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.
