Family Law Property Dispute Lawyers

It is important to secure your financial future. Speaking to our lawyers early on might assist you in identifying key ways to resolve a matter early, or take preventative action to avoid you being disadvantaged.

Sometime it is important that you secure funds in a separate account away from somebody’s ability to drawn down. Sometimes it is about securing evidence and documents before you leave a house. Sometimes it is about special personal effects and memories that may not be available to you later. Whatever your situation, early advice will help.

Once you are working out a property settlement, our team of lawyers will provide you with practical, strategic advice, along with a range of likely outcomes for you to consider. It is then a matter of implementing the plan and working towards an outcome that you are content with, and reacting intelligently along the way without losing sight of the bigger picture.

We advise on property disputes ranging from amicable, straightforward deals, to complex structures involving multiple Trusts, companies, and corporate structures. We work closely with experts including accountants, real estate valuers and asset valuation experts to make sure you have all the information you need.

We also work with you to resolve and identify issues of spousal maintenance or spousal support, when this might apply to you, and how to deal with this in a way that is fair to you.

Speak to us now to see how we can help, no matter where in your property separation you are.
