Areas of Practice

We specialise in all facets of family law, from initial inquiries when you’re considering separation but have not yet taken the first steps through to the finalisation of divorce, property settlement and matters related to children and parenting.

When separating from your partner, it’s crucial that you understand your rights, your obligations and your entitlements. Although things may be amicable at the time of separation, they may not stay that way. We strongly recommend you formalise all your family law decisions to protect your future.

That may be to finalise your family law property settlement, formalise agreement on future parenting arrangements, draft a financial agreement between you and your partner or any other issue that may arise after separation.
