Family & De Facto Law
Legal expertise

Our Family & De Facto Lawyers are highly experienced in helping people navigate the often-painful area of relationship breakdown and divorce. We are sensitive to your needs and do all we can to expedite a practical solution that takes good care of the interests of you and your children.

Where possible, our Family & De Facto Lawyers seek to help you achieve an amicable resolution with your spouse or de facto partner via Consent Orders for division of property, Parenting Orders for children’s issues or Binding Financial Agreements (both pre-nuptial and during marriage). We also prepare Child Support Agreements.

This approach saves our clients significant time, stress and expense when compared with contested (court-based) outcomes.
