Family Law and Estates
Our family law and estates team provides advice and representation across a wide range of family law and estate planning issues.
We can assist you in relation to:
- Issues relating to marriage and de facto relationships;
- Property settlements;
- Children’s matters;
- Spousal maintenance claims;
- Child and adult-child maintenance claims;
- Relocation matters;
- Hague Convention matters;
- Adoption and surrogacy; and
- Wills, probate and estate planning.
We are mindful of the sensitive nature of family law matters and aim to resolve these matters in an efficient, timely and cost effective manner, with the least disruption possible to the families involved, and with our clients’ short term and long term needs in mind.
Where appropriate, we aim to resolve matters by participating in various forms of primary dispute resolution in an effort to avoid court proceedings.
Where litigation cannot be avoided, our solicitors will ensure that our client’s interests are presented in a coherent and effective manner, with the greatest effort to ensure the protection of families’ and our clients’ interests.
Our solicitors can further assist you with a wide range of estate issues, some of which may flow from family law matters.
We understand that no two matters are the same, and that one client’s needs may differ from another. Our aim is to provide all of our clients with personalised, practical advice and effective legal representation.
