Family Law

Have you recently separated or thinking about separating and require legal advice on property and childrenís living arrangements?

Family breakdown is traumatic and emotional and can result in a number of legal issues for both parties. We at Carlin Lawyers understand how important it is to have an experienced family lawyer in whom you feel confident and able to place your trust.

Even in amicable separations, it is important to see a solicitor to ensure you are aware of your rights. We will facilitate the fair distribution of assets and assist in the decisions necessary as to whom your children will live with and will spend time with.

Carlin Lawyers have extensive experience and success in negotiating agreements that reduce the hostility and minimize the legal costs involved.

By getting the right legal advice you are also more likely to effect a final distribution of assets so that neither side can attempt to make a further claim at a later time. We explain to you the stages involved and explain the steps that you can take to protect your interests.

In many cases a matrimonial property dispute can be handled on a deferred payment basis so that you are not required to pay legal fees until a settlement agreement has been finalized.

Carlin Lawyers welcomes matters of Legal Aid. We understand some individuals may be facing financial problems with obtaining legal advice and representation. You may be eligible for Legal Aid funding provided by the Legal Services Commission of South Australia.

Legal Aid is provided for family matters concerning children and depends entirely on your personal financial circumstances. The staff at Carlin Lawyers can assist you in completing an Application for Legal Aid.
