Stacks Collins Thompson has a well-deserved reputation for offering dependable legal advice in family law. We know that family matters are often difficult to talk about and even harder to ask for help with. However, our role is to ensure that your family's interests are protected and that you have an advocate on your side.
Where a family lawyer can help
Typically, a family lawyer will conjure up scenes of adversarial Hollywood actors attempting to prove infidelity. Fortunately, this is quite removed from the reality of family law and many legal issues often revolve around creating a sensible arrangement that handles the impact of matters such as divorce or separation.
Many family law matters are quite informal and allow the parties involved to have an opportunity to each put their side of the story. However, some family law matters can involve a technical side of the law concerning how the court frames the specifics of orders or property divisions. Our solicitors can advise you on the mechanics of quickly settling the consequences of a divorce and helping you concentrate on supporting your family. In addition, we can advise you on the specifics of obtaining a divorce and appear with you during any court proceedings.
Stacks Collins Thompson also has experience assisting in more urgent family law matters. We can assist victims of domestic or family violence in applying for apprehended violence orders (AVOs). In addition, our solicitors can also assist in practical matters such as suggesting safe locations or putting you in touch with support groups.
In addition, you may be looking to get assistance with new beginnings. If you are considering adopting, good legal advice is essential to avoiding some administrative pitfalls. In addition, we can also offer legal advice to couples who are considering marriage and may wish to sign binding financial agreements (also known as pre-nuptial agreements).
