Out-of-Court Settlements

Going to court can be stressful and expensive. We try to amicably settle most cases out of court where appropriate, and according to the wishes of our clients. Settling out of court avoids prolonged battles, allowing both parties to move on with their lives quickly.

We help people in all family stages

Married couples

Married couples face challenges like separation, divorce, spousal support, and child custody. We empathise, offering professional advice and strategies for a successful outcome based on your unique situation.


Navigating child custody and support can be challenging without proper support. With extensive experience, Arcadian Legal is here to help you comprehend your rights and obligations in similar matters, ensuring informed decisions are made.

De facto partners

Separated de facto partners share the same rights and responsibilities as divorced couples. For legal advice or representation, we handle aspects like property settlements, child custody, and child support on your behalf.

Young couples planning on marriage

Secure clear agreements on financial assets pre-marriage or during marriage. We offer guidance on binding financial agreements, minimising the potential for disputes in the event of a relationship breakdown.

Child custody and support are complex. We protect your rights and ensure your voice is heard in parenting plans, consent orders, and more.

Divorce and separation

During divorce and separation, it often gets intense. Arcadian Legal empathises, working diligently for the best results and providing compassionate support.

Pre-nuptial and binding financial agreements

Binding financial agreements, commonly known as ‘pre-nuptial’ agreements, safeguard each party’s interests, ensuring a clear asset division plan to prevent disputes post-divorce or separation.

Property disputes

Property disputes arise from death, separation, or divorce. Without proper legal advice, handling them can be costly. We ensure optimal outcomes based on your circumstances.
