Family Lawyers with legal precision and personal warmth
The breakdown of a family relationship usually brings a mix of unpleasant emotions—despair, anger, confusion and disappointment. Legal issues and change are mixed in among these emotions, and tough decisions must be made.
We’ll help you navigate the legal processes – no matter what stage you’re at
Whether you’re just starting to contemplate what would happen if you separated from your partner, or have already reached agreements following separation, our family lawyers can help you.
Based in Concord in Sydney’s inner west, we’re experienced in a range of areas of family law, including:
- Parenting Disputes
- Property Settlement
- De Facto relationships
- Spousal Maintenance
- Same-sex Relationships
- Financial Agreements
- Child Support and child support agreements
We’ll help you understand your legal rights and make the tough decisions
Our specialist family lawyers will explain the legal processes, and the issues your situation presents, in a way that’s simple and clear.
We’ll give you advice that will add clarity to your future and help you find the strength to move forward.
If it’s initial advice you’re after, we’ll work through your concerns and provide you with honest legal advice about likely outcomes. We’ll make sure you know where you stand and what options are available.
If you and your former partner have already reached an informal agreement about your children or financial affairs, we can help ensure the agreement you’ve come to is fair and equitable (and, most importantly, in your interests and the interests of any children you may have).
At Calabrese Lawyers, we encourage you to try and reach an agreement with your former partner where possible, rather than resorting to the added burden of a court hearing.
If an agreement is reached, our highly experienced and skilled team can draft legally enforceable Family Court Orders that give certainty to your agreement. If your matter cannot be settled and legal proceedings are commenced, you can be confident your family lawyer will be with you every step of the way to achieve a fair result as soon as possible.
We’ll listen, and help you get back on track
We understand that family law problems are emotionally draining. We’ll listen to you carefully, because we know every person and every situation is different. And we’ll confidently sort out the legalities so you can focus on sorting out personal issues and getting your life back on track.
At your first consultation, you can expect thorough and personalised preliminary legal advice on your family law matter at a reduced rate. We’ll get to know each other, answer your questions and discuss the way forward.
