"The team at Movement Legal recently assisted me on a difficult matter, and I can honestly say that they were fantastic to deal with. As soon as I met Ezra in person I knew I'd found my lawyer. He was sharp and knowledgeable, but was also really compassionate (and remained so throughout the process)."
"Fantastic service - very supportive and immensely knowledgeable. Could not be happier with both the process and outcome. Highly recommended."
"Movement Legal helped me when I needed it most. They explained the process each step of the way and always made me feel assured. I was very satisfied with the outcome and the quality of service."
I’ve been a lawyer for 15 years. Having spent the last few years working with individuals and couples on their separations and divorces, I’ve been exposed to how complex expensive and troubling the legal system can be for people navigating this stage in their life.
Movement Legal was born from this calling to simplify and streamline the whole process.
Today there are many couples who acknowledge they have reached the end of their relationship, but want to part ways with the least amount of friction possible.
Save stress, time, and expense.
Using the Courts as a forum to manage your Separation should only ever be a last resort. The Courts are slow, massively backlogged, and the Court’s adversarial nature is not necessary for couples who not in a high-conflict situation.

No need to come in to the office. The team is available online and across Australia.
We provide fixed fees for any work that we perform, so that you can budget your legal spend before we commence any work.
An end-to-end solution that includes estate planning, wills, conveyancing, mediation, divorce applications (as needed).
Unsure about how we operate, or with aspects of the separation process? We've compiled a list of commonly asked questions and provided answers for your ease of reference.
The first step is to contact us, either by our contact form or a phone call. Our team is friendly and approachable.
We will have a 5 - 20 minute discovery call, where we gain a basic understanding of your situation. We will see which of our packages would best suit where you are at, and the outcomes that may be achievable.
We will then send you a formal proposal.
In our discovery call, we will ask you about the 3 areas of the relationship – assets, children, and whether you and your partner are in a high or low conflict state.
We will then discuss ways we can move you forward, and what may be realistic outcomes.
This enables us to gain a better understanding of your matter, and be able to provide you with a package and course of action as your next step.
From our initial conversation, we will listen carefully to understand your situation and consider some strategies that would be the right fit for both where you are now, and what would be the most optimal outcome. That will guide us in proposing a pathway that is the right fit for you.
We have worked with many individuals and couples to design an approach that has worked well for them, without squeezing anyone into pre-defined boxes.
Yes. If you are currently using another law firm, and would prefer Movement Legal to manage your situation, then we can request the other firm to send us all their file. No need for you to have that awkward conversation.
No you don't need to come in. We are fully set up as an online law firm, and can hold any meetings with you via phone, Whatsapp, Zoom or Google Meet.
All appointments and communications are kept strictly confidential.
You do not need to wait until the divorce has been formalised before working on your property settlement. As soon as you have separated from your ex-partner, you can begin the process.
Assets that have been acquired during the period of separation will be included in the “asset pool” to be divided between the parties. This continues until the date of settlement.
Part of this property settlement process will be determining what happens with your house - whether one party remains in it, or if it is sold and the proceeds divided.
