Family Law

Acorn Lawyers family law team provides confidential advice and guidance in all family law matters. We believe that it is highly important that wherever possible attempts are made to ensure that the complexity, costs and delay associated with litigation are avoided through negotiation and settlement. Effective communication between all parties involved is key to resolving family law matters. Australia's family law system helps people resolve the legal aspects following a relationship breakdown, including parenting matters and property matters. It encourages people to agree on arrangements without going to court, including the preparation of Consent Orders, Parenting Plans and Financial Agreements.

In certain circumstances however, family law matters must be taken to court in order to achieve an outcome. Our team can help you to assess your position and provide you with expert advice to represent your interests. All members of our family law team regularly appear in the Federal Circuit Court and Family Court of Australia.

Our family law team specialises in all family law matters, including:

  • Family Dispute Resolution
  • Parenting matters (including parental responsibility, residency, relocation, spend time, overseas travel, name change, recovery orders, paternity and name change)
  • Property disputes (including real property, superannuation, family trusts, shares and spousal maintenance)
  • Divorce
  • Surrogacy agreements
