Divorce & Family Law

Protect your family in good times and challenging times

Choosing a family law solicitor means finding someone that you can place absolute trust in. That’s why SA Law has worked hard to create a highly respected family law team in the region, as recognised by independent researcher The Legal 500.

From advising on situations to resolving disputes, our family law specialists provide you with clear guidance delivered with sensitivity and understanding. We help clients who are facing the difficulties of relationship breakdown, whether a marriage, civil partnership or cohabitation. In particular, we offer extensive expertise in divorce, resolving complex and high-value financial matters, and complex situations involving children, such as international relocation.

Furthermore, our family law team benefits from having qualified mediators and members of ResolutionCollaborative Law and The Law Society Children Panel

HOW WE HELP YOU

  • Not sure where to begin? We can help you to identify the practical issues and the priority in which to address them.
  • We make difficult situations as smooth and amicable as possible, and keep your time involvement to a minimum.
  • If a dispute can’t be resolved through mutual agreement, we steer you carefully towards the best way of achieving a successful outcome.
  • In situations that involve children, we provide objective advice that puts their welfare first.

IT’S GOOD TO BEAR IN MIND

  • The fastest and easiest way to resolve a dispute is through mutual agreement.
  • It helps to see a dispute from the other person’s perspective, even if you don’t agree with it.
  • Litigation and court proceedings are costly and can have uncertain outcomes.
  • Thinking about the future can help you to achieve the best outcome now.
