From all walks of life, clients come to us during circumstances that are extremely testing and trying. Designed to be an empathetic and respectful team of family lawyers, Carew Counsel is a legal resource that’s backed by professionalism and compassion when you need it most. As we guide you through your individual journey, you’ll always be met with simple-to-understand language and a genuine commitment to delivering you the best possible resolution.

Working across Melbourne as devoted family law specialists, solicitors and lawyers, each member of Carew Counsel utilises unmatched connections and established relationships to better understand each case we work on. Keeping careful considerations and respectful collaboration with our clients at the top of our list of priorities, we aim to take the pain out of challenging, uncertain circumstances.

We know that you want to reach a resolution quickly and in the most cost-effective way possible, and so do we. Throughout each step of the process, we’ll endeavour to demystify the field of family law, working alongside you to deliver guidance across self-help opportunities and further legal support. Our objective is to remain client-focused, cost-conscious and respectful – no matter the context.

Our family law specialists treat each case as unique

Our line of work at Carew Counsel means we’re directly influencing people’s lives each and every day, so you’re not just a contract to us. While your main goal is to find peaceful resolutions to your circumstances, ours is to do this and see you happy as the end result – and that’s exactly what we intend on doing.

  • Separation and divorce: These are painful times and often the last thing couples going through a breakdown want to do is navigate the red tape and documentation that is involved. We can help you move on with your life and make the legal proceedings as simple as possible, so you can achieve the best outcome.
  • Child custody: The welfare of your children is central to these discussions and we will ensure a peaceful agreement is reached, so your family can move on with the next chapter of their lives.
  • Financial agreements: Our specialists will help fairly divide up all finances, assets and assist with financial-related matters across the board. We’ll manage details around property, settlements, pre-nuptial agreements, superannuation and more.
  • Wills and estates: The passing of a loved one is overwhelming, and the legal matters that come with it can be even more so. We aim to give certainty and clarity during this trying time, providing you with full compassion and support when you need it most. Offering assistance with all elements across wills and estate disputes, inheritance protection, estate administration, executor assistance, probates and more – we’re your helping hand when life feels tough.

Carew Counsel can also assist with a range of other legal services, including spousal maintenance, child support, collaborative law, financial agreements, court representation and intervention orders.
