Family Law

Our team has extensive and considerable experience in all aspects of Family Law. We provide comprehensive advice on all family law matters. We offer representation at every court level. In matters involving children we strive to protect them from the impact of litigation. Our approach is to achieve a cost-effective resolution while minimising the impact of litigation on the parties. We always encourage non-confrontational resolutions where possible, particularly mediation and collaboration because clients will often do better if the case can be settled outside Court or by negotiation, mediation or other alternative dispute resolution.

Property Disputes
