Why is it important to go to a specialist law firm?There are plenty of law firms across Adelaide that address the same issues we do. However, there’s a big difference in the quality of work between a generalist law firm and specialist family law lawyers Adelaide. Here’s why: Case analysis: Generalists typically take a textbook approach to their work. This means that they can’t really provide you with advice off the top of their head, because their experience doesn’t qualify their proficiency. Our team of specialists have dealt with hundreds of family law cases. We can confidently analyse your situation and provide a tailored solution to help you reach your objectives. Recognized leadership: Our directors have been practicing family law for years. They’ve become well recognized leaders in the field and have affiliations with AIFLAM—The national body for family law arbitrators and mediators. Don’t sacrifice depth for breadth, stick with the experts you can trust and chat with our team of family law lawyers.

What about the children?Our family law lawyers will tell you everything you need to know when it comes to divorce. Australia has a ‘no-fault’ divorce system which means that you can apply for divorce after only a single year of separation. While some divorces can be straightforward, there’s always that little bit more pressure when kids are involved. You just want to do the right thing by them, which sometimes means making appropriate co-parenting arrangements. This isn’t necessarily splitting the time they spend with each parent 50/50. You have to consider their schooling, social lives, preferences and general well being. The drastic life changes can have a huge impact on children, so it’s important to maintain consistency from the get go. We also recommend that you:
- Never use your kids as messengers to communicate with your ex-partner
- Take the time to listen to them
- Put anger and emotions aside when deciding terms.
