Separation can be one of the most difficult life circumstances you can endure and understanding and support is required during this difficult time. Le Brun & Associates’ family and divorce lawyers will provide the personal care and attention you require along with flexible services to accommodate your schedule and needs.
We also appreciate that these matters often need to be resolved without delay, particularly where children are concerned, therefore our experts in Melbourne, Hawthorn, Werribee and Moonee Ponds ensure they attend to these matters as promptly and efficiently as is possible.
We Understand Your Needs
Through these difficult times you need someone dependable to help see you through. We concentrate on addressing your personal needs, whilst ensuring that we act swiftly to secure the best interests of you and your children.
Whether your dispute relates to children, property, or both, our family and divorce lawyers are focused on providing comprehensive, timely and relevant advice and support, to help you.
The Expertise You Need
We have a highly experienced and dedicated team with extensive experience in all areas of Family Law; including divorce, custody and children’s matters, matrimonial and de facto property and Intervention Orders, as well as child support.
Our lawyers routinely appear in the Family Law Courts (Family and Federal Circuit Courts) and State Courts (Intervention Orders), as well as at mediations. Wherever possible, Le Brun & Associates undertake court appearances ‘in-house’ rather than briefing them out.
Acting with complete confidence is vital. We offer the first half hour of our initial consultation completely FREE of charge in order to assess your needs and to ensure that you are always well informed before proceeding.
Our flexible approach means that for particular matters, we can even accept payment at the conclusion when a settlement is finalised.
We thoroughly explore all possible avenues to resolve matters and to avoid the need for Court intervention, including mediation and round table conferences. We can then prepare the required documentation to legally record your agreement, without the requirement of the case going to Court.
Should negotiations be unsuccessful or break down, Le Brun & Associates will ensure that your Court documents are fully prepared in a timely and efficient manner, to ensure that you get the best result possible.
For those who have pre-existing assets or financial resources prior to their marriage or de facto relationship, it is important to consider the financial implications of separation or divorce. A legitimate and accurately worded Binding Financial Agreement (Pre-Nuptial Agreement) can help protect those assets and resources.
Our family lawyers regularly advise on and prepare such agreements, whilst always ensuring that our clients are comprehensively protected and fully informed at all times.
Family Law matters can often require urgent legal help and assistance. At Le Brun & Associates, we will work with you to file urgent applications and meet deadlines. Our team is always available to provide the required professional guidance, including acting on urgent matters such as recovery and/or location orders (return of children), injunctions (protection of property interests) and family violence (intervention orders). We are located in Hawthorn, Werribee and Moonee Ponds and are available for court appearances in Melbourne CBD – or we can arrange to come out to you!
