Family Law and Services

Family Law and Services

solicitors can assist in the entire range of family law matters, from drafting pre-nuptial agreements and/or binding financial agreements, to advocating your rights in the Family Court. Our solicitors are experienced in parenting matters (including families with children with special needs and child relocation), division of assets and liabilities after separation, and divorce applications.

We have expertise in and can conduct matters ‘collaboratively’,’ which means that we aim to resolve your matters without the need to end up in Court. We find this approach can save our clients time, money and stress, and we can prepare the legal documents if you and your ex-spouse reach an agreement after separation.

Sometimes proceeding to Court is necessary. We can represent you in matters at the Federal Circuit Court of Australia as well as more complicated matters in the Family Court and at either the Sydney or Parramatta Registries for interim hearings, interlocutory matters, conciliation conferences and final hearings.

Read What People Say About Etheringtons

“I came to Etheringtons with a draft settlement document prepared by my estranged wife’s lawyer. During a difficult time and what can be a very difficult process, Etheringtons advised and represented me in executing a completely new document with more protection and certainty provided for the future and in completion of my divorce and child support agreement. Their advice was sound, timely and forthcoming, the technical knowledge complete, delivery exact and the understanding of my requirements much appreciated. Throughout my divorce and settlement, I felt fully informed of the relevant law and practice and of my entitlements. Indeed I felt in control for the first time since the proceedings began. I have since used Etheringtons for property advice and fully intend to use them into the future.”


“I found that under these very stressful times, Etheringtons Solicitors have not only showed great proficiency and efficiency in preparing for the case, but also EMPATHY which I greatly needed in these tormenting circumstances. I therefore have absolutely no hesitation in recommending their services and will certainly employ their services in the future.”
