What Do Family Court Lawyers Do?

Working with family lawyers can help you easily navigate some complex legal issues such as divorce, child custody and other family law disputes. Our family court lawyers can help in the following matters and more:

Initiating Divorce

If you want to file for divorce, family court lawyers in Melbourne can help you to initiate the process. Firstly, you might need information or assistance on what your legal rights are or to manage the process for you. We can also help from start to finish and assist you in securing terms for after the divorce that may be best for your situation.

Dividing Assets and working out your entitlements

One of the biggest issues in a divorce is working out what you are entitled to after separation. Dividing assets is based on many factors and therefore unique to your circumstances. Family lawyers in Melbourne are usually tasked with helping a divorcing couple to negotiate a fair division of assets with their spouse. We can help from early negotiations, mediation or representation in the Federal Circuit and Family Court of Australia (Family Court).

Child Custody

A divorcing couple with children will be required to work out child custody and visitation arrangements before a divorce is granted. Your family lawyer can help you negotiate a parenting plan and obtain parenting orders that suits. Where one party is denying access we can help provide advice and clarification on what your legal rights are and help you get access to your children.

If you have any issues with a de facto separation, we can help. De facto couples and married couples have similar issues, whilst some of the legal requirements are different. We can help you from the early stages if you are just trying to work out what the process is and what your options are to handling complex family court disputes.
