We start with good advice

For many clients arriving at our door, this will be the first time they have spoken with a lawyer or been involved in a family law dispute. This is a time of hurt, anger, stress and anxiety. Lack of previous experience with family law means clients are uncertain about what options are available, what steps are involved, what role the Family Court plays, and what the future holds.

While the ultimate outcome can never be guaranteed, we bring certainty to the process. At our first meeting we will take the time to explain the family law system to you. We will make sure you have a clear understanding of the process, your options, the likely range of outcomes, and the best way available to you to achieve a resolution. We will also provide you with written advice so that you have clarity of the path forward.

We always have a plan

Each person’s financial situation are different. So too are the decisions that have been made through their relationship. There is no formula that applies to every person’s situation, which is why unravelling your relationship requires a strategy that is just right for you.

When you have us by your side, you can be confident that the person handling your matter has a deep understanding of your situation, knows what is most important to you, is aware of what you’ve been through and are going through, and has considered all the options available to you in advance.

When things change,
we adapt

There is no way to force the other party to be reasonable or to come to the table. However, relying on the Family Court to resolve the matter could mean putting your life on hold for up to three years, given the volume of other cases in the Family Court.

We deal with circumstances where the other party is openly hostile, being difficult, or dragging their feet. We monitor what is happening on the other side and proactively take steps to defuse and deflate the situation. We explore all possible dispute resolution options, not just Family Court litigation, and examine all proposals to help engage the other party in finding a constructive resolution.
