Family law deals with particular family matters like divorce, your children and your property. Most family law issues in Australia are covered by the Family Law Act. If you are married or in a de facto relationship, the Family Law Act will cover any disagreements you might have about your children and/or property.
When families separate, arrangements for the kids are sometimes decided between the parents alone and sometimes with the help of a Judge or Federal Magistrate at the family law courts. When parents can't agree, the main thing the Judge or Federal Magistrate will think about before making a decision is what’s best for the kids. It can be really confusing for kids when families break up. You might be feeling many different emotions and don't understand why.

There are alternatives to Court that sometimes can be very effective in resolving separation issues. In fact, a competent Family Lawyer will discuss all of these options with you long before ever recommending court as a dispute resolution method. The important thing is to identify the one that suits your situation best.
We recognise that being a family lawyer means much more than just giving legal advice. The breakdown of a relatioship or marriage can be one of the most stressful and traumatic times in a person's life, and we always promote outcomes that focus on the best interests of the children.
