Family Law

A FAMILY LAWYER BY YOUR SIDE

We’re by your side. Our team has extensive experience in Family Law and are at the forefront of championing change on domestic violence.

Joplin Lawyers are also your experienced Divorce Lawyers for assistance with separation, divorce law and marriage annulment.

Whether you have a straight-forward split, complex property, and financial settlements, family businesses to divide or difficult and complicated parenting arrangements to resolve – we aim to create a sanctuary around you while vigorously defending you.

We understand both the legislation and the tools available to protect your family and provide relief. However, we also look for the best outcome for your family.

In Family Law, the first step is mediation and Joplin Lawyers will be there with you through the process. Our aim is to always limit your exposure to Court proceedings. Avoiding court offers a faster outcome for all involved and is less emotionally and financially draining.

However, if we need to go to Court, all our team has extensive court experience and we are with you all the way.

We understand that you are not just presenting us with a legal problem, but your life and that each situation is unique. We take great care to provide a sanctuary for you during this time while making sure you are protected at every step of the way.

We can also guide you to services that can help you and your children get through this period. Our Director, Joplin Higgins is on the Independent Children’s Lawyer Panel with the Legal Aid Commission of NSW.

To assist with family law matters, you may be able to obtain a Legal Aid grant. 

We’re passionate about tackling domestic violence at its root cause and stopping the cycle. Joplin Higgins recently received the Westpac Social Change Fellowship Recipient to travel to the USA to learn programs of change for domestic violence.
