Family law is an emotionally charged area of law. In the breakdown of a marriage or de facto relationship, you not only need help solving your legal problems but you also need a family lawyer who takes the time to listen to you and is easy to talk to, understands your needs, takes a personal interest in your wellbeing and strives to find a practical legal solution. At Doray Legal in Perth, this is exactly what you will find with our family lawyers.

Our family lawyers always strive to achieve a fair and practical resolution of your family law dispute by negotiation and in the most cost-effective manner. If court action is inevitable, we will represent you with utmost skill and determination. It is always important to minimise the emotional stress and anxiety caused by a family law problem and to minimise your legal costs when seeking to resolve it.

When parties separate, the most common issue to be resolved between the parties is the issue of how the assets and liabilities of the parties are to be divided. This practice is commonly known as property settlement. 

Married and de facto couples (including same sex couples) can apply to the Family Court for assistance in resolving their disputes on matters concerning their children.

You may be entitled to seek financial support from your spouse or de facto partner (if the Family Court has jurisdiction to deal with your de facto relationship). The financial support is commonly referred to as spousal maintenance.

When parties separate, their children would need to be financially supported until they reach the age of 18.  In some cases, the children may need to be financially supported even after they have become adults because they are at TAFE or university.

Our family lawyers can provide you with advice, assistance or representation in relation to your divorce application or proceedings.

Sometimes separated parties are able to negotiate an agreement in relation to financial issues or arrangements for the children or child support. We can assist in formalising the agreement reached.
