divorce lawyers brisbane are your divorce and family law experts

What We Do

We work with you to achieve the best possible outcome.
Separation & Divorce

We understand that the process of obtaining a divorce can be a traumatic event in your life. We are able to help our clients through this difficult time by handling this process with compassion and efficiency. You can rest assured that we are on your side.

Property Settlements

Negotiating a divorce settlement following a separation can be a difficult process for married and de facto couples alike. When deciding on the property settlement, there are a number of factors to be considered including the length of the relationship, the financial contributions made by both parties, non- financial contributions, the parties’ individual incomes and potential to earn an income.

Parenting Arrangements

We assist our clients to finalise the living arrangements for their children, focusing always on the best interests of the children. We recognise the importance of children maintaining a relationship with both parents after a separation occurs, and we have the expertise to assist parents in reaching agreement about the parenting arrangements for their children.

We offer a free, 10-minute phone consultation.
