Family Law

Family law refers to all the aspects of family life such as: births, adoption, bringing up of children, marriage, divorce and death.


At Les Keady Legal, we recognise that family law is one of the most complex and difficult areas of the law. There are no easy ways to solve family issues because of nature of the relationships and wave of emotions.

Divorce and separations, especially when children are involved, is a sensitive and life changing event, not without emotional and financial implications on the individuals involved.

Our experienced team at Les Keady Legal, can advise and assist you with the following aspects of family law:

  • Pre-nuptial or financial agreements
  • Divorce (also known as dissolution of marriage)
  • Separation
  • De-facto relationships
  • Child support
  • Child custody, maintenance and guardianship
  • Property settlements
  • Domestic violence
  • Apprehended Violence Order (AVO)
  • Spousal maintenance
  • Court representation
