Family Law Services

Our comprehensive services cover various aspects of Australian family law. This complex legal area can be extremely stressful, but we are here to empathetically guide you towards resolution and help you move forward with your life.

Our experienced team is ready to provide expert advice and representation on various family law matters, including:


Before applying to the Courts for a divorce, a separation period of just over 12 months is required. However, you do not need to wait until then before commencing the property settlement process.

Financial Agreements

Financial agreements, commonly known as prenups, can protect assets before entering a relationship and bring finality to financial and property issues at the end of a relationship.

Child Custody

Determining children’s living arrangements and addressing shared parenting issues require careful negotiation and formalization at the time of separation, always keeping the child’s best interests as the primary consideration.

Property & Assets

The division of property, finances, and assets plays a significant role in family law cases. Our expertise in negotiations ensures a fair and equitable resolution, tirelessly working to protect your interests and achieve a favorable outcome.

Defacto Relationships

Defacto relationships present unique issues, distinct from married couples, including defining the formal commencement date of the relationship.


Separation is communicated when one party declares the end of the relationship to the other. It is essential to mark this date as it determines the time limit for property settlement before the Court.

Spousal Maintenance

The Court may order financial support from one partner to another on an ongoing basis after separation in certain situations. This support is separate from child support.

Representation in Court & Litigation

When court intervention becomes necessary, our brave and capable team effectively advocates for our clients’ interests in family law proceedings, ensuring your rights are protected.

International Relationships and Family Law

With increasing instances of relationships and weddings occurring across international jurisdictions, we possess expertise in dealing with these complex situations.
