At KPW, our lawyers are ready to support you with any family matters that arise from our country locations in NSW and Victoria, through to city locations in Melbourne, Canberra and Sydney as required. Our lawyers are uniquely positioned to operate on both sides of the border, so you benefit from our extensive local and national knowledge.
What does family law cover?
Family Law in Australia covers an extensive range of matters and we’re able to support you directly with these through our in-house lawyers and legal support team. If we need to instruct experts from outside the legal field to support your matter, we utilise our vast local and national networks, so we get you all the help you need quickly and efficiently. When needed, we can also engage talented and experienced barristers who jump at the chance to work with our efficient and proactive lawyers.
How we help you navigate family matters
At KPW lawyers, we can provide legal advice about your rights, entitlements, and obligations surrounding Family Law. Family Law covers same-sex and different-sex relationships when there is a dispute surrounding parenting, property division or both.
We have an extraordinary track record of settling family law property matters through efficient and amicable negotiation and mediation. We aim to settle property divisions fairly and swiftly so that your assets are not wasted on unnecessary litigation costs. If litigation is necessary, we will fight hard to get you the best result possible.
If there are children involved in the dispute, parents and/or guardians of the children can use the Family Law system, whether they are married or not, to make arrangements for the care and access to those children.
Grandparents and other loved ones of the children, who want to maintain those relationships can also use the Family Law system.
We can assist you with whatever issue you are facing with the children in your lives.
Our lawyers will always be open and honest with you. You can be assured that all legal advice will be delivered with compassion and understanding as we help you navigate these often-challenging times.
