What is Family Law?

The term includes a range of issues relating to relationships, parenting issues and financial matters. The major areas are:

  • Marriage and Divorce
  • Property Settlements
  • Parenting Issues
  • Child Support
  • Financial Agreements – before, during and after
  • Marriage or De Facto Relationship
  • Spouse Maintenance
  • De Facto and Same Sex Relationships

Our goal is to get you the best result without having to go to court. Parties can reach an agreement themselves, and just ask us to formalise the arrangements. Mediation using the help of a trained mediator can be an effective way of reaching an agreement, and since the Family Law Firms usually require parties to try mediation before using the family court in Parramatta, it makes sense to try mediation sooner rather than later. Barwick Boitano can help arrange mediation, prepare you for it and then formalise any agreement reached.

Family lawyers in Sydney spend much of their time negotiating to achieve outcomes, and we are skilled in this. We pride ourselves on our ability to settle matters, but if all else fails, the court becomes the only option. Whether it is negotiating or litigating, we will be there for you, using our expertise and experience to obtain the best result for you. 

Having a Family Law Expert working for you and with you makes sense.

Even if a matter does proceed to court, most matters are resolved before they get to a final hearing – our efforts to settle don’t stop just because you are in the court system. If your matter does proceed to final hearing, we will dedicate our skills and experience to getting the right result for you.
