Family law

A clear way forward

Family matters can be painful and distressing, particularly when there are children involved. The emotional toll can be great and the legal and financial implications significant.

At Baker Wilson we understand that your situation is unique and can provide you with the support and assistance you need when you need it most. Our approach is highly-personal, sensitive and confidential. We’ll listen to your concerns and work with you to identify, progress through and address the issues.

We have a great deal of experience in managing a wide range of family matters and can advise on divorce, property settlements, parenting orders, financial agreements, adoption, domestic violence and abuse.  We are sympathetic to your needs and can provide you with certainty, assurance and an understanding of how the law applies to your situation.
