RT Legal has a committed and dedicated family law team with significant experience and exposure in all matters of family law.
We understand the emotion experienced by family law clients and the practical issues involved when dividing property and arranging for the ongoing care of children.
Our lawyers have a working knowledge of the Family Law Act 1975 (Cth) and Family Court and Federal Circuit Court practice and procedures.
We have a comprehensive understanding of Family Dispute Resolution processes and endorse, where appropriate, a collaborative approach to settling family law matters.
We have represented clients on numerous occasions at settlement conferences and appeared many times before the Family Court of Australia and Federal Circuit Court.
We represent clients in all areas of family law, including:
- Property proceedings
- De facto relationships
- Same sex relationships
- Children and parenting matters
- Urgent applications, intervention orders and Court hearings
- Child support and spousal maintenance
- Representation at mediation and dispute resolution
- Settlement conferences and collaborative law processes
Our focus is on finding practical and cost-effective solutions for our clients, ensuring their rights are protected, and that they have sufficient advice to make informed decisions.
We extend those services as agents to any firm who has a need for representation in a family law matter. Our involvement as your agent can be as minimal or as detailed as you require.
Why use RT Legal as your family law agent?
Our lawyers are experienced negotiators with a wealth of knowledge in all areas of family law. We have excellent advocacy skills with a track record for reliability and a readiness to appear at short notice.
Whether you require us to appear as your agent at Court, during settlement negotiations or other dispute resolution processes, our lawyers will represent your client with the level of enthusiasm and attention we would give our own.
We will take your detailed instructions to ensure we are on the ‘same page’ and that, as far as possible, the desired outcome is achieved. We will report directly to you and take interim instructions, where necessary, so you can promptly communicate settlement outcomes or Court orders back to your client.
By using our agency services, you can retain your client with the assistance of a professional, experienced in family law practice. You remain the solicitor on record with control over the matter. Even if family law is not your ‘usual’ area of expertise, you need not refer your client elsewhere, minimising the risk of losing business to another firm.
If you have the need for expert agency representation for your family law matter, please call for a confidential discussion.
