Family Lawyers on the Gold Coast
OMB Solicitors provide comprehensive solutions to all your Family Law Matters
Going through a marriage or relationship break-up, especially one involving children, can be one of the most distressing times in a person’s life. It is pertinent at this time to seek the guidance and experience of a qualified Family Lawyer in order to help you understand your legal rights and obligations.
Family Law is a complex area and is dependant on the circumstances of each particular case and the people involved, which is why it is important to obtain advice as to what legal action is involved, or what alternatives may be available to you in order to avoid the need for Court. Where children are involved, we seek to minimise the impact on them and provide the best outcome for you and your family.
To obtain preliminary advice concerning your rights and entitlements, we recommend that you contact our Family Law Solicitor.
Initial Client Consultation
Our initial consultations usually take 1 hour, however, depending on your individual needs and the amount of time needed to assist you, it could take up to 2 hours.
We, therefore, recommend that you allow up to 2 hours for your initial consultation.
Should the initial consultation not run for the full duration of 1 hour, we will only charge the proportion of the time engaged.
For more information on making an enquiry with our Family Law Solicitor, please see our Frequently Asked Questions. Upon booking an initial consultation with our Family Lawyer, we will email you a consultation information sheet for your completion and return prior to your appointment.

It is often the case that upon separation, parties reach an agreement as to the division of their assets, either verbally or in a form that is not legally binding.

DE FACTO RELATIONSHIPS
In March 2009, legislation was passed which recognised that Property Matters between de facto couples was able to be dealt with under the Family Law Act in much the same way as Property Matters between married couples..
This is so regardless of whether you are in a heterosexual relationship, or a same sex relationship…..
FAMILY LAW MEDIATION
People who have gone through a separation will be the first to tell you that the process is daunting, expensive, lengthy and exhausting.
It is therefore important that no matter what your individual case involves, you do everything possible to try and resolve your matter without resorting to Litigation.
DOMESTIC VIOLENCE MATTERS
Family and Domestic Violence is unacceptable in any relationship.
We understand however, that it can often be difficult to admit and recognise that you are in a domestically violent relationship and that it can be frightening and overwhelming to plan an exit to such a relationship, particularly where children are involved.
