We help you through it.
There are no two ways about it. No matter who you are and what your circumstances, separation is both difficult and disruptive. That’s why our legal team always works to prioritise settlement over argument. We’ll help you avoid court while you focus with moving on.
Our experienced legal team comes to you with a different approach to Sydney’s bigger law firms. Intimate, personalised and involved—the CM Lawyers family law team is a supportive force during trying times. You’ll never receive blanket service. Instead, we provide dedicated case workers and tailored advice about your legal rights, entitlements and obligations. The lines of communication are always open. So you’re always kept in the loop.
Some separations are more complicated than others. Dividing a lifetime of investments—emotional and financial—is never cut and dry. We work hard to settle matters for former spouses engaged in disputes over finances, assets or children. Our principal solicitor, Christine Manolakos, has years of experience and longstanding working relationships with many of Sydney’s legal teams and firms. Her work in the field means she’s able to negotiate through mediation and help avoid costly litigation.
If you want to ask us a question, get some more information or just want to speak to one of our solicitors to get some solid advice, fill out a contact form now and we’ll get back to you very soon.
