February 27, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 162

Family law is a very diverse section of law and covers a variety of different types of transactions, many during a stressful period in someone's life and therefore having a great lawyer to assist you through the process is essential. Lawyers follow very strict guidelines when dealing with all their clients and you can rest assured they will always have your best interests at heart. Some of the things that a family lawyer can assist you with are:

Relationship Property

Often referred to as a pre-nup, a relationship property agreement can actually be for any kind of relationship such as marriage, civil union or defacto, entered into where the parties want to clearly outline the ownership and distribution of property should the relationship come to an end. As the laws pertaining to relationship property are quite complex, setting it all out at the beginning of the relationship ensures that each party agrees when the relationship is in a good position, rather than afterward when it may be broken down and possibly acrimonious.

Adoption and Guardianship

Adoption is a wonderful occasion and family law is essential to ensuring a smooth process to ensure you can concentrate on welcoming your new family member. Guardianship is often a good option for blended families where a step parent is involved in the day-to-day parenting as it does not legally replace the existing parent.

Divorce/Dissolution of Marriage

Often a very stressful time, a dissolution of marriage can be applied for after a separation of two years. An application can be made singly or if the circumstances suit a joint application can be made. A family lawyer can assist with the application and offer advice about the process.


Often when a marriage breaks down the child/ren custody becomes a very important part of the process. Family law can assist with setting out the agreement between the parents to ensure that the interests of the child/ren are taken care of. They will represent you should the matter be required to go to court for hearing if an agreement not be reached.

Other things that a family lawyer can assist with are Family Trusts, Child Support, Estate Claims, Mediation and many other issues relating to personal and family matters. In all cases you will treated with the utmost respect and understanding and should have all things explained to you in a way that you understand. Do not be afraid to ask as many questions of you need to, your lawyer is there to help you through the process.
