Family Law

We can assist with all matters arising from the breakdown of relationships including:

  • Preparation for Separation
  • Children’s arrangements
  • Domestic Violence and Protection Order matters
  • Financial Arrangements and Property Settlement
  • De Facto Relationship matters
  • Binding Financial Agreements (Cohabitation / Prenuptial Agreements)
  • Spousal Maintenance
  • Divorce

The law relating to family breakdowns is complex and it is important that you seek legal advice as early as possible preferably well before separation. Each family’s experience of separation is different and tailored approaches to dealing with your circumstances are vital.   

Your interests will be best served by ensuring we have an intimate understanding of your life circumstances.

Relationship breakdowns can have a devastating effect, not only on those directly involved but also children, friends and other family members. The consequences are not only practical, for example dealing with property and how the children spend time with the parents; but also the emotional impact.

The team at Everingham Lawyers can offer professional help with the practical issues. We will protect your long term interests during this vulnerable time. You will appreciate our sensitive and friendly guidance as you have to make tough decisions.

Our role is to help you navigate your way through challenges that may arise as quickly and with as minimal damage, both emotionally and financially as possible. There are a number of ways including mediation and negotiation that can be explored before having to go to court.  

We can provide you with all the relevant information you need to make informed choices about how your separation can be dealt with to best suit your families situation.
