How can our Family Lawyers help you?

We’re ready to listen and give you the advice you need.

Property & Parenting

Parenting issues can cause distress and heartache to parents and their children. It is important to recognise and respond to parenting problems as soon as possible. Mediation is now compulsory in parenting matters. Although mediation is not compulsory in property disputes, it should be considered before Court action is commenced.

Divorce Law

Most people are aware they must be separated for a minimum period of twelve months before they may file an application for divorce. Many people do not realise that an application for divorce is simply just that. Issues regarding property and parenting are separate to an application for divorce.

Custody & Protection

Sometimes, when parents are unable to provide adequate care and protection for children, the Department of Family and Community Services may need to intervene. If this happens to you, you will be involved in proceedings before the Children’s Court. Care proceedings are very complex and it is important you obtain proper legal representation.

Buying and selling property or a business can be complex not to mention stressful. Buying a house can be the biggest transaction you have handled. A contract of sale and a mortgage document are lengthy and complex, usually written in legal language that is hard to understand.

Wills & Estates

You, like most people, want peace of mind and certainty about what happens to their assets in the event of your death. Having a well drafted will has become even more important in our changing society and blended families.

Mediation has many benefits. The process puts the control of dispute resolution in your hands rather than leaving it up to a Judge to decide. Mediation is usually significantly cheaper and quicker than going to Court.

Binding Financial Agreements

The words Binding Financial Agreement (“BFA”) refer to a variety of different Financial Agreements referred to in the Family Law Act, 1975. A BFA is an agreement between married, soon to be married, defactos of the opposite or same sex.

Legal Aid

We offer some of our legal services to clients on the basis of a grant of legal aid. Legal Aid NSW determines applications for aid on a merit and means test basis.

Learn More

Adoption Law

Adoption is the legal process whereby a child is legally recognised as a member of a family, and the adoptive parents take on all rights and responsibility for the adopted child.

Learn More

Child Support

Separated parents often argue about the level of financial support the non-residential parent is to contribute towards the living expenses and well-being of the children of the relationship.
