Marriage breakdown is considered to be one of the most stressful situations that you may encounter in life. How you cope with it will depend on many things, which is why caring, compassionate and experienced legal help is so important.

Our Family & Defacto Law Team understands the trauma you are experiencing and we will do our best to manage your best interests through a difficult time.

You are not alone; we have the expertise to get you through a divorce or separation and any complex property settlement that might arise.

Our family lawyers have been helping the people of NSW cope with these tough situations and move on with their lives since 1969.

  • Children – we are experienced in ensuring your best interests and those of your children are protected – clear advice and action on living arrangements for children, child support and more. This includes parenting plans and consent orders.
