Family Lawyer Melbourne

“I have had the absolute pleasure of dealing with Richard Hamilton of Nevett Ford Lawyers for the past eight months during an incredibly stressful and painful separation. Richard was both knowledgeable and kind in his dealings with me, his advice was open and honest and I was directed to the best conclusion possible with calmness and consideration. He always made time to speak to me if I called and every email was answered promptly and respectfully. Richard is a first class lawyer, who is both compassionate and driven, achieving the best result possible in difficult circumstances.”

Our family law lawyers in Melbourne CBD have a wealth of experience assisting clients, dealing with a full range of simple to very complex property law matters, from parenting disputes and intervention orders to criminal charges.

Members of the team include Senior Lawyer Richard Hamilton, Lawyer Erin Trantino and paralegal Stacey Raphael.

As the top family law firm in Melbourne, our lawyers regularly, our lawyers regularly deal with helping people going through a separation to obtain an outcome that they are happy with both in relation to property and parenting matters. We deal with complex intermingled trust and company issues, but also help with working out how the family home and your superannuation can be best protected, or fairly apportioned between parties.

We often provide advice to clients at the beginning of relationships to help them achieve better asset protection structures, or to ensure that they have clarity about what would happen in the unlikely event of a separation. Often, we draft financial agreements, or ‘pre nups’ in these situations.

Our team also deals with all types of divorce, spousal maintenance, intervention order and breach of intervention order matters. We have an extensive network of referrers who can also assist you with taxation advice, further financial planning, or more complex criminal matters.

Nevett Ford’s team of family lawyers in Melbourne difference is that we genuinely believe in putting our client’s experience of the legal system and our service as a priority. This means we are open and transparent with you about the process, and the cost, of our service and the family law.
