We're here for you
We understand that going through a separation or divorce is one the most challenging and stressful times in your life. Having an experienced family lawyer on your side can make all the difference. Here at Simpson Western we listen to our clients, understand their needs and advise them on the best way to resolve their relationship property dispute as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Relationship property and matrimonial disputes
We can help you with every step of the separation process from giving initial advice on relationship property law, to drafting separation agreements, negotiating relationship property settlements, attending mediation and assisting with parenting arrangements and applying for your divorce.
Ideally relationship property disputes are resolved through negotiation or mediation but when that fails we have an experienced team of family and litigation lawyers that can pursue or defend matters in the Family Court or High Court. We have experience in a wide range of court applications including spousal maintenance, economic disparity, the sale of relationship property assets and urgent applications to prevent the disposal and removal of assets.
Being prepared and protected
To help avoid relationship property and matrimonial disputes happening in the first place, we offer expert advice on protecting yourself and your assets from a relationship property claim. We have significant experience preparing contracting out agreements or 'pre-nuptial agreements', which enable you to decide in advance how you want your assets divided in the event of separation or death.
Deceased estate disputes
If you need advice about the will or estate of a loved one, we can help. Our team is highly experienced at mediation, dispute resolution and ligation in these areas.
