Family law is a highly specialised field of legal practice most commonly dealing with divorce, separation and child custody cases.
A skilled specialist family lawyer is also equipped to handle financial agreements, adoption, domestic violence, property settlements and more.
Your lawyer should not only represent you with the utmost professionalism but also be a confidant and supporter during an emotionally stressful process.
If you want the highest calibre family lawyer in your corner, there are a few things to look for:
Specialised While it can be tempting to ask a solicitor friend for help, it’s essential to seek out a specialist family lawyer with experience in matters like yours. Ask for recent examples and outcomes in similar situations, of course understanding the need for client confidentiality.
Accredited It is essential you are represented by a family lawyer accredited by the Law Society of Western Australia. The processes, frameworks and precedents in Western Australia differ to other states in subtle, but important, ways.
Reputable We live in a small city; word of mouth should be considered in your search for a Perth family law firm. If you are not comfortable asking friends for advice on personal issues, online reviews and client testimonials can be a good way to establish a firm’s reputation.
Personable Family lawyers deal with sensitive and emotionally laden situations. It is important you trust your lawyer to have your best interests in mind while remaining professional and agreeable during negotiations that will affect your future.
