When to engage a family lawyer in Perth

When a marriage or de facto relationship is ending, it’s a good idea to find out your rights and take steps to prevent potential disputes. For this reason, we recommend engaging a family lawyer as early as possible.

People will often engage a lawyer when they cannot amicably or fairly negotiate the matter on their own. We advise getting legal guidance before negotiations begin, even if you are on good terms with your spouse, as you may be entitled to more than you may realise.
