Family Law – The Big Questions

vintage-family-photos-7

 

This is the FAMILY LAW section of The Legal Eagle

I imagine you’re here because you’re a little anxious about something to do with your relationship or your marriage, and you want some easy to understand information about what direction you should head in, and your rights under the law in Australia.

Take a look at the questions below and see if they apply to you. Each question has a link to answers and resources that may help you. By the way, whenever I have to mention a ‘legal’ term that sounds like it comes from another planet, I promise it will be explained to you in plain English.

If your question isn’t here just drop me a brief note c/o Facebook Messenger
Please be assured that only our lawyer will see your enquiry.
If you have lots of questions and you would like to spend some quality time on the phone with our senior family lawyer Mark Bradbury,  we offer a low cost service for this which you can book an appointment for HERE
