During the initial consultation we will assess your personal circumstances and provide you with tailored advice about your property entitlements or about child custody issues.
We also give you a detailed outline of the costs that you will be potentially facing depending on the complexity of the matter. In the event we are able to, we will offer you a fixed rate.

Why do you need an experienced Family Lawyer?
Firstly, you may want to obtain information about family law before consulting a family lawyer.
Our website has an extensive family law blog and pages that will provide a good introduction to family law in Australia.
We have provided this free resource to the public to ensure that they are informed of their rights and about family law in Australia.
The guides have been reviewed by one of our experienced family lawyers.
Secondly, you may find more information on family and separation on the Family Court of Australia and Federal Circuit Court websites.
Thirdly, our YouTube Channel is also a valuable resource that has videos of our family lawyers explaining the divorce and separation process.
However, after reviewing these resources, you may want to know how the law applies to your specific relationship. In other words, there is not much point in knowing the law unless you know how it applies in your specific situation.
That is when our family lawyers Sydney can advise you as to how the law applies in your specific situation.
Family Law In Australia
There are multiple things that the Courts consider for both property and parenting matters.
Some of these factors are mentioned in the Family Law Act 1975. This act is readily accessible online for your reading.
Some of these factors are contained within judgments of previous cases that have already been established as a precedent.
Each of these factors will have different importance and weight in any particular case. Every relationship is different. There is no one solution for every case. That is why we must look at the case law to see how it applies to you. Experience and knowledge are key to providing effective family law advice.

Divorce Lawyers Sydney
When you engage a divorce lawyer, the first step you would want to take is to engage in family law mediation and negotiation.
Family law mediation will only be successful if you are thoroughly prepared. Firstly, you must understand both your best case scenario and what your case scenario is if you were to take the matter before a court. Without understanding what you should be aiming for, it is difficult to understand what is the best family law outcome for your matter during the mediation.
Secondly, before starting the mediation process, your Divorce Lawyers Sydney will explain all the costs and the time involved in preparing for a mediation.
As a result of the above two things happening prior to mediation, almost all of our matters settle at some stage during the mediation process, meaning that you are able to finalise your matter quickly and move on with your life.
We often notice that negotiations in family law matters can often be very emotionally charged with different interests or egos at play. Finally, we also notice that family law negotiations may occur in a formal or informal manner and as a result, there may be simple discussions at home, an exchange of letters, or a round table conference.
You need an experienced divorce lawyer who has successfully negotiated parenting and property agreements. Negotiation tactics are critical and are specific to each case and each personality.
Finally, our family lawyers will work with you to achieve a mutually beneficial solution for the separating couple. Above all, our family lawyers will also assist structure parenting arrangements that will be child focused.
If you need help with your negotiations, help with advice about your best or worst case scenario, help with writing a persuasive letter setting out your objectives, you should contact us today.

For those that are catching public transport, the court is walking distance from Central, Museum and Town Hall stations and it is also close to a number of bus routes on Elizabeth and Castlereagh Streets.
However, if you are traveling by car, there are two public car parks located close by in Goulburn Street and World Square.
Whilst the Federal Circuit Court does deal with other matters apart from family law, currently, approximately 90% of all matters in the court are family law matters.
