Family Law

If you are experiencing a family breakdown or separation, you need a confident, experienced and dedicated legal advisor. Family law is a highly specialised field of practice so it’s critical to ensure you choose the right firm to represent you – no matter what your situation.

The team at Coleman Greig is committed to providing the best possible advice in a timely manner. Our lawyers are approachable and easily accessible when you need them, often working together to utilise the diverse experience and skill-set available within the team to ensure the best possible outcome for you.

Specialist Advice - critical for the best outcome  

At Coleman Greig Family Lawyers we are specialists in our field and highly regarded within the profession for our experience and expertise.

We have the expertise to resolve complex parenting, property and financial issues, and can work with other professionals to ensure you (and your family) achieve the best possible outcome.

City Appointments and Overseas Clients

Many of our clients either work in, or live around,  the Sydney-CBD and we can easily arrange to meet with you in the city if that is more convenient. In recent years, as Australians become more mobile and move internationally for work, the Family Law Team at Coleman Greig has also helped an increasing number of clients who live overseas but have family law proceedings in Australia. Distance is not an issue and our international clients receive the same high quality, professional legal advice in their family law matter.

The Importance of your Initial Consultation

The first step towards resolving your situation is to attend an initial consultation with one of our experienced family lawyers to discuss your personal circumstances and determine the best possible way forward. This initial consultation is critical in identifying the key issues at stake, and the options available to you and your family.

By meeting with an Accredited Specialist, you can be assured that the advice and options you discuss at this initial stage are the most appropriate. We will explain a range of alternatives and you can then decide whether you would like to proceed, and the individual lawyer most suited to your situation.

Plain English Advice

At Coleman Greig we give you sound advice in easy to understand ‘Plain English’ – so you know exactly where you stand and what to do.
