Why would a mother need a family lawyer?

When it comes to your kids, as a mother, you have their best interests at heart and whether you’ve recently separated or you’re well and truly underway in the divorce process, when it comes to a relationship breakdown and managing parenting, it’s no secret that it can be a challenging time.

A family lawyer can help mums who have recently separated understand their rights and options and help them navigate their way through parenting matters.

Some of the common parenting matters a family lawyer can help mothers with include:

Child Support Matters

Parents have a duty to provide for their children financially. However, when it comes to child support, this can be a complex issue as there are numerous ways child support and providing for your child financially can be managed.

Whether you’re worried about having to pay excessive child support, you’re not sure how to handle the costs of raising a child, or you just have no idea where to begin when it comes to child support, we can help you. We can help you understand your obligations and make sure that your child is getting the financial support they need from both parents.

Domestic and Family Violence Allegations

The welfare and safety of your child are of the utmost importance when deciding parenting matters. If your parenting abilities have been put into question or you’ve been accused of abuse or violence, this can be extremely demoralising, and unfortunately, this can be a common accusation.

Addressing these kinds of issues swiftly and properly is extremely important to ensure that you’re able to continue to enjoy your relationship with your children.

Don’t leave your rights as a mother to chance. No two situations are the same and decisions need to be made based on your unique circumstances which is where we come in.

Client Testimonials and Reviews

  • Sarah Taylor

    During 2021 I had the pleasure of meeting and working with Antoinette Marie Gauci from Unified Family Lawyers.

    After meeting and consulting with more than one firm I choose to work with Antoinette as I navigated my separation and property settlement. From the initial appointment to final settlement I found Antoinette to be informative, supportive and fair in the advise she offered . I always felt as though my best interests were being highlighted and all of my communications were answered promptly.

    Apart from offering exceptional service I also felt that UFA was very reasonably priced.

    I would highly recommend working with Unified Family Lawyers.

    Alex and Donna are unparalleled professionals and experts in their fields. If you are going through a difficult divorce, it can be really hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Alex and Donna have helped make this emotionally stressful time as easy as I think it can be with their down to earth and diligent communication. They take a lot of pride in their work and they are extremely talented and experienced. I genuinely feel like I am in very capable and caring hands.

  • Kristenn Wong

    Navigating separation and divorce can typically be an emotionally, mentally and financially onerous undertaking.

    However, engaging Unified Lawyers and entrusting my matter to the highly capable and consistently responsive team of Alex Bourne and Chris Kissoglou has certainly alleviated my stress, knowing that they were acting in my best interests with their sensible and pragmatic advice. With their skilled assistance, I was able to finalise my parenting plan and property settlement via mediation with a pleasing outcome that obviated the protracted costs of litigation.

  • Shreya

    Highly recommend Unified Lawyers and a special mention to the lawyer who assisted me with my case – Donna Nguyen. She was thoroughly professional since the day I contacted her, always on top of asking for information, filing the case on time and ensuring communication was top notch every step of the way. Most importantly very upfront around fees structure and was very informative around any hidden fees throughout the process. If every lawyer was like her, there wouldn’t ever be a single person left in doubt around laws and court procedures. She’s an absolute rockstar!

  • Geetha De Silva

    When looking for a family lawyer, a firm in the city asked for a large sum upfront to start with. With unified lawyers, upfront fee was reasonable and affordable for someone going through a difficult period in their life. I was invoiced monthly as I went, which was helpful. Taylor Reardon was my lawyer and she was very friendly and easy to communicate with. She did a great job guiding me through the process and supporting me through the asset split after separation. I highly recommend unified lawyers for family law matters.

  • muntashir mamun

    I recommend Unified Lawyers for any Family or Domestic violence or issues; I have received excellent consultation when I called them first time in regards to an issue related to my neighbour. They first listen to issue and explained what would be potential ways to deal with the issue from lawful perspective and also send an follow up email to confirmed what was discussed. I was very worried with the particular issue but after talking to them I sensed hope and clear understanding what to do next. I give them a five star.
