Our ethos is to “do no harm”, acknowledging that after your matter is resolved with our firm, your relationships with your former partner and your extended families will continue

At Reid Family Lawyers, we consistently help people with family law issues involving

Separation and Divorce

One in three marriages ends in divorce; this figure does not contain de facto couples, who are six times more likely to separate. The fact of the matter is that relationships break down every day, and our goal at Reid Family Lawyers is to provide timely and cost-efficient solutions to settle separation and divorce matters. We work with you to form a practical plan and to walk you through the process from start to finish.

Parenting Issues

At the end of the day, we believe that children come first. Therefore, there are a variety of factors to take into account when determining what is in a child’s best interest. Arrangements made for any child must be in their best interests, and our team will assist you in finding a clear and rational path moving forward.

Spousal Support

Following a separation, Orders for spousal maintenance might be made to provide financial support to the financially weaker party in a relationship if they’re not able to support themselves.  The other party must however have the financial capacity to provide the support as a condition of any Order.

Property Settlements

One implication of separation is that in many instances, the overall assets from a relationship need to be split between affected parties fairly. Reid Family Lawyers helps you navigate this process one step at a time to obtain the best possible outcome for your family.
