Family Law

Did you know that over 50% of all relationships break down? Unfortunately, most of these relationships involve children.

It’s important that you know your rights and how the law operates when it comes to making arrangements for where your children will live and how often they will spend time with the other parent.

Almost everyone knows someone who has been through a family law matter and these people will all want to give you advice. Be careful of this. The Family Law Act is continually changing.

As surprising as it may be, usually, your neighbour, your mate at the pub and your mother’s friend’s brother are not necessarily correct in their legal advice.

Just as no two people are the same, no two families are the same! Whilst family and friends mean well, it’s smarter to get the right advice about your rights and entitlements from the right people.

We understand your situation is unique, and we’ll respond appropriately, listening to you and working with you to achieve your best possible outcome.

We can tell you everything you need to know about:

  • Divorce;

  • Parenting and Care Arrangements, (formally known as Contact and Residence or Custody and Access);

  • Property Settlements;

  • The Court Process in the Federal Circuit Court of Australia and the Family Court of Australia;

  • Child Support;

  • Spousal Maintenance;

  • Apprehended Violence Orders (AVO’s);

  • Domestic Violence; and

  • DNA Testing.

With Perdriau Family Lawyers, you’ll get an honest assessment of your case and advice about your likely outcome.

Your mind will be at ease once you get the right advice.

 

Always forgive your enemies, nothing annoys them so much
