Our Family lawyers can provide advice and representation on children’s issues; and limited advice about property in marriage and defacto relationships. Please note that representation is limited by resources & prioritisation. More details on our Family Law services are as follows:

Children’s Matters

Our Family Lawyers can assist with most children’s matters including but not limited to parental responsibility orders, “spend time with orders”, relocation issues, Hague Convention issues, and issues dealing with at risk children. Note: we do not deal with child matters involving the Department of Child Protection.

Limited Advice about property in marriage/defacto relationships

Our lawyers provide limited advice about property settlements in marriage and defacto relationships. This is due to the fact that we are limited by resources and prioritisation, noting that childrens matters will take priority over property settlement matters.

Family (Domestic) Violence, Divorce and Separation

We also provide advice on divorce, separation, family (domestic) violence and restraining orders.
