Birketts’ Family Law Team appreciates that the breakdown of a marriage or relationship can be one of the most traumatic events in a person’s life. Our family lawyers are members of Resolution and include accredited specialists, mediators, collaborative practitioners and Family Law Arbitrators who can provide family law advice and support which best suits a client’s particular needs and helps them reach their goals.
We do not only advise clients when their relationships are in trouble. We also specialise in Relationship Agreements which help clients to plan the financial side of their marriage or cohabitation. Prenuptial Agreements are now very common. Our team of family lawyers can advise on all types of relationship agreements.
Some clients visiting us for the first time about their relationship difficulties may have a good idea of the outcome they would like to achieve. Others have no idea what to expect at all. Part of our job is to provide clear family law advice about the various legal processes which are available – mediation, collaboration, constructive negotiation and court proceedings. It is important to understand these different approaches so you are able to make an informed choice and the right one for you.
All members of the Family Law Team offer an initial, without obligation, telephone call so that clients can discuss the options available to them and can reassure themselves that they can form a good working relationship with their chosen lawyer.
