matters without the need to resort to costly and lengthy litigation. Their years of experience enable the family law team to understand and deal with intricate asset holding structures involving corporate entities, trusts, partnerships and businesses. Where settlement cannot be reached pre-litigation, our family lawyers also have a deep knowledge of both the Family Court and the Federal Circuit Court processes and rules.

  • Division of property of parties to a marriage or domestic relationship
  • Matters involving children's ongoing care arrangements following separation
  • Same sex property and children's matters
