Family and Defacto Law

A marriage breakdown is one of the most stressful situations that you may encounter in life. How you deal with it will depend on many things, which is why caring, compassionate and experienced legal help is important.

Every family law matter should consider two very finely balanced things: an expert level of understanding of the practice and procedure of the law, and an appropriate level of compassion and understanding.

I have practiced in the area of Family Law for many decades. I have seen the laws with respect to Family Law change radically, whether it be in relation to children’s issues, superannuation and more recently, de facto relationships. My experience, commitment and dedication to the developments in the law will ensure that you have the most expert and professional service available.

I offer clients that level of service whilst remaining objective so as to appropriately advise you on all available options.

As with all legal matters, Family Law issues are handled in complete confidence, with compassion and understanding.

  • Divorce proceedings
  • Parenting disputes

  • Spousal maintenance
  • Child support
