Family Law

Family Law is a sensitive area of practice which requires compassion as well as comprehensive legal attention with respect to a multitude of family and domestic issues in order to minimize any distress caused to our clients.

We recognize that disputes of this nature are usually emotionally charged and may involve issues of separation, property, children and/or divorce.  Our team has considerable experience in resolving family law matters with a collaborative approach to dealing with disputes which encourages negotiation and mediation for the good of all concerned.

As the well-being of our client is of primary concern we are committed to the earliest resolution of any dispute and will explore all grounds in dispute between the parties through negotiation, alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods and finally, as is often necessary, litigation and court proceedings.

Our expertise includes (but is not limited to) the following areas of law:

  • Divorce
  • Custody and Parenting
  • Child Support
  • Guardianship
  • Spousal Maintenance
  • Division of Assets
  • Financial and Termination Agreements
  • De-facto Relationships
