Family and relationship issues

 

The increasing complexity of family units arising from separation or divorce, second marriages or relationships and “blended families”, and also perhaps a more litigious mindset in the community has resulted in an increase in the number of clients seeking our advice and assistance with family disputes.  

We endeavour to assist our clients to avoid family disputes in advance. In the couse of handling other transactions we may suggest steps which could be taken to minimise  the risk of future conflict. These steps could include appropriate structuring of property transactions, Wills, relationship property agreements or establishment of a family trust.

We represent clients in negotiating and drafting relationship property or other family agreements. We also represent clients in the event of disputes arising concerning relationship property or estates.
