Divorce & Family Law

Family Law, Divorce, Property, Children, Child Support, Maintenance & Financial Agreements


Matthies Lawyers South Yarra can provide you with the advice and assistance to ensure you and your family’s legal interests are protected. We act in family law matters of all sizes including complex disputes in the Family Court and Federal Circuit Court of Australia.

We can provide advice in areas of family and relationship law that include:

  • Property – including real property, businesses, companies and trust structures
  • Divorce
  • Parenting arrangements and Child Support
  • Spousal Maintenance
  • Same Sex Relationships
  • Binding Financial Agreements
  • Financial Agreements including pre and post nuptial agreements
  • De Facto Relationships
  • Family Violence

We are transparent in regard to costs and will work with you to come up with a strategy that best serves your needs.  We give forthright and frank advice in order to assist you in resolving your matter as expeditiously as possible. We know that people contemplating separation often need time and guidance to decide on a course of action. We are happy to speak to you before you are ready to take action, so that you are aware of your options.

We work closely with counsellors and family consultants in children’s cases, and have a network of valuers, accountants and investigators to track down business interests and locate assets. Where possible, we attempt to settle disputes outside of court, by negotiation. We understand how difficult a family or relationship breakdown can be, and give empathetic and practical advice tailored to your desired outcome. Some matters can only be resolved by Court proceedings; when required we have the litigation experience to represent you efficiently and effectively in all Australian Courts.

To find out how we can help you, contact Matthies Lawyers for a confidential obligation free discussion at our South Yarra offices.
