Property Settlement

After sharing a life together, it can be difficult to decide how to divide property between you and your former spouse or de facto partner. Our Family Law team can help you protect your interests when it comes to dividing property.

Domestic Violence

It is important to know your legal rights by obtaining legal advice in relation to domestic violence and family law matters.


Mediation involves a trained mediator, acting as a neutral third party, who works with separating couples to help resolve their family law matter on an amicable basis.

Spousal Maintenance

Following the breakdown of a marriage or de facto relationship, questions often arise about spousal maintenance and the ongoing financial support for a party, particularly in circumstances where one party hasn’t worked for reasons including looking after the children, incapacity or age.

Child Custody

Our expert team of family lawyers are based on the Gold Coast and can assist you with every aspect of your child custody matters.

Prenuptial Agreements

When you enter into a new marriage or de facto relationship, you may not initially turn your mind to protecting your assets. However, it’s important for your future that you think about asset protection.


We approach our work with compassion and understanding – because divorce is more than just the legal termination of marriage. Our team of family lawyers will help you end your marriage and move forward with your life in a positive way.
