Divorce law: Applications for divorce can be difficult on their own. When things like property and financial settlements are taken into account, things become even more complicated, especially if you and your partner have a lot of financial assets to split. It’s an especially good idea to engage the services of a family lawyer if your separation isn’t clean and amicable. If you have to go to court to determine how your financial and physical assets are going to be separated, the Robinson Lawyers team can help you build the strongest defence possible.
Parenting & child custody: Sometimes, separated parents have trouble agreeing on child custody and financial maintenance arrangements. In cases like this, the matter may be taken to court. Our team will work alongside you and your ex partner to try and resolve things in a friendly manner. We understand just how stressful post-separation issues can be, and we will therefore work alongside you to help you achieve trouble-free outcomes that meet your expectations.
If it becomes necessary to take a child-related dispute to the Family Court, our team at Robinson Lawyers will work alongside you to help achieve the best outcomes possible.

At Robinson Lawyers, we always recommend working towards amicable agreements that are made out of court.

No matter whether a court is hearing a case related to criminal law, commercial law, civil law, or family law, the process is going to be adversarial. In other words, the case will often be played out like a contest or battle where the winner takes all, and that theme runs from the moment when one of the party’s first meet with their lawyer, through the court’s final decision.
In family law cases, especially those relating to divorce, property settlements and child custody, the atmosphere in which the whole process is played out can be bitter, and at times vitriolic. It is perhaps understandable given the emotions that are at play, and in the eyes of the divorcing couple how high the stakes might seem given that we are talking about their finances, their home, and their children if they are parents.
However, despite the high stakes and the desire to ‘win’, treating divorce as a war against a bitter enemy usually ends up with no winners. Instead, the divorcing couple goes through months of turmoil, legal costs keep rising, their children get put through an emotional ordeal, and in the end, the Family Court’s decision invariably results in neither party getting everything they were fighting for.
To be fair, not every divorcing couple ends up as bitter enemies with the sole objective of making the other’s life as miserable as possible. Thankfully, the majority of divorce cases are settled amicably, with property settlements and arrangements for child support and visitation all agreed without the need for a court to make any judgment.
Sadly, though, for the ones that are conducted in a spirit that is the polar opposite of what we have just described, a lot more is lost than is ever gained. To give you some examples, here is what it can cost a couple whose divorce descends into a maelstrom of animosity, and by cost, we do not just mean dollars, although as you will see, their bank balances will certainly be deleted.
#1: Family lawyer fees can be very high once the matter is settled…and this is for both parties.
#2: The whole process can last a long time – during which time neither parties can make plans for their futures or those of their children.
#3: A scenario where neither can communicate in any way whatsoever meaning matters such as agreeing on co-parenting decisions is nigh on impossible.
#4: Ultimately, and despite all the above, the decision is taken out of their hands and into that of the family court.
Alternatively, if the divorcing couple has the sense to restrain any ill will they have towards each other, and consider what is best for them and their children, here are how those outcomes could change dramatically.
#1: Minimal legal fees as all the lawyers would be doing is drafting the agreement. In some scenarios, no lawyers are necessary at all.
#2: The divorce can be agreed upon and settled within weeks or at worst a few months
#3: An environment where both parents can discuss matters amicably means better decisions relating to their children can be made.
#4: They are choosing an outcome that is best for both of them and their children, not the family court.
We hope you agree the second set of outcomes that follow an amicable divorce are far superior to the first set.
