Amazing Service & Information - I am a Disability Advocate and I was ringing for a distressed client who had had a family member pass away. The lady on the phone was pleasant, professional and tended to my inquiry straight away. Would not hesitate to use this service again.

Thanks to Tracy, Rachael and the team for working with me to give me a better than expected outcome financially and essentially Tracy for keeping me on track during a tough mediation. Still some work to do but you guys have been so professional and helpful throughout this messy process.

The half hour webinar was extremely useful and easy to understand. In a difficult time, you don't want "legal speak" and this was definitely not that, highly recommend for anybody who has just seperated

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.
