When a marriage comes to an end, you may find yourself feeling overwhelmed and emotional. You may also feel uneasy about taking the step of seeing a Divorce Lawyer and obtaining legal advice.  At Matthews Folbigg Lawyers our team of Divorce Lawyers are highly skilled and experienced in all aspects of Family Law including but not limited to:

  • Negotiation of property settlements;
  • Negotiations of parenting arrangements and child custody;
  • Representation of clients in court proceedings conducted in the Federal Circuit and Family Court;
  • Divorce proceedings;
  • Financial agreements and Child Support Agreements.

You need to have peace of mind that the Divorce Lawyer you choose is one that you can rely on and trust to deal with your matter to the best of their ability.

At Matthews Folbigg Lawyers, you can rest assured that your Divorce Lawyer will not see you as just another client. We take every client’s matter seriously and give every client the commitment and dedication that they deserve and tailor our advice to suit your matter and ensure that you understand the advice given to you by your Divorce Lawyer.  We will advise you of the progress and discuss options with you at every step of the way.

Whilst your Divorce Lawyer will endeavour to settle your matter out of Court, there may be times when Court cannot be avoided. This may be due to the approach taken by your spouse or their Divorce Lawyer. If we assess that the approach of your spouse or their Divorce Lawyer towards negotiations is not allowing the matter to progress, then keeping your costs in mind, we will discuss with you the need to commence Court proceedings. Your Divorce Lawyer will advise you when it will be appropriate to commence Court proceedings.

When Court proceedings are commenced, your Divorce Lawyer will keep you advised of the following:

  • What may occur at each listing of your matter;
  • Appropriateness to enter into settlement discussions;
  • Your obligations in relation to any orders that are made by the Court;
  • Address any other questions you may want to ask your Divorce Lawyer throughout the process.
