Resolve your disputes respectfully, peacefully, and privately
Every family law situation is different. Most people are not equipped to go through the process of separation alone and benefit from the right advice at the right time, from experienced professionals.
As experts in all aspects of Family Law, our team of Family Lawyers and Mediators are here to help whatever your situation - amicable, hostile, or anywhere in between.
Separation is a big life-changing decision. Whether it is your choice or not, you need to know where you stand legally and financially and how to protect the wellbeing of your children. Our team at Resolve Conflict will assemble the facts and outline your options while supporting you to choose the most appropriate pathway to get you to resolution. Even if separation is not your choice it may happen anyway and if it does you need to have the best team by your side.
That's great news and an early agreement is an ideal position to be in. That said it will still be important to make sure your agreement is made legally binding so that you can move into the future with certainty.
Our Family Law team works with you to ensure all essential legal, financial, children's matters and other aspects of your matter are documented sensibly and reliably. Your agreement, even if written down and signed by both of you, is not binding or enforceable by itself.
That's terrific. Our team at Resolve Conflict will work with you to iron out those things that are not quite agreed and support you to reach a mutually agreed outcome. Our Family Lawyers and our Family Mediators can work with you individually or as a couple to facilitate your negotiations providing you with guidance as to your options and the cost and benefits of different alternatives open to you.
Even though you may be worlds apart and agreement seems impossible most people achieve it in the end. Our experienced team is highly skilled in working with these situations and can guide and support you to work through the issues and develop and evaluate options that can assist you to find a pathway to agreement.
Whatever your situation we can guide and support you while it is getting sorted. It may be that you or your partner are moving interstate or overseas and parenting arrangements need to be worked out. Or there may be a family business, with other partners and lenders that need to be untangled. You might have signed a prenuptial agreement or binding financial agreement and want to know if it will be enforceable or you might need maintenance or child support to pay rent and bills. Maybe you've been self-representing or need to change lawyers.
Whatever your circumstances, we can help. Our experienced Family Law Team will guide and help you through your situation no matter how complicated, surrounding you with the right legal advice and other resources to get things sorted so you can move forward in your life.
When you are feeling threatened or vulnerable, when there is a power imbalance that prevents negotiation on a level playing field, or maybe you feel intimidated by your current circumstances or your former partner, the Team at Resolve Conflict are here to help.
We are your advocates and will support you to make appropriate decisions without fear or pressure. We will negotiate on your behalf, assist you with personal protection and the development of a safety plan if you are feeling threatened.
While Court is rarely our option of first choice, sometimes it is both necessary and unavoidable. The Family Court provides an independent ruling on matters where the parties have been unable to reach agreement. When this happens our experience in many major litigation matters over the last 40 years ensures that your case will be handled by the best and gives you the greatest opportunity for a favourable outcome. We work regularly with some of Australia's top Barristers and Silks, Child Experts and Forensic Accountants to ensure your case gets the best hearing possible from the Court.
Court proceedings can be mentally and emotionally draining, however with the support of a knowledgeable and strong Family law Litigation Team you will be best placed to come through the Court experience.
At Resolve Conflict our Family lawyers have expertise in all family-related matters including but not limited to the following:
