Family Law

Family and Relationship Law

Arguments are rarely fair, so we prefer settlements.

The breakdown of a relationship or marriage can be stressful and traumatic. Our family law team can help.

  • We’ll give you advice about your rights, obligations and entitlements.
  • We can also advise you about the different options available to settle any matters where you and your partner disagree.
  • We offer fixed fee** arrangements which give you greater certainty in terms of cost. 

 

Case Study #1


Jim separated from his wife Amy about a year ago. They have 2 kids together. Amy had some trouble accepting the separation and unfortunately prevented Jim from seeing the kids. Jim didn’t want custody of the kids – he just wanted to see them regularly and remain involved in the day to day routine and activities. Jim tried mediation but Amy wouldn’t budge.

We assisted Jim by commencing a court case in the family law courts seeking orders for Jim to see his children regularly. Jim now sees his two children every second weekend from Friday after school and drops the kids to school on Monday morning. Jim also has dinner with the kids on Wednesdays and looks after the youngest child on his RDOs. 

 

Case Study #2


We helped Jenny formalise the agreement she had reached with her ex-partner Abdul regarding care arrangements for their three kids. The parties had been separated for 6 months and had a 50/50 week about arrangement in place for their two kids, Jasmine aged 10 and Oscar aged 8.

Jenny and Abdul lived close to each other, got along well and had flexible working arrangements. The agreement was formalised by way of consent order.

Estate Planning

Wills and Estate Planning

You can’t plan for everything but you can plan for the important things.

Estate Planning is not just about having a Will. It involves the review, management and control of your personal, family and business affairs while you are alive and when you pass away.

Our dedicated Will, Probate and Estate Litigation lawyers have a thorough knowledge of this potentially complex area. We can advise you on:

  • Completing and updating a Will
  • Preparing powers of attorney and enduring powers of guardianship
  • Administration of a deceased estate, including superannuation and death benefits and Will disputes.
Wills

Will Disputes

If you’re challenging a Will, we will stand with you.

When somebody becomes incapable of managing their own affairs, important legal steps must be taken to reduce the possibility of estate disputes by ensuring that their care, welfare and administration of their financial and legal affairs are managed in their best interests.

In our experience, most Will disputes can be settled at or before mediation, minimising the costs and strain on family relationships. 

Our lawyers appreciate the importance of maintaining family relationships and will attempt to resolve the dispute without the need to issue formal legal proceedings.

Criminal Law

We’ll help you know where you stand.

Being charged with an offence or finding out that you’re under investigation can be an intimidating prospect for many. Our criminal lawyers have a detailed knowledge of the law, current sentencing trends and useful referral support services. We have many years’ experience in a wide range of issues including:

  • Arrests
  • Driving offences
  • Theft and fraud
  • Sexual and other assaults
Conveyancing

Property Law

Our experienced team of property lawyers will work with you to get the job done quickly and efficiently.

Any type of commercial property: industrial, warehouse, office and warehouse, office, retail shop, vacant land, Strata title and ‘off-the-plan’ requires expert legal assistance.

At Slater and Gordon, we offer you:

  • A comprehensive review of your purchase contract to ensure that it reflects the deal you’ve agreed with the sales agent and/or property developer.
  • We’ll also check that the contract includes any specific clauses you require to protect your position.
