I truly appreciate the efforts put in by the Solicitors from Milton office. I was able to book an urgent free consultation on Saturday and they actioned on my matter promptly.

Divorce is simply a legal finalisation of a marriage. Divorce matters are determined by Courts and can become complex if the parties were separated under one roof or there are difficulties in location and serving another party with Court documents.
Seeking assistance and legal advice from a family lawyer is strongly advised to guide you through the divorce process and prevent potential difficulties in your divorce proceedings.
We offer fixed fees for our representation in all Divorce matters.
Family Law Parenting Matters
Our lawyers have dealt with a large number of parenting matters including complex cases with family violence and abuse involved.
However, in the majority of situations parenting disputes are capable to be resolved by parents at early stages without involving Courts.
In contrast, complex parenting matters are often urgent and require immediate action.
Our lawyers will advise you and propose the best possible cause of action depending on your circumstances.
Family Law Property Matters
Our lawyers help clients in property settlement and spousal maintenance cases. Our duty is to advise our clients in relation to his/her entitlements and the process of legal proceedings with an aim of finalising a property settlement matter as fast as possible with the best achievable outcome.
There is a common misconception that all property settlements should be split 50/50. However, the law provides that there is no such presumption.
When it comes to property settlements, whether parties agree by consent (Consent Orders) or it is dealt by way of initiating application in the Family Court, the courts must be satisfied that the final percentage split is “just and equitable” i.e. fair to both parties.
The courts follow a four step process set out in the legislation (Section 79(4) of the Family Law Act 1975 or Section 205ZG(4) of the Family Court Act 1997) to determine what the percentage split should be in each individual matter.
The four step process is as follows:
Firstly, the courts must Identify and value the assets and liabilities of the parties;
Secondly, the courts must consider the contributions of the parties (this includes, initial contributions, and contributions during the relationship both financial and non-financial contributions);
Thirdly, the courts must identify the future needs aspect of the parties (usually, this entails the care of children under 18, the age of the parties, earning capacity of the parties); and
Finally, the courts must ensure that the division is “just and equitable”, in other words “is the division fair?” Therefore, it is not always a 50/50 result, as each case is individual and depend on varying factors.
