Family lawyers are the highest in-demand solicitors available in the legal world. They handle a wide variety of different issues, especially when it comes to family-related disputes. Family lawyers provide a comprehensive range of services, including advice and representation in relation to divorces, family-related disputes, property settlement, asset distribution, child custody, and much more.
Family conflicts can be very distressing for everyone. Therefore, it is crucial to have a mediator in between to help give legal advice while simultaneously providing solutions and fair outcomes for both parties involved. While family lawyers represent people in court, they most commonly use mediation as the first point of settlement to find a final outcome rather than going to court.

Divorce related issues
Divorce can be a highly emotional time. It is the dissolution of a relationship between two parties who were previously married to each other. As a result, disputes can arise surrounding property settlement, asset distribution, child custody, etc. It is not easy for both parties to think clearly in these times, and family lawyers help not only control the situation but also help settle any issues from a legal standpoint.
These issues can be exhausting to resolve when both parties cannot agree on anything. Therefore, our family lawyer can help mediate and provide legal suggestions.
Most married or de facto couples acquire assets (like real estate and motor vehicles) and liabilities during their relationship. A family lawyer will outline the legal processes around dividing property and the rules and regulations.
Before you start negotiating a resolution, your family lawyer will advise you on what is considered property of the relationship, including property that you have held in your name before entering into the relationship or property you have acquired since separation.
When separating your property from your ex-partner or spouse, it is necessary to try to facilitate a settlement; either through an informal arrangement, family dispute resolution, arbitration or obtaining a court orders property settlement.
Child custody agreements
Child custody is often one of the biggest reasons disputes occur. Both parties will be in disagreement over whether they should have sole or joint custody of the children after the divorce, causing tension in an already emotionally charged situation.
