Family & Child Specialists

Whilst We Resolve Your Family Law Matters Your Children Are In Safe Hands

We understand that family separations and child custody and support disputes can be traumatic and unsettling times. That is why at Farrar Gesini Dunn we have a team of professionally trained and experienced Child and Family Specialists to support you and your family through the whole process.  We are the only family law firm in Australia that offers a service like this to our clients.

They will work alongside your lawyer to help you with all the things the legal system can’t fix.  They will support and guide you through the transition of separation and help with the grief and other challenges (whether that be a separation or a death).  While your lawyer can help with the legal issues, our experience is that there are many aspects of the matters we deal with that benefit from input from someone with a different background and experience.

They also provide our clients with assistance with parenting arrangements, both formulating orders and helping with issues that arise afterwards, specifically issues regarding non-compliance with Orders.  We offer complimentary counselling and support to our clients in both Family, Estate Planning and Estate Dispute matters.

Where possible, FGD work through your legal matters via a mediation process to avoid taking the matter to court. Mediation helps resolve conflict through negotiation with the aim to reach a mutually acceptable agreement for all parties. Our child specialists support these negotiations skilfully assessing and accommodating unique relationships and personalities.  It can be hugely helpful to have someone help you and your lawyer work out what kind of arrangement is going to be best for your family.

At FGD our priority is supporting you through your family law matter as seamlessly and stress free as possible. Having the right team on your side to support you and finalise your arrangements and legal matters is essential. If you, or someone you know, needs this kind of support, please contact us today.
