Our Approach to Family Law

We have a structured approach to handling family law matters. We will respond to your initial telephone or email enquiry free of charge. If you wish to go to the next step, you can come to a first consultation with one of our senior lawyers who will provide you with preliminary advice.

The cost of the first consultation is $110 including GST. If you then choose to retain our services, we will map out a strategy to achieve the best possible outcome in your matter. The emphasis will be on what is realistic and most cost-effective in your particular situation. We achieve this through our many years of experience in negotiations and litigation.

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.

Etheringtons Solicitors’ Expertise in Family Law

Our family law solicitors have experience in the entire range of family law matters, from drafting prenuptial agreements to advocating your rights in the Family Court following separation.

We can assist you with the following:

Family Law Solutions

Property settlements and parenting arrangements can be formalised either amicably or by seeking orders from the Court.

Out-of-Court Options
  • We can draft Consent Orders, which formalise agreements between you and your ex-spouse.
  • If you wish to formally regulate your financial relationship with your partner, we can draft Binding Financial Agreements. This can be prior, during or after a marriage.
  • Where children are involved, we can draft a Parenting Plan. While it can’t be legally enforced in Court, a Parenting Plan can be taken into account by the Court if one party fails to comply.
Court Proceedings

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 for interim hearings, interlocutory matters, conciliation conferences and final hearings.
