Family Law

Custody disputes

We work with you to settle the matter in a child focused manner.

 

The break up of a relationship is usually a very stressful time. We understand this, and realise that most people have not had to deal with such a situation before.  We can help you deal with these issues and make decisions for your future and the future of your children.  You need to make decisions that are sensible, practical, workable and give you some security.  We know that you do not want to deal with it in a costly, time consuming and argumentative fashion.

We can help with things such as:

  • negotiating an agreement with your ex partner in regard to property and/or children’s custody issues, and obtaining court Orders to set out any agreement reached between you and your ex partner, and
  • applying to the court for appropriate Orders for you if no agreement can be reached.

If there are court orders in regard to your children, and your ex partner is not complying with them, we can apply to the court for what are known as ‘Contravention Orders’.

Property disputes

We realise that this isn't just a legal issue, but it impacts your life as well.

 

We can help with things such as:

  • negotiating a formal Binding Financial Agreement about property issues, or
  • applying to the court for appropriate Orders for you if no agreement can be reached.

We can help you after the end of a relationship, or at the beginning of a new one.  There are family law and estate planning matters to be taken into account in both situations and our lawyers are experienced in both areas.

We appreciate that you just want to finalise the property and move on, but we also want to help you to deal with it in a way that is actually final and not just in a way that is cheap and quick.
