What we do

I relate. Collaborative Family Law offers you a simpler way to separate. We empower individuals to make their own decisions that will impact on their families and children over the long term.
 
Our legal team at I relate. Collaborative Family Law can help you through the separation process from start to end, resolving all property and parenting issues arising from your marriage or de facto relationship.
 
Unlike traditional law firms, we provide ongoing, wraparound support such as counselling, parenting programs and case management to assist with the implementation of your parenting agreement. 
 
Our aim is to create a better, long term outcome for all families.

How we work

1. We have a non-adversarial approach, which means we offer alternate dispute resolution for both parties to come to a legally binding agreement outside of the Family Law Courts.

2. We may engage other experts including child consultants and financial advisors to achieve a holistic outcome for your family, based on your individual needs and interests.

3. Our solicitors do not represent clients in court and our focus is to help you reach an agreement in a timely and efficient manner.
 
As a subsidiary of Interrelate, our main purpose is to empower people to thrive in the most vital part of their lives, their relationships. Interrelate are relationship experts with more than 90 years of trusted expertise in sensitive relationship matters, supporting parents and children, and strengthening relationships.
 
We understand how to best support you following the breakdown of your personal relationships.
