Our Gold Coast Family Law Team

Fearless Champions of Family Law Matters

Our Gold Coast Family Law solicitors provide unwavering support throughout the entire legal process. We offer expert advice and guidance in a range of Family Law matters, including Separation and Divorce, Property and Financial Settlements, Child Arrangements and Parenting Plans, and Binding Financial Agreements.

A Binding Financial Agreement allows a couple to agree in advance on an acceptable division of assets. We can assist with a financial agreement or prenup. Binding Financial Agreements can reduce the stress of a separation and can provide clarity on practical issues that arise such as protecting existing assets or inheritances, ensure that children of previous relationships inherit what’s theirs, preserve family business or property for future generations and avoid disputes about financial matters at the end of a relationship. Our team can talk you through the entire process and guide you to a solution that protects your interests now and in the future.

Property and Financial Settlements encompass a wide range of agreements and are vitally important to ensure the end of the financial relationship between parties. Protect against future claims and ensure certainty in your future. Spousal maintenance, property division, income arrangements and superannuation are all considerations when it comes to Property and Financial Settlements. We’ve sailed countless families through choppy waters. For decades, we’ve deeply understood the profound impact of major life changes. You’ll receive care, empathy and active listening during this process.

The aftermath of a relationship breakdown can be filled with a whirlwind of emotions – frustration, anger, confusion, fear and profound hurt.

Family Law FAQs

Property division during a divorce or separation is governed by the Family Law Act 1975. If the parties have reached an agreement about dividing the property pool, you can document your agreement via Consent Orders or a Financial Agreement in accordance with the Family Law Act 1975. If you and your partner cannot reach an agreement about the property division, you can make an application to the Court for orders.

Consent Orders and Binding Financial Agreements are both ways of settling property and financial matters between parties in a family law dispute. Consent Orders are approved by the court and are more final, while BFAs are private agreements between parties that are not approved by the court and are more flexible. For Consent Orders, the parties must file an application with the court and provide full financial disclosure. The court will then consider the orders and, if they are satisfied that they are fair and reasonable, approve them. For BFAs, parties must obtain independent legal advice and sign the agreement in the presence of their legal practitioner.

By creating a parenting plan which sets out the arrangements for parenting and visitation. The plan should cover issues such as where the children will live, how much time they will spend with each parent, and how major decisions will be made. It’s important to make sure the plan is in the best interests of the children.
