We engaged Forge Legal to train our Sr Staff in general HR policies and procedures both basic and advanced. We had 10 staff members attend the training. It was incredibly helpful, professional and informative. We have used Forge Legal before and will most certainly use them again. Tracey was amazing!

We have used Forge Legal for conveyancing services for the the purchase of two properties so far. They have been so helpful throughout the whole process hence we went back for the second time. Properties were purchased in a trust and they ensured we received appropriate advice as needed.We are now in the process of having our wills organised and they have been so welcoming and reasonably priced. It has been great especially since we are returning customers 👌🏻Would highly recommend to contact forge legal for any conveyance work neededTijana

If you are looking for a law firm who actually cares about you, your case and who isn’t in it just to rip you off, then look no further than Forge Legal. Tracey and her team went above and beyond to advise me through my case. Tracey was incredible. Even though I would call her at the most inconvenient of times and with 0 notice, she never hesitated to provide me with the advice and support I needed. The work produced by Forge Legal was high quality and it was clear from the very beginning that they actually cared about receiving a favorable result at the end. Right from our first contact, Tracey made me feel confident in the fact that Forge Legal was the right firm to represent my case and now I a would not even consider going anywhere else.Thanks you so much to Tracey and her team.

A relationship is defined as a De facto relationship if the parties have lived together in a meaningful relationship for a period of at least 2 years, or have a child together or other relevant circumstances apply. De facto relationships can be either opposite-sex or same-sex relationships. The same 4 step process for determining the division of property applies to De facto relationships and marriages.

Defacto property matters can be finalised either by Consent Orders or Binding Financial Agreement. In the event that a matter is required to be brought to court, we can assist you to ensure that the matter is brought on quickly with the least cost to you.
