Family law matters are generally very stressful and require particular understanding and sensitive handling. With more than 30 years assisting clients in the field of divorce, property settlement issues, spousal maintenance, child support, access, custody and guardianship, we are competent to advise in this area.
We have over 3 decades’ experience in advising in relation to financial agreements pursuant to the Family Law Act, including pre- and post-nuptial agreements between fiancés and married spouses, financial agreements between de facto and prospective de facto couples (heterosexual and same-sex relationships), separation and cohabitation agreements.
It is important for individuals to know how to protect their individual assets and sources of income on separation, particularly in cases where the individuals entering the relationship have established estates of value and are seeking protection in the event of separation.
Many people do not realise until it is too late, that without a valid, binding financial agreement, they may have to share assets and inheritances with their spouse on separation.
Often, by the time people realise the need for an appropriate agreement it is too late to rectify the situation.
We have a panel of well-qualified and experienced barristers who are briefed, depending upon the nature and complexity of the matter.
Services and areas of advisory include:
- Property settlements
- De facto relationships
- Child orders and parenting
- Child residence and contact
- Spousal maintenance and child support
