Out-of-court settlements

Court proceedings can be daunting and costly. Where possible and aligned with our clients’ preferences, we look to resolve cases amicably out of court. This approach helps avoid prolonged legal conflicts, allowing both parties to move forward quicker.

We help people in all family stages

Married couples

Couples may encounter issues such as divorce, spousal support, separation, child support and child custody. We understand these challenges and offer expert advice and legal guidance to help our clients achieve a fair resolution.


The laws around child custody and support are not easy for the layperson to understand, which is where we step in to help our clients better understand their rights and responsibilities so they can make informed decisions.

De facto partners

De facto partners often have the same rights and responsibilities as married couples. When you need legal counsel, we manage issues such as child custody, property issues and child support on your behalf.

Young couples planning on marriage

We provide guidance on binding financial agreements for young couples who wish to establish clear agreements regarding financial assets before or during marriage. This minimises the risk of disputes if the relationship were to end.


We can help with

Child custody and support

We aim to protect your rights and ensure your voice is heard whether it is for a consent order, parenting plan or another child custody or support related agreement.

Divorce and separation

We understand the toll of divorce and separation and work diligently to achieve the best possible outcomes while providing empathetic support throughout the process.

Pre-nuptial and binding financial agreements

We can help protect our clients’ interests through binding financial or pre-nuptial agreements, which outline clear asset division terms and reduce the risk of conflicts.

Property disputes

Property disputes can emerge from situations such as death, separation or divorce and can be complex without proper legal guidance, which we can help with.
