Family Law

The break down of a marriage or defacto relationship can be very traumatic.

At New Way Lawyers we can help you through this difficult and stressful time. We have a professional and caring team of family lawyers who will listen to what you have to say and respond by providing expert information, advice and representation. We will work with you to find the best possible outcome to ensure that your needs are met and your interests are protected.

We will focus on achieving the best possible outcome for you through an out of court settlement, as we are conscious of the strain and expense associated with lengthy court battles. We understand though, that out of court settlements are not always possible or appropriate and if court proceedings have already been commenced, or need to be commenced, we have the expertise and experience to represent and advocate for you throughout the process. In fact, our family lawyers have significant experience in some of the most complex court proceedings such as parenting proceedings involving allegations of abuse of the children, parenting proceedings involving other family members such as grandparents, parenting proceedings where children have been removed from Australia, property proceedings involving third party family members and property proceedings involving a deceased spouse.

We specialise in the following types of family law matters:

  • separation and divorce
  • parenting arrangements (custody, relocation, residence and visitation)
  • breaches and contraventions of parenting arrangements
  • child support arrangements
  • property settlement
  • spousal support
  • breaches and contraventions of property and spousal support arrangements
  • adoption
