We will keep in regular contact and make sure you understand what is happening.
Lots of firms say they care, we actually do care! We've been where you are and know how it feels.
We will make sure you are aware of what is most likely to happen in your case. We won't string you along.
Unlike a lot of other firms we don't discriminate if you receive Legal Aid funding.
Our lawyers are experienced in all aspects of Family Law and many areas relating to Family Law.
It will be tempting to use the children of a relationship against the other party and this feeling is completely natural. However, we must resist this for many reasons one of which is that it is a form of child abuse! We must always put the needs of the children first at all times. We will talk to you about being reasonable in your dealings with the other party and trying to come to an arrangement that suits all.
Whilst divorce is very common (approximately half of all marriages end before 10 years) it doesn't need to be stressful. In order to have a divorce there are a few conditions which must be met and these are discussed on our divorce page. One point to be made is that there is no need to hire a solicitor to handle the divorce itself. We are, however, more than happy to take your instructions, complete the paperwork and lodge the forms on your behalf if you are not inclined or don't have the time. There is a modest fee for this service.
If you agree with the other party about how to split up your assets from the relationship we can assist you to file a consent order with the court. Sometimes it is not that easy though and we will guide you through the court process to reach agreement. We will provide you with all the information required to make an informed decision about how you should proceed. You should also consider making a new will when a relationship ends.
Do it yourself will kits may be suitable for very basic wills but there are some very strict requirements under our state legislation for making a valid will. You should always do this through a solicitor. We are experienced in drafting wills for various circumstances including blended families. It is not just a matter of making a will but looking ahead to probate issues that may arise if your will has been poorly drafted. We can also assist you with family inheritance claims.
*First interview is $50 for our time(30mins) however there may be court or other costs out of our control
