Family lawyer Blacktown

If you need a family lawyer in Blacktown, then look no further than Michael Vassili Barristers & Solicitors. We will always fight to ensure that we achieve a result that is in the best interest of the child.

Our experience in Family Law has facilitated a proven track record of settlements in the application stage of proceedings. Of course, we realise that sometimes there is no scope to settle and we endeavour to achieve the most desirable outcome.

Parenting Outcomes

The two most common disparities between newly divorced parents are in the living and allocated time arrangements of their children. When a compromise cannot be reached, the Court is tasked with the difficult but necessary job of determining what is in the best interests of the children.

This process along with the conflict of separation can be lengthy and traumatic (not to mention expensive) if not dealt with competently and efficiently.

We pride ourselves on being able to guide our clients through formal orders of the Court either as decided at a Hearing or by agreement, while always maintaining a child-focused approach. We will appoint the most suited family lawyer in our Blacktown practice for your particular case.

Property Applications

The process of obtaining your equitable share of matrimonial assets starts with sought advice as to a range of conceivable outcomes.

If a settlement cannot be achieved, we competently and assertively provide representations to ensure the best possible outcome for you.

The Court considers some factors. However it identifies the matrimonial assets; values them; assesses the contributions (financial and non-financial for each party); and then considers future needs.

Navigating through this procedure can be filled with all manner of little intricacies, your appointed family lawyer from our Blacktown practice will guide you through this complicated process making it that little bit easier.

Binding Financial Agreements

When it comes to Family Law, the best outcome is an agreed outcome.

Binding Financial Agreements are an alternative to Court. We can advise on and draft these as well as consent orders.

In any event, you are required by law to seek a settlement outcome before commencing proceedings, and we will always strongly advise that you do so, as it is much cheaper than a court obtained result.
