Areas of Family Law Family Lawyers Can Help You With

Family law is an interesting and multi-faceted area of law that often intersects with many other areas of the law. Family lawyers in Melbourne typically help clients with cases involving divorce, estate settlement and child custody. Here are some areas of family law a family lawyer can help you with.


Family lawyers are often tasked with helping couples to initiate and advance the process of getting a divorce. They can also help clients with any custody or asset settlement issues that arise during or after the divorce.

PreNups or Binding Financial Agreements

Binding financial agreements are commonly known as pre-nups, even though they are used after a couple separates as well. A Binding financial agreement is exactly that – binding. It requires both parties to get independent legal advice and a lawyer can help advise or draft one to suit. Before you decide on how you are going to divide your assets, it is important to get an indication from a lawyer as to how property pools are typically divided. This will make sure you know what is fair in your circumstances.

Child Custody

Family court lawyers in Melbourne often assist couples going through the divorce process with their child custody arrangements. If you’re going through a divorce, child custody lawyers can help you navigate the complex process of resolving child custody issues as well as help you arrange visitation schedules and child support arrangements.
