Family Law

Taylor & Scott has the experience and resources to provide strong, effective support to our clients in Family Law, a complex area of law that contains many potential pitfalls and requires expertise to navigate well.

We work as a team and appreciate the stresses the breakdown of a marriage or de facto relationship often entails, whether financially or emotionally. We treat our clients with sensitivity whilst also providing them robust advice telling them what they need to hear, rather than what they want to hear.

Our approach is simple. We offer efficient and pragmatic solutions to our clients’ disputes in regards to:

Where possible, all efforts are made to achieve resolution by way of negotiation. However, no two matters are the same, and where litigation is required, we never shy away from a fight. We encourage clients to be realistic, educate them about the law and put their best interests ahead of our own. We take our duties to our clients and the Court seriously.

At our initial consultations, we really listen to clients, strategise and tell them what their options are, advise them which road is the best to take, and provide them with a genuine estimate of legal fees, which we confirm in writing. We do not ask to be retained on-the-spot because, just as we provide well-considered advice to clients, we want them to also make an informed decision about their legal representation.

Stop worrying about your matter. We handle matters ranging from the smallest and most amicable, to the most complex and protracted. We value our clients and provide them with respect and transparency.

Strong advocates. High quality work. Specialisation. That is our guarantee.
