Melbourne’s leading specialist family lawyers offer legal advice to the families of northern suburban regions; Bundoora, Epping, Mill Park, Whittlesea, Woodstock, Eden Park, Thomastown and other outskirt areas of North of Melbourne.
We see that not many families and individuals are aware that seeking legal service for every aspect of their family issues is not as expensive as they thought it would be. Filing a divorce case in the family court and waiting for the court to settle property & finances, child custody, spousal maintenance etc. for you, is not going to serve. If you think divorce process works like this; then NO, you are mistaken!
Firstly, going all out through courts for your divorce is time-consuming,
Secondly, it won’t be easy on your pockets,
Thirdly, the emotional hardship doubles due to contesting the family issue in the court, and
Most importantly, the family courts do not take cases of divorce arrangements for hearing unless they are very complicated, hurt a child’s interest ( if not taken for hearing) or no other means of alternative legal assistance (such as family mediation, counselling, negotiation) helped in resolving the post-separation settlement matters.
The courts now instruct the parties to try mediation, conciliation and counselling to sort their post-divorce arrangments. If parties cannot agree mutually, court representation becomes compulsory.
We, at family lawyers in Melbourne, understand the pros and cons of both ways of approaching a divorce case. Hence, we often advise our clients to maintain a fair-minded relationship with their ex-spouse/ partner and keep an open communication channel.

Separation and divorce aren’t easy to anyone. Our family law attorneys understand the sensitivity of the situation and act with utmost compassion and professionalism. We also arrange for legal aid if your case is eligible for one.
For those who do not know about legal aid, let us explain. Legal aid is the concession in legal fees for those who are devoid of funds and cannot pay legal charges ensuing their divorce proceedings. Legal aid is provided to legitimate cases in family law, civil and criminal law issues. Legal aid is for those people who are left with nothing to pay towards legal assistance charges, like victims of domestic abuse.
To be eligible to apply for legal aid, one has to prove the merit of their case and undergo few tests to get concession in legal fees. Here’s more of legal aid details- http://www.australia.gov.au/information-and-services/public-safety-and-law/legal-aid
