Family Law

Prior to the breakdown of a relationship

Ryan & Ryan Lawyers can assist you to construct financial agreements (known colloquially as ‘prenups’) that define yours and your partner’s respective rights and entitlements in the event of separation. We also regularly provide advice to those who are contemplating separation and would like to understand the path that lies ahead.

Following the breakdown of a relationship, we can assist you to reach agreement with your former partner and to draw up your agreement in the appropriate written form.

Where agreement has not yet been reached, we are able to negotiate with your former partner or their solicitor to reach a settlement with a minimum of trouble or expense. Where negotiations fail, we are able to assist you to make, or respond to, an application in Court.

Family Law Matters

We are experienced in complex parenting matters involving risk issues, family violence and relocation.

Any family law matter can be stressful and daunting for all participants. With a view to minimising that experience, we always show empathy and respect to all involved and communicate openly, honestly and firmly with our client’s best interests at heart. Based in Toukley on the Central Coast of NSW, we are proud to take care of our local community.

We also service clients from all over the state, interstate and overseas. We regularly meet with existing and prospective clients in person away from the office, by telephone or over Zoom or Teams where travel to or from our office is impractical.

Some of the more specific things with which we can assist you in the area of family law are:

  • Applications for divorce or nullity of marriage;
  • Financial agreements, both before and after separation;
  • Applications for consent orders;
  • Parenting plans;
  • Mediation and alternative dispute resolution;
  • Child support and child maintenance;
  • ALL parenting and children’s matters;
  • ALL aspects of property settlement;
  • ALL matters within the jurisdiction of Western Australia;
