“Counsel Family Lawyers helped me to resolve parenting and property matters with my former partner. I was more than just a client when Alex represented me. Alex is a sweetheart. Alex put all and heart and soul into my case for the best outcome. Alex will explain difficult matters and simple terms and always find a solution. In the end my partner and I were able to resolve our family matters without the need for a Final Hearing, which meant I did not have to give evidence in Court. I am now spending regular time with our children and we have all moved on with our lives after separation. Thank you Alex.”

“Counsel Family Lawyers helped me to reach agreement with my former partner regarding parenting, property and divorce matters. This was a stressful time of my life as my former partner obtained an Intervention Order against me and initially prevented me from spending time with my children. Alex attended a Conciliation Conference at Court with me and gave me realistic advice about the range of likely outcomes. My partner and I were able to resolve our family law matters without the need for multiple Court hearings which saved us time and money. I am now spending regular time with our children and we have all moved on with our lives after separation”

“Counsel Family Lawyers helped me to reach agreement with my former partner regarding the care arrangements for our four children at the first Court hearing. This was a difficult time for our family as we have all had to make significant changes to accommodate two separate households.  Alex Finemore represented me at the hearing and drafted detailed proposed orders which the children’s mother agreed to with some amendments. The children now have a routine in place which I feel is in their best interests”

“Counsel Family Lawyers helped me to reach agreement with my former de facto partner regarding parenting and financial matters. This was a stressful time of my life as my former partner issued Court proceedings seeking that I leave the family home and that our daughter live with him. The lawyers at Counsel Family Lawyers defended my former partner’s interim application and then arranged a private mediation where we were able to reach an agreement without the need for a Final Hearing which saved us time and money. My daughter continues to live with me and spends regular time with her father.”
