Are We The Right Family Lawyers For You?

We’re not the best fit for everyone or every situation, and that’s ok. 

We're A Fit For You If...

Looking For One-On-One Attention

Limiting the number of clients we work with ensures that you always receive one-on-one attention and a personalised service that meets your unique separation journey.

Focused On Finding A Resolution

Actively look for ways to resolve your family law matter so that you can move on and live your best life.

Standing Up To The Bully, The Gaslighter And The Ostrich

Your ex is being a bully, making you feel a little crazy or simply burying their head in the sand over the separation. It’s okay – we’ve got you.

Support From Your Legal Team

You’re looking for your ‘wing-person’ and a team that ‘has your back’. We’re your team to support you to lean in to finding a resolution or asking the Court to make a decision on your behalf.

Technology Is An Expectation

You expect that we would be using technology to bring you an efficient service and that is exactly what we do by continuing to invest in technology.

Maybe We're Not For You If...

Vendetta For Your Ex

Wanting to hurt you ex as much as possible is a sure-fire way to halt negotiations and we’re not interested in supporting that.

Committed To Conflict

We call this ‘adopting the ‘noise cancelling’ positon’. No amount of negotiation, discussion or advice will change your mind about the position that you have adopted.

Prioritising Volume Over Quality

Lots of activity can move things along but we’re more interested in nailing helpful and actionable outcomes to get you to a resolution.

Not Wanting To Get Specialist Legal Advice

You’re more content taking advice from well-meaning friends and family and sitting down with a specialist family lawyer doesn’t interest you in the slightest.

Using The Children As A Way To Bargain For A Property Settlement

It’s never okay to intentionally involve children in a family law dispute unless you need to reach a resolution about their care arrangements. If you’re planning to use your children to bargain, we’re not the lawyers for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Family Law can be complex and confusing. Here are the most common questions we get asked as Family Lawyers. Don’t see your question below? You can ask us directly by booking your free consultation.

We’ll have a brief discussion with you over the phone regarding your situation or any other concerns you may have.

This will be followed by an initial consultation. This is your chance to tell us your story. We’ll listen to you and ask you some questions so that we can understand and advise you about any legal issues. We understand that it may be difficult for you to talk about all of the details that are unique to your situation, but the more details you can provide, the better we can understand how to help you.

It can be helpful for you to bring some notes with you with you meet with us, including key dates, any information you feel is important as well as any questions that you might have. If your matter involves property and financial settlement, some notes regarding assets, debts and liabilities may be useful. For matters relating to children, we will need to know some basic information such as their full names and dates of birth. Further information about where they go to school, their interests, and any special needs they may have (such as medical assistance) will also be helpful. It helps to bring whatever you think might be useful to the initial consultation and we can decide on the day what is helpful and what is missing.

Our goal is to ensure that you are better placed to meet the challenges you are facing at the end of your initial consultation, which you should plan to set aside around 1 to 1.5 hours for. You are of course welcome to bring along a support person if you feel that is necessary.

We offer a fixed fee for your initial consultation of $550 inc GST. Whether or not you choose to work with us following this consultation, you should be confident that you will leave with a better understanding of both your legal position and the options available to you.

For many people, some initial advice is enough for them to figure out their next steps and move forward without the need for any further legal advice or assistance. However, if you assess that our practice is the right fit for you, we will invite you to sign a Costs Agreement which we will talk to you about at your initial consultation. Please remember that whilst most initial consultations are the start of an ongoing relationship, you are not obliged to continue to work with us.

At O’Loan Family Law, it is important to us that you feel that the service you receive is deserving of your financial investment.

We are transparent with our charges so that you know what to expect before we start working with you. We offer a fixed price for your initial consultation to give you the opportunity to decide whether we are the right fit for you. Our ongoing hourly rates reflect the quality and experience that you will benefit from as our client. We strive to keep our prices competitive while ensuring that you receive consistent quality advice and support.

Our family law specialists will prepare and serve an Application for Divorce upon your spouse. Depending on the nature of the divorce, you may or may not be required to appear in court. Once the application is filed it generally takes around 6 to 8 weeks for the hearing to occur. Once the court is satisfied after consideration of all of the circumstances, you will be granted with a divorce that will then be finalised one month and one day after the proceedings.

  • De facto couples – property settlement and spousal maintenance orders must be filed within 2 years of separation.
  • Married couples – property settlement applications must be filed within 12 months of the divorce being finalized.
  • Divorce applications – couples can file for a divorce after they have been separated for at least 12 months.

Yes, you can. But you should still arrange for this to be drawn up as a legal document. If this option is available to you, it is ideal to avoiding having to possibly attend Court at a later time, which will ultimately save you time, money and hassle.

At O’Loan Family Law, our family lawyers will evaluate and determine every possible method of resolution available to you, without the need for court proceedings. However, whether you or your family are required to make a court appearance primarily depends on the specific circumstances of your case.

Whether a court will grant you the legal right to relocate with your child or children depends on many factors. These factors may include, but are not limited to:

  • The type of relationship your children have with you and their other parent;
  • How the relocation will affect the children;
  • Considering the children’s views and how they correspond with the children’s best interests;
  • Your or the other parent’s capacity to provide a means of financial and emotional support to the children; and
  • The possibility of future conflicts or court proceedings.

Property settlement can be complicated and depends on your unique circumstances. There is no law that guarantees you or your spouse will receive an equal share of assets. The court considers your initial contributions, your contributions during the relationship, any future needs you may have and whether it is just and equitable to make an adjustment of the ownership of assets.

If you have any questions that we have not answered here, please pick up the phone and call us for a chat.
