Your Fair Share: Pragmatic Family Law Settlements Protecting Your Rights

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.

The right representation for you.

At CM Lawyers we’re able to provide legal representation and advice to all married or defacto heterosexual or same-sex couples. The advice you receive will always be based on your personal situation.

Looking for an end to bitter disagreements?

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.
