Family Law

1975 saw a fundamental change in laws affecting family relationships, with the introduction of a “no fault” concept to the breakdown of marriages.  Since then, our society’s views about family and other intimate relationships continue to change rapidly.  Naturally, laws have also changed to accommodate new social conventions.


Family Law includes:

Relationship & Caring Agreements
Prenuptial and Separation Agreements
Children – who they live with and arrangements for their financial support
Property division
Family Violence Intervention Orders
