Family law disputes can relate to parenting matters, property interests or a combination of both. Leeds Lawyers have built a reputation on achieving exceptional outcomes for our family law clients in a range of matters such as:

  • All parenting matters
  • Apprehended Domestic Violence Orders
  • Consent orders
  • Binding financial agreements
  • Disputed martial property matters
  • Urgent parenting applications
  • Airport watch list applications
  • Contravention hearings
  • Spousal maintenance applications
  • Child support matters
  • De facto or same sex relationship issues
  • Divorce applications

Every case is unique, and it is important to receive independent legal advice before making any decisions which may affect you or your children’s future. During our initial consultation, we listen carefully to ensure that we grasp the nature of the dispute and explain the benefits and detriments of the available options.

We can help you answer a number of pressing concerns such as:

  • What is my entitlement in our matrimonial property?
  • What are my rights as a parent?
  • What parenting arrangements are in the best interests of the children?
  • Do I need to go to court and how does the process work?
  • How long is the process and how much will it cost?

Negotiation and Mediation
Our advice is always focused on resolving a dispute through negotiation which is the quickest and most costs effective manner for our clients. This can be done through mediation or even by correspondence.

Negotiation is a valuable tool in reaching a settlement because it leads to an outcome that both parties have participated in and compromised on. During the process they can address their fears, concerns and reasoning for their position.

Once an agreement is reached is can be reflected in a number of ways including:

  1. Consent Orders – A legally binding documents addressing parenting and or property agreements which drafted and filed with the Court.
  2. Parenting Plans – an agreement which is signed by the parties and reflects an agreement for the parenting arrangements of the children.
  3. Binding Financial Agreements – A legally binding document which is reflects the parties property agreement and is signed and witnessed by the individuals and their respective lawyers.

When negotiations are unfruitful or there is an immediate need to protect your property or parenting interests, ligation may be required, which involves commencing court proceedings. We have a proven track record in tenaciously fighting for our client’s rights to secure orders in their interest, whether it be in a simple or complex matter. Our principal solicitor Mark Kryakos regularly appears in both the Federal Circuit Court and Family Court of Australia.
