How mcw family law lawyers can help you

Family law matters can be an emotional process for everyone involved. McInnes Wilson Lawyers understand that. They understand the importance of you and your family’s personal needs and relationships. Their goal is to protect you and your family’s interests in a timely and cost-effective manner.

Contested Hearing

Contested hearings can be stressful and confusing, which is why you must have a solid strategy to protect your rights and interests.

Protecting your assets when entering a relationship

Both de facto and married couples have a right to safeguard their assets. Whether you are interested in preserving your finances, property, or both, make sure you have an air-tight agreement to protect your current and future interests. An agreement can be entered into before you live together, once you already live together, before marriage or during the marriage.

Prenuptial Agreement

This is a written contract drawn up by couples before marriage, discussing the properties and assets (including debt) that belong to each individual and outlining their rights in the event of the marriage ending.

Ensure you are protecting yourself for now and in the future.

Cohabitation Agreement

This provides security for de-facto couples in the event the relationship may end, either through separation or death. It details how matters of assets, property, children and support payments will be handled.

Take the necessary measures to preserve your current and future interests.

Ending a relationship

Deciding to either separate or divorce can be an emotional rollercoaster, impacting you both mentally and financially. If separation or divorce is what you are seeking, make sure you have a plan to ensure you are not doing anything against your interests.

Property Settlement

The laws and processes of property settlements can be complex in an already confusing time. Be sure you are given the correct advice to safeguard your assets.

Divorce Application

Legally ending a marriage can be draining. Make sure you have legal guidance that will support you throughout this difficult time.

Spousal Maintenance

After a relationship ends, one person may be entitled to receive financial payments from the other to maintain their lifestyle. Whether you are required to pay or to be paid, ensure your interests are protected.


Your children are your main priority. When dealing with children’s matters, it is important to have a legal strategy that is designed to create a better future for yourself and your children.

Parenting Agreements

In the aftermath of divorce or separation, it is important to seek assistance in parenting arrangements suitable for everyone in the family, especially the children.

Negotiate an arrangement with sound legal advice to give yourself peace of mind regarding your position for any future concerns.

Change In Name Matters

Legally, a child’s name cannot be changed without consent from both parents. If consent from one parent is not given, an application must be made to the Court.

When matters proceed to Court, ensure that your legal advisors’ main priority is protecting the interests of you and your child.

Child Support Agreements

This outlines the child support payments that must be made between parents or carers and can include periodic payments, payments for expenses such as school fees, medical fees/ insurance and co-curricular activities.

Passport Applications

Ensure you are being given the right guidance in the matter.

Relocation Matters

If you wish to relocate with your child interstate or internationally, you must gain the consent of the other parent or an order of the Court. Alternatively, if a parent has already relocated with your child and you wish to seek their return, ensure you are receiving sound legal advice about the appropriate application to make.
