Core Areas of Family Law

Divorce & Separation

Getting a divorce is never easy. It’s an emotional event that can be very stressful for everyone involved, especially the kids.

The process of getting divorced is more complicated than you think. It’s not just filling out the paperwork and waiting for your spouse to sign it. There are lots of important details that need to be addressed before you can move on with your life. In fact, you probably have lots of questions about what happens next and how it affects your family.

We understand how difficult this time must be for you and your family. That’s why our team of experts is here to answer all of your questions about getting divorced in Australia with no hidden agenda or legal jargon. We’ll give you straight-up answers so that you can make informed decisions when it comes to legal matters and protecting yourself and your children.

We’ll make sure everything goes smoothly during this difficult time in your life by making sure you have taken all the necessary steps and that everyone involved understands what they need to do next.

Property & Financial Settlements

You and your former spouse have had an irretrievable breakdown of your marriage. You do not want to go through a divorce without legal representation, so our family lawyers in Melbourne are here for you. We can handle your property settlement negotiations or represent you in family court if it comes to that.

We know the settlement process can be painful for both parties, but it’s better to get the financial matters out of the way as soon as possible so everyone can move on.

A lot of people waste time arguing over petty things only to come back later when emotions have cooled down and try again. This often leads to resentment between the two parties because they feel like their needs weren’t met in the first place.

It’s much easier if you just let us handle everything from start to finish so you don’t have to worry about anything else while going through such a difficult time in your life.

Our family lawyers are experts at handling property settlements and financial compensation agreements with compassion and professionalism. And you will walk away with what you deserve when we represent you.

Parenting & Children's Matters

Divorce is hard on everyone, but it can be especially difficult for your children. You want to keep the divorce process as smooth and stress-free for your kids as possible. But you also don’t want to give up any of your parental rights or responsibilities.

Moreover, you don’t want your children or their future being used as bargaining chips in an adversarial divorce process. You don’t want your ex-spouse making decisions that could have long-term negative consequences for the kids, especially if they aren’t qualified to do so. 

Furthermore, child custody, child support, and visitation obligations can be complicated in the separation and divorce processes. So it’s very important to have an accredited family law specialist who knows how to deal with these details and minimise any potential harm to your children.

Our firm has extensive experience with child custody issues and will use our knowledge of family law and parenting plans to protect your children from potentially harmful outcomes during this time of transition. We’ll help you negotiate with opposing counsel on behalf of yourself and your children until we reach a binding child support agreement and custody settlement that are not only fair under the current circumstances but also workable for both parents in the future after divorce proceedings are finalised.

Our Melbourne family lawyers will help you negotiate a just settlement that protects the interests of both parents and their children. We’ll make sure you have legal representation when dealing with complicated issues like child custody and visitation rights so you can focus on helping your kids move forward after a divorce.

We’re here to help ensure that every child’s best interest is protected during this difficult time, which means we’ll fight tooth-and-nail against unfair parenting plans proposed by other lawyers representing selfish exes who only care about themselves instead of their own children’s wellbeing. Our family lawyers understand how important it is for even the smallest family member to feel like they matter during a divorce, and we will work hard to make sure this is the case.

Our firm will represent you and your children through the legal process, so we can help you move on. We’ll help you resolve any issues related to child custody, a binding child support agreement, and visitation rights.

Speciality Areas

Separation

Separation is hard on everyone. It can be a very stressful time for your whole family, and it’s easy to get overwhelmed with the legalities of separation. It’s especially hard on the kids, who can get caught in between their parents’ fights and struggle to cope with the changes that are happening around them.

The legal process can be long and complicated, which makes it even harder for your children to understand what’s happening. You don’t want them to grow up feeling traumatised by this experience, and you’re worried about how they will handle it all emotionally.

We understand that you might not want to deal with lawyers, but we promise that you can have no one better on your side during a separation than a family lawyer. We’ll make this process as painless as possible and help with everything, including property division, child custody issues, and spousal support arrangements.

Our Melbourne family lawyers know how important it is for your children to see an amicable separation so that everyone gets along as well as possible during this stressful time. But we also know that there are times when things get very heated between couples. Sometimes people need someone else to help mediate or negotiate issues until everything can be resolved peacefully.

We make sure each case has a dedicated lawyer working on it at all times because we value our clients’ peace of mind above anything else. This means that the whole family can move forward from separation, which is always in everyone’s best interests.

Our team of highly skilled attorneys will walk you through every step of the way, so you don’t have to worry about anything else except focusing on your children or planning your next steps.

And, of course, if the issue needs to go to the family law court, we will be there for you as well, as an accredited family law specialist representing your interests in the Federal Circuit Court.

Spousal Maintenance

When a marriage breaks down, it is often difficult for both parties to agree on an equitable settlement. After all, two people with different goals need to be taken care of. This is not always an easy task, and the process can get messy if you don’t have help from a family lawyer.

An accredited family law specialist can help you reach a fair and equitable settlement with your ex-spouse so that both parties can walk away with what they deserve. This is not child support; this is ensuring both spouses have a reasonable standard of living.

Our family lawyers in Melbourne are experts in the Family Law Act and experienced in helping clients come to reasonable settlements with their spouses. We understand the emotional turmoil of ending a marriage and want our clients to feel comfortable throughout the process. If we cannot settle amicably, we will be ready for family court so that you can get what you deserve from your spouse or former partner.

Our team of specialists will protect your interests in the divorce settlement and ensure that your needs are met when it comes to spousal maintenance or any other legal matter that is part of family law.
