Family Legal Advice

Seeking family legal advice on separation, finances and children puts our clients in the best position to navigate the separation process. Suitable either before you separate or after.

Timing is important...

If your relationship is at an end, or you are contemplating separation, it is paramount that you understand your rights and obligations regarding the law – the earlier the better. Obtaining initial family legal advice from experienced family law practitioners is crucial to obtaining the best possible outcome with the minimum amount of stress and cost.

Family law can be difficult territory to navigate and no two cases are the same, as each one will turn on its own facts and circumstances. As such, we recommend making a list of questions pertaining to your situation, such as:

  • Can I keep the house?
  • Will the kids stay with me? 
  • What if my former partner wants full custody of the kids?
  • Will I have enough money to survive?
  • What % of our assets should I get?

Following this, set up an initial appointment and we’ll provide answers as well as help you consider the potential consequences of how you could proceed.
