What is Family Law?

Family Law is the area of law that deals with family matters such as property, children, divorce, financial agreements and so on.

Will my matter go to court?

The majority of relationship breakdowns do not end up in court and of the small amount that do, even fewer go to a final hearing. Alternatives to court are mediation, conciliation and counselling. Couples are at all stages encouraged to settle matters amicably and fairly so as to avoid undue emotional and financial hardship.

What if my former partner is violent?

If your former partner acts violently towards yourself, your children, your extended family or friends you need to act immediately. You must contact the police and apply to the court for a Family Violence Intervention Order. Your Solicitor can assist you with the application.
