Family Law Guide



Team Carew Counsel welcomes you to our family law guide – an environment created to help you learn about family law related issues. The guide is designed to help you navigate through the various areas of family law, including issues associated with family law (be they legal or otherwise), and provide you with some insight into the family law system and a way forward, whether you are in the early stages of a relationship or going through separation. If there is an issue that we have not covered that is of interest to you, please let us know by contacting us here.

We have divided the guide into easy to navigate categories so that you can find what you are looking for more quickly. For example, a category tailor-made to provide you with a framework for working with your family lawyer, particularly in terms of what to expect in your first interview with a lawyer and how our lawyers deal with the cost of representing you in our quest to achieve a timely and cost effective resolution.

We have also provided articles that explain the terminology and philosophy surrounding family law issues.

This guide provides a handy overview of most issues which arise in family law so please enjoy the articles, and keep checking back as we will continue to add more articles to this guide. If we can be of further assistance please do not hesitate to contact us. We pride ourselves on great customer service and transparency, in particular in regard to our fees. We look forward to helping you in any way we can!
