Family Law And De facto Law

The breakdown of a relationship can be a stressful time for all those involved. Emotions are raw and there are many issues to consider, such as property, financial support and if children are involved, who will the children spend time with.

If you are going through a separation or contemplating a divorce we will assist you through the negotiation process and wherever possible, consideration will  be given to alternate  dispute resolution (such as mediation), to try and reach common ground between the parties thereby avoiding the stress and cost of going to court.

However, if litigation becomes unavoidable AKL will guide and assist you  through the court  process in the most cost effective manner.
