Who We Are

Meillon & Bright Legal is a law firm dedicated solely to the practice of family law. We have offices servicing Perth, Western Australia and Sydney, New South Wales (in Sydney city and on Sydney’s northern beaches). This is what we do all day, every day so we’re fully informed about all aspects and consider ourselves highly experienced family lawyers.

We appreciate the emotion and stress associated with the breakdown of a relationship for our clients, their families and friends and of course, any children of the relationship. We feel privileged to be able to assist our clients through what are often difficult times, and are committed to reducing the stress and anxiety created as a result of the breakdown of a relationship.

In addition to working with those clients who need assistance after the breakdown of their relationship, we are fortunate to work with many clients who require our assistance with the path of surrogacy and adoption.

Our promise to you is to:

  • Provide realistic and common-sense advice;
  • Always work towards a fair and satisfactory result;
  • And promote an amicable outcome for both parties (where possible).

We can assist you with services related to:

  • Your divorce proceedings;
  • Arrangements for your children, including child support;
  • Property settlement;
  • Binding financial agreements (prenuptial agreements);
  • Spousal maintenance
  • Advice regarding separation;
  • Mediation;
  • Domestic violence matters; and
  • Navigating the complex legal pathways of surrogacy and adoption.
