Results for family law clients

Our family and divorce lawyers have resolved family law issues of all kinds for clients, from large property settlements to complex child relocation issues, including:

  • Multi-million dollar property settlements, several of which we settled in our client’s favour before the trial date, saving them the added stress, expense and delay of court proceedings;
  • An international child relocation matter where the Family Court sanctioned the child to live with our client outside Australia;
  • A de facto property settlement, complicated by the fact that we had to first show that a de facto relationship existed;
  • Drafting Binding Financial Agreements for clients with large asset pools to protect children from previous relationships;
  • Resolving the majority of our clients’ property and parenting matters by negotiation without resorting to Court proceedings;
  • A child custody matter, where we acted for the grandparents to remove the children from parents who both had drug and mental health issues;
  • Complex property settlements where we successfully litigated and received favourable Court Orders for our client in matters involving multiple family trusts, and companies, Self-Managed Super funds and several real properties;
  • Parenting matters where one parent has obtained final Family Court Orders for sole parental responsibility and the children to live with them;
  • Assisted indigenous foster parents in the Children’s Court with proceedings dealing with their foster child;
  • Successfully acted for Applicants in respect to obtaining Interim and final Protection Orders;
  • Successfully defended respondents so that Protection Order Applications against them were withdrawn or made for minimal periods of time.
