Family Law

Separation, divorce and de facto relationship breakdowns create an enormous minefield of emotional turmoil, even when handled in a civilised manner, let alone when extreme personal conflicts contribute to the mix.

Emotions run hot, heightened by the legal aspects of your situation: securing your rights, protecting your children, your finances, your property entitlements - just to mention the basics.

You’ll want to know what steps are involved in separation/divorce proceedings, how to work out the right arrangements for your children, how to safeguard your financial security, and you’ll want to fully understand your options so you can avoid costly mistakes.
