Will I have to go to Court if I come and see you?

Absolutely not. As much as possible, we help our clients resolve their family law problem without going near a Court. Court is only one option. When you come to see us, we will give you a range of options for resolving your family law issue and we will help you weigh up the pros and cons of each option so you can make an informed decision about how to move forward. To find out more click here.

Can you just sit down with my ex and I and help us sort things out?

The trained Mediators at Family Law Results can do just that - sit down with you both and guide you through a process that aims to help you resolve the issues you are facing. To find out more about Mediation, click here. 
We also have lawyers trained in Collaborative Law. Using Collaborative Law, you will still each need your own lawyers (who are trained in Collaborative Law) but together, we will all sit down to discuss the issues and to help you resolve them in a respectful, future focussed manner. No court. No nasty lawyer's letters. To find out more about Collaborative Practice, click here.  

Do you only help people who have separated?

No. An increasing number of our clients are single people or married or de facto couples who need assistance to plan their property affairs or who need Court orders about a child they are caring for or are adopting. We have particular expertise in advising couples who are in second marriages/relationships. To find out more about the people we have helped, click here.
