Family Law Solicitors deal with domestic and matrimonial legal matters involving you and your family; including your spouse, your partner, your children and the family home.
Family law can be as simple or as complex as the relationships they govern – there is never a ‘one-size-fits-all’ solution that will work for every family experiencing life’s many curve-balls so it’s important that, if you suddenly find yourself needing the advice or services of a family lawyer, you find one that is best for you and your family.
It’s not easy making the decision to approach a lawyer; this may be a particularly stressful and scary time in your life, filled with many unknowns that have left you feeling lost and vulnerable. Our family lawyers are experienced in a wide range of family law matters; they’ll be able to lend a listening, compassionate ear but also offer sound, sage legal advice that’s tailored to you.
All legal matters are treated with complete confidence by a team of dedicated and well-experienced family law solicitors, from first contact right through to finalisation of a matter. The services will be tailored so as to meet your individual needs and in full consideration of what is best for you and your family.
Our family lawyers are all experts in the field of law, with may years’ experience. Insofar as is possible, your lawyer will attempt to resolve most issues without the need to go to court. Court proceedings are financially and emotionally taxing, and we do not make the recommendation to go to court except as a last resort when all other methods of dispute resolution have been exhausted. If you do end up needing court representation in a family-related matter, our team has the necessary skills and experience to appear for you and ensure you obtain the best possible outcome.
Our dedicated team of family law solicitors are specialists in a range of family law areas:
- Divorce and separation, including de facto and same sex relationships;
- Parenting matters, including family dispute resolution, arranging access to children and child support;
- Property and financial settlements, including spousal maintenance;
- Pre-nuptial agreements;
- Domestic violence; and
- All other areas of family law, as required.
At East Coast Family Lawyers, we have a team of solicitors who have a wealth of experience in family law. With our compassionate approach, attention to detail and expert knowledge in the field, we are confident that we can offer you affordable, expert advice that’s tailored to meet your specific needs.
