Family law proceedings in Australia are conducted in the Family Court of Australia and the Federal Circuit Court of Australia (except in W.A., where they have their own Family Court). The main legislation is the Family law Act 1975, which addresses parenting of children when there is a dispute, and also property matters arising from separation or divorce.
Kirkeby & Co. can assist you with any aspect of family law, including advice about parenting disputes and relationship property. A solicitor from Kirkeby & Co can also represent you in court if that becomes necessary.
Proceedings in the family law courts can take many months or even years. Getting advice as early as possible can save a lot of time and distress later on, and may assist you to reach agreements that avoid court proceedings.
Another area of family law we deal with is Hague Convention (international kidnapping) cases.
If you are separating or have any legal concerns about parenting, legal arrangements for child care, or family property, call us. There is no charge for an initial telephone discussion about your matter.
