The right family lawyer has your best interests at heart.

The Family Lawyer is committed to exceptional Family Law services. We know trusting someone to help secure that envisioned personal and financial future at the end of an important relationship, is a big step.

family law representation in Melbourne and Brisbane

When choosing Family Law representation, a series of factors must be taken into account, including specialist experience, cost-effective services, and the ability to communicate with you in a clear and empathetic way.

Consider and assess the situation

Is it possible to reach an agreement without legal intervention? Can interactions between parties remain amicable? If civil dialogue and clear communication is not proving viable, it may be time to procure legal representation.

The right family lawyer can help you avoid furthering a toxic situation. Amicable settlements are always the goal. Choosing to engage family law services should produce the relief of positive and affordable results.

Defining an achievable vision

A quality family lawyer will help you understand the fine print of the law pertaining to your present situation. Effective representation will prioritise keeping both parties out of court if possible, saving time, money, and effort.

The Family Lawyer will always represent you with empathy and compassion, while providing an idea of realistic resolutions. With professional and personal experience in Family Law, we understand every stage of the journey.

Don’t underestimate accessibility

Coming to a legal resolution can be an ongoing process. This is why location and convenience matter. If you need to urgently discuss development in person, can you easily visit the firm from your place of work?

The Family Lawyer now has offices across Victoria in Boronia, Frankston, and Geelong, as well as in Gold Coast in Queensland. Not only are we experienced and trustworthy, but we’re also accessible in a practical sense.

Source appropriate representation

Research the experience and qualifications of potential legal representation. Will your lead issue be property settlement or child custody? Make sure your lawyer has expertise with the necessary Family Law services.

The Family Lawyer offers a range of representation. Members of our talented team are qualified across numerous areas of Family Law, while others prefer to specialise. Whatever the situation, know that we can help.

Evaluate performance record

The internet is an invaluable tool when trying to determine the standard of service you can expect from a Family Law firm. Many people choose to outline the positives and negatives of their experience with a family lawyer online.

Google reviews can offer useful insight into a firm’s past performance. While most businesses have one or two disgruntled reviews, the key is to focus on the general pattern. The majority should be overwhelmingly positive.
