Warragul Family Law Services
Our firm’s dedication to family law is unmatched. We recognise the intense emotional turmoil that is associated with divorce and other family law matters, so we provide a compassionate environment for our clients to work through these challenges. Our mastery of this area of law is based on decades of experience practicing family law in Warragul. Our firm works in all areas of family law, though we have particular expertise in the following fields.
Divorce and property agreements
Often one of the most contentious issues in family law, divorce in Australia can be a difficult process. We can help you understand the options available to you, and how to navigate the legal issues involved in negotiating a separation agreement or getting an order for divorce.
We always look after your side when we represent you, and this is particularly true when it comes to property agreements. We will help you assess your options and provide expert advice on the best way to divide property, as well as assist you with the valuation or transfer of assets.
And if you cannot come to an agreement with your former spouse, we will vigorously defend your interests in court.
Divorce is never easy for anyone, but we can guide you through this difficult time in a supportive and knowledgeable manner.
Child custody and access orders
The development of a child is an enormous responsibility. In most cases, the law says that both parents are responsible for raising their children and making decisions about them.
When there is a divorce or a disagreement between the two parents, courts will make orders to decide who has what rights and responsibilities in relation to the children. We can provide advice and representation on all aspects of separation, including child custody arrangements, financial support, and parenting arrangements.
Courts look solely at what is right for the child and decide what is in their best interest. Courts may order access, where one or both parents have contact with the children through phone calls, letters, and visits to make sure they stay in touch.
We will defend your access to the children so that you may continue to have the best possible relationship with them. And if your ex is not suitable to have contact with the children, we will advocate for that in court as well.
There are times in Australian law when paternity is a concern. We can help you establish paternity if there are any doubts and then support your efforts to have the father provide financial support.
Our lawyers will help you petition the court to have them order a paternity test if it is needed. In this way, the court can ensure that fathers are held accountable for their obligations as parents, such as providing financial maintenance or access to a shared residence.
Because the determination of paternity also means the father has standing in parental proceedings, we will simultaneously work to ensure that you remain the primary caregiver of the child and make sure the child is protected from harm.
Of course, there are many other areas of family law that we regularly practice. Name changes, domestic violence, and juvenile matters are all areas in which we have expertise and can help.
