With more than thirty years’ experience behind us, we practice in all areas of family law, including divorce and separation, property settlements, children’s issues and more. We also work with you in protecting your assets through pre-nuptial agreements and binding financial agreements for cohabitation.
Our vast experience dealing in family law has taught us that divorce and separation can be a highly emotional time, especially when children are involved and that’s why we aim to minimise the pain and help you move through to the next phase in your life. Working as a team in a cost and time effective manner is one of the ways we do this.
Our practice seeks to be the most respected family law firm in Australia.
The people from whom we seek that respect are our clients.
Cost Effective SolutionsOur aim is to offer you the most cost effective solution for your matter. We do this in most cases by attempting to complete our work at a fixed fee so that you have a clear idea of what the matter will cost you before work begins on your file. Your case is discussed with the lawyers and management team to determine the best course of action and ultimately to reduce costs. We aim to cut out all unnecessary costs and to ensure that your matter is completed in a timely but effective manner.
Understanding, Sensitivity, Effectiveness
We understand that the breakdown of a relationship is usually a time of great anxiety for both parties. We find it helpful to identify where the parties are at in terms of the grief cycle.
For most people, it takes up to two years to go through all the phases of grief including: the initial nervous shock, sadness, anger and finally the hope on the horizon. This is where the blue sky reappears and it’s possible for people to see a future without their previous partner. Identifying what you are and your previous partner are going through in the grief cycle will often explain why some behavioural issues surface.
The breakdown of a relationship is for many, a new beginning.
Being the person who you want to be – and not necessarily who you have become – takes courage and support. Your solicitor at Carew Counsel will support you through this major life change with compassion, understanding and a clear sense of direction.
Our lawyers will keep you focused on achieving the best solution to the problem in the most time and cost effective manner.
