Family Lawyer


We understand that making the decision to divorce your spouse is difficult for you and your family, even if the separation is amicable, which is why we take the stress out of the legal processes involved in a divorce. Although Australian laws have changed and made it simpler to obtain a divorce, there can be a number of facts that can complicate the divorce process. We can guide you through the divorce process and provide you with advice in relation to any complex matters that might arise.

Parenting and Child Matters

After the breakdown of a relationship, where children are involved, it is important to have an arrangement in place for children concerning their living arrangements, education and health. Putting such arrangements in place early on in the breakdown of a relationship will minimise the risk of further issues emerging down the track. Parents are able to agree on a parenting plan or parenting orders or reach agreement through family dispute resolution which avoids the need for a court determination. If you have children and are contemplating separation or have separated from your partner, click here to find out more in relation to arrangements for your children post-separation with Dettmann Phair Lawyers.

Property and Financial Matters

The division of finances, property, superannuation and debts is another important consideration.  By identifying the net asset pool, examining each parties’ contributions and each parties’ future needs, a fair and equitable division of assets can be ascertained. These financial matters can be resolved in or out of court and at Dettmann Phair Lawyers, we provide you with comprehensive advice and representation to ensure that you receive the best possible outcome.
