We understand that when a family law issue arises within a family it can be the most stressful time in a person’s life. When a marriage or defacto relationship breaks down, it is essential that each party to the marriage or relationship is properly advised in relation to their legal rights under the Family Law Act and other relevant legislation. This advice is essential in enabling both parties to resolve their dispute in the most timely and cost effective manner.
We have been providing clients with Family Law advice for almost forty years, particularly in relation to the areas of:
- Divorce Applications;
- Financial agreements and consent orders;
- Applications for Property Settlements; and
- Parenting arrangements and children’s issues; and
- Child Support Applications and Spousal Maintenance.
Our aim is to provide clients with realistic advice in relation to their rights and the rights of their children and if there are issues in dispute, to attempt to resolve the issues without the need for expensive court proceedings and to document the agreement in accordance with the requirements of the Family Law and Child Support Act. The family law solicitors of our practices work with their client to establish the most cost effective means of documenting the agreement between the parties whilst ensuring that the client’s legal rights are preserved.
If the parties are unable to reach agreement following dispute resolution, and court proceedings are necessary then our lawyers are well equipped to represent their clients through the court process to achieve the best outcome possible for the client.
