What is Family Law?

The major areas are:

Our goal is to get you the best result without having to go to court. Parties can reach an agreement themselves, and just ask us to formalise the arrangements. Mediation using the help of a trained mediator can be an effective way of reaching an agreement, and since the Family Law Courts usually require parties to try mediation before using the courts, it makes sense to try mediation sooner rather than later. Barwick Boitano can help arrange mediation, prepare you for it and then formalise any agreement you have reached.

Family lawyers spend much of their time negotiating to achieve outcomes, and we are skilled in this. We pride ourselves on our ability to settle matters, but if all else fails, court becomes the only option. Whether it is negotiating or litigating, we will be there for you, using our expertise and experience to obtain the best result for you.


Having a Family Law Expert working for you and with you makes sense.

Even if a court has to be used, most matters are resolved before they get to a final hearing – our efforts to settle don’t stop just because you are in the court system. If the matter does have to go before a judge to decide, we will dedicate our skills and experience to getting the best result for you.
