Family Law

You may be entering into a relationship and wish to set out the “Rules” of that relationship or you may already be in a relationship where you want to clarify the “Rules” of the relationship.

Or you may be in a dispute and wish to resolve that dispute.

A family dispute is emotional and stressful enough without trying to navigate the maze of rules, legislation and court procedures on your own. Family law disputes usually revolve around three important areas: your children, your property and your future.

  • Children’s matters: protection and maintenance;
  • Collaborative law
  • Contraventions and/or enforcement of orders

Domestic Violence

You have the right to feel safe.

If you feel unsafe within your home or personal relationships, it may be necessary for you to consider a domestic violence protection order.

Domestic violence protection orders should only be sought in the appropriate circumstances, as they can place significant limitations on an alleged offender’s liberty.

We can assist you as follows:

  • Victims of domestic violence applying for a protection order;
  • Responding to an application for a protection order.

If you have immediate and serious concerns for your safety, go to your local police station.
