Family Law

Our Family Law team are dedicated to getting better outcomes for our clients.

Our lawyers will take the time to help you understand the legal process and support you every step of the way. We understand that relationship breakdowns are challenging for everyone involved and our team are experienced in handling difficult and emotional negotiations.

We can help you with a range of family law matters including:

  • Divorce
  • Property settlements
  • Binding financial agreements
  • Parenting arrangements
  • Children’s matters
  • Mediation (including Family Dispute Resolution funded by Victoria Legal Aid)
  • Intervention Orders

We can also assist with Child Protection matters including:

  • Advice to families being investigated by the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS)
  • Representation of family members at court when the DHHS issue a protection application in the Children’s Court of Victoria
  • Internal and external review of DHHS case plans

We can provide family members and carers with a voice when DHHS child protection is involved with their children. We will fight hard to ensure that DHHS make decisions in the best interests of children.

In child protection cases, you may be asked to sign documents and make agreements. It is always best to obtain independent legal advice before agreeing to anything to ensure that you know your rights.

Our Family Law team is led by Peter Murphy, an accredited specialist in Family Law with over 30 years’ experience.
