Lance is the best family solicitor I have ever worked with. I knew Lance since 2019 when my child custody case started. From our first meeting, he explained everything to me in terms I could easily understand and was always very responsive when I had questions outside of our meetings. If anyone is looking for a trustworthy and knowledgeable solicitor. Arcadian legal is highly recomended

Personalised advice and counsel

Family issues can be emotionally charged and complex to understand. We provide tailored advice and counsel, giving you an honest picture of your situation so you can make an informed decision with all the facts in hand.

Out-of-court settlements

Court battles are mentally and physically draining. And, the result may be out of your hands. In most cases, we settle most matters out of court to save you the expense and stress of a court battle while still getting you a positive result.

We help people in all family stages

Married couples

Whether same-sex or heterosexual, all married couples can go through issues that may need legal assistance. Having gone through nearly every situation between married couples, we are well-placed to give you the tailored counsel you need to deal with your situation as best as possible.


From child custody, child support and parenting orders to any other issue that may affect your child, we are here to help. We have in-depth knowledge of family law related to child matters. Our negotiation skills are honed to deliver the best possible outcomes especially in the best interests of your child.

De facto partners

De facto partners may also go through similar issues such as property and financial disputes or regarding parenting rights. We provide invaluable legal assistance to help you understand your rights in a de facto relationship, so that you and your ex can find common ground and reach a solution.

Young couples planning on marriage

Those planning on getting married may want to find a way to protect their assets earned or inherited before the relationship started. This may involve setting up binding financial agreements and more. We can help you better understand your rights and obligations to protect yourself before you get married.


We can help with

Child custody and support

Divorcing couples may find it challenging to agree on the amount of child support, co-parenting and child custody arrangements. A family lawyer such as Arcadian Legal can give you all the facts and negotiate on your behalf to come to a mutually agreeable settlement with your ex without an expensive court battle.

Divorce and separation

If you’re thinking of divorcing or separating, we can help you understand your rights and obligations depending on your particular situation. It’s important to get experienced legal counsel so you get the right advice especially in situations where the divorce or separation is less than amicable.

Pre-nuptial and binding financial agreement needs

Binding financial agreements provide a clear roadmap for handling various financial matters, offering peace of mind and protection for both parties involved. The clarity of how financial matters will be handled in a separation or divorce reduces ambiguity and minimises potential disputes in the future.

Property disputes

Property matters can turn ugly during a divorce or separation, which is why it is important to know where you legally stand. We are compassionate and know how stressful being in this situation can be, assuring you of clear and objective advice to help you achieve the best possible result.
