Melbourne Family Lawyers is an Australian Family Law Specialist Firm based in Melbourne which deals exclusively in Australian and International Family Law cases. The firm was originally founded in Collins Street Melbourne in 1985. Our Specialist Family Law Lawyers are accredited by the Law Institute of Victoria. We have the knowledge and the expertise to help resolve any Family Law problem quickly.
We specialise in family law property settlement, resolving financial disputes and parenting disputes regarding the arrangements for children. We settle our clients' disputes using Mediation and a Collaborative Lawyer approach if possible. If it is not possible, then we ensure that our client’s case is dealt with promptly through the Family Law Courts to achieve the best possible pragmatic outcome.
All of our Family Law Specialists are Accredited by the Law Institute of Victoria and such accreditation is recognised throughout all Australia. Only the best family lawyers in their field of expertise become Law Institute of Victoria Accredited Specialists.
Our lawyers have vast experience having successfully conducted court cases in the Federal Magistrates’ Court, Federal Circuit Court of Australia, Family Court of Australia, State Supreme Courts and the High Court of Australia. Whether your case involves a 50 million dollar business or a suburban house, rest assured that we know how to deal with it in the best possible way and obtain the best possible result for you.
With our experienced advice, guidance and representation, many of our clients are able to achieve timely property settlements through a Mediation process, thus avoiding the expense, delay and stress of Family Law Court Proceedings. However, some cases cannot be settled (e.g. where there is a spouse who refuses to negotiate on reasonable terms) and it becomes necessary to initiate court proceedings in order to promote our client’s best interests. You will have the benefit of the firm’s sound knowledge and experience in knowing when it is best to litigate in Court and knowing when it is best to settle out of Court.
Cases involving children need to handled in a sensitive way but they can also sometimes require quick action to avoid long-term emotional damage to children. We have the experience, the knowledge and the resources to advise of the best way to protect the interests of our clients and their children. Should the need arise, we will recommend the best Counsellors and Psychologists to assist in achieving a sensible outcome.
