Finding a Family Lawyer to handle your family law matter can be a very trying process. We offer a 30 minute initial consult with one of our experienced Family Lawyers during which we will assess your matter and offer comprehensive advice.

At Adelaide Family Lawyers we understand that going through a family breakdown is an emotionally difficult time and that it is important to put your family in the hands of someone you can trust. Our team of friendly and experienced lawyers will provide you with legal advice in a clear and easy to understand manner and where possible will help you to negotiate a resolution to save you the costs and emotional stress of going to Court.

At Adelaide Family Lawyers we are committed to providing access to justice. If it appears at your initial consultation that you are unable to afford legal representation and we believe that you meet the eligibility criteria for a grant of Legal Aid, we will assist you through the application process including the completion of the relevant application form.

Consultation Process

The process involves an initial 30-minute consultation to take instructions and provide initial advice which may include community mediation. If unsuccessful or inappropriate for the circumstances the next step may be to write directly to the other party or their solicitor to commence the negotiation process or otherwise the matter may need to proceed to court.

During the court process, the parties are expected to negotiate where possible to progress and finalise the matter.  If the parties are unable to reach an agreement the matter will be listed for trial in which case the judge will make all decision to finalise the matter.

  • 3rd party negotiations

    This includes community mediation through one of the community providers such as Centacare, Anglicare and Relationships Australia.

  • Court negotiations

    This is the next step if community mediation is not successful.

  • Trials

    If the parties are unable to negotiate successfully to finalise the matter it will be listed for trial

Sealed Court Order

 If parties are happy with a parenting agreement or otherwise through a community mediation service they will not need to go to court.  Otherwise, the court will make a decision, either by consent via the parties’ negotiations through the court process or at trial by the judge.
