Family and Relationships
Property and Financial Matters
Property settlements can involve the family home and contents; family trusts and self managed superannuation funds; and family businesses and corporate business structures.
No matter what the situation, it is personal to you. We are experts who understand divorce is stressful, and you may not know the corporate or family structure intimately, but we know how to navigate the process and inform you.
Parenting and Custody Arrangements
If children are involved in your separation and divorce, we recommend you first try and come up with a parenting plan you can both work with. If you can’t, we can help you understand the law and how it will apply to your circumstance.
That will require an understanding of your family – not just you and the kids, but your partner, step parents, and even grandparents. Then there is choice of schools, and who pays the fees, medical and dental issues.
There are layers involved and we have the understanding to explain what is reasonable and what is negotiable.
Divorce & Separation
If you are at the stage where separation and divorce is inevitable then that’s when you need to call us on 4902 3800; or, send us an email on [email protected]
When you make up your mind you need advice, that’s when you meet with one of our expert lawyers and you tell us your story and we listen. You may need information so you can make the tough decision to separate and divorce, or your partner may have made the decision first, and you need to know what you have to do, and when.
