Why You Need a Family Lawyer: The Benefits of Hiring a Professional in Sydney

The separation from your partner and spouse can be the worst experience in your life.

You need a specialist family lawyer who understands that separation is difficult and that many changes take place at this sensitive time, such as the time you spend with your children, where you live, access to money and your rights when you separate.

You also need a family law specialist who can deal with complex matters and can provide you with tailored advice to protect your rights, the safety of your children, your finances and ultimately, your overall well-being.

This article will focus on the many reasons why you require a family lawyer for your case.

The Importance of Hiring a Family Lawyer

It is important that you engage a Family Law Accredited Specialist to guide you through the challenges that separation can often present. At Dettmann Phair Lawyers, we have an experienced family law team that:

  • Can deal with all of the complex aspects of family law disputes;
  • Has the capacity to assist you with parenting, property and spouse maintenance issues during this emotional time;
  • Can ensure that you obtain the best outcome.

We set out below the benefits of hiring a professional in Sydney and why you need to engage an experienced family lawyer for your family law matter.

The Complex Aspects of All Family Law Matters

At Dettmann Phair Lawyers, our family lawyers are very experienced in all aspects of family law. Our principal, Damian Phair, has a Masters of Law in Family Law and is an Accredited Specialist in Family Law.  Our family lawyers know the family law process inside and out and can speak with authority to both you and your former partner as to what should occur after separation.

Furthermore, many of our clients present with complex family law matters, whether in relation to parenting or property, and our family lawyers have the knowledge and understanding to resolve complicated matters efficiently and effectively. A lawyer with limited experience in family law might be a detriment to your family law matter because they do not understand the processes and cannot properly guide you through the family law experience. Our team of family law specialists, on the other hand, have the experience and dedication you need to successfully resolve all your family law issues at the earliest possible opportunity.

From divorce cases, child custody, and de facto relationships to property settlement, we can help in all legal matters and ensure you are given the right strategy tailored to your unique case.

Emotional support

As already touched on above, separation can be a tumultuous time for you, your former partner and your children. Our family lawyers are empathetic to your needs whilst offering level-headed, independent advice to assist you and your family in navigating the emotionally charged challenges that can arise following a separation. Separation can involve a lot of decision making, both short term and long term, and you need a professional to offer you clear-cut advice to ensure that the decisions you make today have a positive impact on your future.

We are also able to refer you to a range of non-legal professionals who can assist you and your family throughout the process, including counsellors, psychologists, and family therapists. We support our clients from the moment they initially reach out to us for advice until their matter is resolved on a final basis.

Best possible outcome

In the North Shore of Sydney, most homes are worth upwards of at least $2,500,000, and the family home will often make up the biggest asset in the asset pool. In terms of a property settlement, this means that each 1 per cent in your favour represents $25,000, and 10 per cent in your favour would equate to $250,000. Our Sydney family lawyers will advocate for your entitlements to ensure that in financial matters, you receive the best possible outcome, which in today’s market could be life changing.

In relation to parenting, our family lawyers will tirelessly advocate for your parental rights and the best interests of your children. We have experience in a variety of cases, including those involving complex matters such as family violence, drug or alcohol use, relocation, and parental alienation. Where you cannot reach an agreement with your former partner in relation to parenting, we understand the processes available to give you and your children the best possible outcome.

At Dettmann Phair Lawyers, we will advise you immediately of your entitlements under the law, given our depth of experience and knowledge as family lawyers. We will immediately assess your legal rights, including whether you are eligible for spousal maintenance, exclusive occupancy of the family home, and confirm with you your rights as a parent.
