Family Law

At Cathy Stevenson & Associates, we specialise in this area of law. The breakdown of a relationship can very emotional and upsetting for the family.

When a marriage or de facto relationship breaks down, it is also important to think about the arrangements you need to make financially and for your children. Often the legal and personal aspects involve tension and conflict over the division of property and contact with children. Long and drawn-out family law disputes can have a devastating impact on your life and those around you.

The law encourages parties to reach an agreement with property and parenting matters without going to court. When dealing with stress, children, and families, we aim at providing a healthy and sustainable resolution by using a court approved mediator.

At Cathy Stevenson & Associates, our overall approach to family law legal problems primarily focuses on empathy and resolutions. Our aim is to help our clients to resolve their conflict, to reach a “just and equitable” agreement, and to move forward.

Sometimes court is unavoidable. To ease the conflict and stress, excessive legal costs, and time, we focus on client management. When emotions are high, understanding the court process can be very “overwhelming”. Our lawyers work with our clients to find an arrangement and outcome that benefits them.

At Cathy Stevenson & Associates, we are dedicated to our clients and offer ongoing support at no charge when their case has ended.
