Family Law

We are well experienced in the complexities of family law and understand the stress and upset changes can bring about.

We can help you every step of the way ensuring a fair process and clear guidance on how you can deal with delicate changes such as divorce, separation agreements, contracting out, removing de-facto agreements and much more.  

The process of “undoing” the family whether it be a Separation Agreement, Parenting Orders, Protection Orders, Property Agreements or dissolution of relationships they are all referred to in the generic term of Family Law and the team at Kelly Flavell Law have the skill and expertise to guide you through the many traps and pitfalls of life.

 

Any relationship where people live together becomes subject to the application of the laws relating to the fair and appropriate division of assets acquired by the parties during the period that they lived together whether they are married, in a civil union or a de facto relationship. Once you have lived together for a period of 3 years all property acquired by either party is devisable on a 50/50 basis unless the parties have prior to that date entered into a “Contracting Out Agreement” in writing witnessed by independent lawyers. The “Contracting Out Agreement” records the alternative wishes for handling the parties assets in the event of either a relationship split or a death.

The team at Kelly Flavell Law are well versed in preparation of documentation recording the wishes and desires in terms of:

  • Contracting out agreements (also known as pre-nuptial agreements)
  • Contracting in agreements
  • De facto agreements
  • Matrimonial property agreements.

The preparation of agreements recording and reflecting the emotional impact of family change is not without its difficulties and the team at Kelly Flavell Law are both empathetic and fair minded, giving balance and clear guidance to what can or cannot be done in the various circumstances with which client’s are confronted with in relation to Family Law.

The friendly team at Kelly Flavell Law can help you to plan for your future.
