In society today, almost everyone has a friend, workmate or relative who has been or is going through a separation or divorce. Unfortunately, this often leads to misconceptions about rights, entitlements and likely outcomes.
At Quinn & Scattini we have an experienced Family Law team, led by an Accredited Family Law Specialist, and this experience is available at any of our eight offices to help you.
What is Family Law? The term includes a range of issues relating to relationships, parenting issues and financial matters. The major areas are:-
- De facto and same sex relationships
- Marriage and divorce
- Property settlements
- Parenting issues
- Child support
- Financial agreements, before, during and after a Marriage or de facto relationship
- Spouse maintenance
Our goal is to get you an acceptable result without having to go to court. Parties can reach an agreement themselves, and just ask us to formalize the arrangements.
Mediation using the help of a trained mediator can be an effective way of reaching agreement, and since the Family Law Courts usually require parties to try mediation before using the courts, it makes sense to try mediation sooner rather than later.
Family lawyers spend much of their time negotiating to achieve outcomes, and our team is skilled in this. We pride ourselves on our ability to settle matters, but if all else fails, court becomes the only option.
If the court is used, most matters are resolved before they get to a final hearing - our efforts to settle don't stop just because you are in the court system. If you are unlucky enough to need a court decision, we will dedicate our skills and experience to getting the right result for you.
We offer you accessible help. You can see one of our Family Law team at any of our eight offices. For many people, funding a law case is a real problem, and we may be able to assist you. We are happy to discuss payment options with you that are suited to your situation.
If you come to us for help, you will be talking to a lawyer to whom you are not just a file number, but a real person, and a person going through a difficult and stressful episode in their life. We will give you expert advice, and not just tell you what you want to hear. Our lawyers will talk to you in a language you can understand, not just in legal jargon.
