Our family law team has a wealth of experience assisting clients dealing with a full range of simple to very complex property law matters, parenting disputes, intervention orders and criminal charges.

Members of the team include Senior Lawyer Richard Hamilton, Lawyer Mei Ngo, Lawyer Caron Easton and paralegal Stacey Raphael.

We regularly deal with helping people going through a separation to obtain an outcome that they are happy with both in relation to property and parenting matters. We deal with complex intermingled trust and company issues, but also help with working out how the family home and your superannuation can be best protected, or fairly apportioned between parties.

We often provide advice to clients at the beginning of relationships to help them achieve better asset protection structures, or to ensure that they have clarity about what would happen in the unlikely event of a separation. Often, we draft financial agreements, or ‘pre nups’ in these situation.

Our team also deals with all types of divorce, spousal maintenance, intervention order and breach of intervention order matters. We have an extensive network of referrers who can also assist you with taxation advice, further financial planning, or more complex criminal matters.

The Nevett Ford Melbourne difference is that we genuinely believe in putting our client’s experience of the legal system and our service as a priority. This means we are open and transparent with you about the process, and the cost, of our service and the family law.

We are able to provide advice in English, French and some Malay, and we have in-house translators for Mandarin and Cantonese-speaking clients.
