Professional family law services in Geelong

Family Law

Our family law team understand the impact of separation on families, businesses and third parties. Each matter is unique and requires consideration of multiple options to achieve an ideal resolution, which is tailored to our clients’ circumstances.

We regularly resolve disputes through conciliation and mediation to provide our clients with a cost-effective and timely resolution for family disputes. In the event that these avenues are unsuccessful, our practitioners appear in State and Federal Courts in both Melbourne and Geelong to obtain a judicial determination of our clients’ claims. We can also appear in interstate matters, should the need arise.

Our team has a wide breadth of experience in areas of parenting and property disputes, child support, family violence, intervention orders and child protection. Their knowledge and sensitivity will help you address any concerns, identify the issues and inform you of your options while supporting you in resolving disputes in a manner that provides clarity and certainty to yourself and your family.
