Divorce and separation

Our compassionate family lawyers understand that a relationship breakdown can be one of the most confusing and emotional times in a person’s life; therefore, we offer you expert legal advice to take the next step. We can help you negotiate an outcome as quickly as possible to let you move on with your life. If there are issues of property, parenting, maintenance and child support to consider, let our experienced family lawyers help you obtain the right outcome for your situation.

Children’s matters

Making decisions and determining arrangements for children’s care can be difficult and complicated. Our experienced Geelong family lawyers focus on the child’s best interests while considering the parents’ circumstances.

Property and financial settlements

Our Family Law team can advise you of the most appropriate manner to formalise a property or financial settlement effectively.

Child support

Under the relevant legislation, every parent has a primary duty to maintain their children. Child support is assessed and collected by the Child Support Agency (“CSA“) which is part of the Australian Government Department of Human Services.

Usually, the parent with whom the child lives applies to the CSA for an assessment of the amount of child support payable by the other parent.  If there is an agreement by both parents, we can assist you in drafting a private Child Support Agreement registered with CSA.

Family violence and intervention orders

An Intervention Order aims to protect a person from family violence or stalking by a family member or someone they know.

If you have been a victim of family violence, it is essential to ensure that you and your children are protected from this violence. Protection is available through an Intervention Order through the Magistrates’ Court, or a Family Violence Order through the Family Court.

The Family Law team at Whyte Just & Moore can assist you with your application to the Court for an Intervention Order and appear at Court on your behalf at the hearing.

We recognise that family violence is complex and challenging, which is why our lawyers are committed to defending each of our clients and their children’s welfare and personal safety.
