What We Do

Our family law firm protects the things that matter

The law is complicated and stressful enough already. Add family to the mix, and you have a potent recipe for mental distress and anxiety.

But it doesn’t have to be this way.

A good family lawyer gives you the confidence to know that your family is being looked after following the breakdown of a relationship. We help you fight the feelings of confusion and insecurity that often accompany family law cases.

CBD Family Lawyers provides professional, timely, helpful advice – all the things you want and need during such a difficult time.

There is light at the end of the tunnel – and our family lawyers can help get you there.

About Us

Real advice from real people, tailored for your family

“Compassion” and “law” are two words that are rarely paired together – something that we believe needs to change.

Your family’s case should be handled by a professional who doesn’t just know the law, but who also understands your family and what matters the most to you.

More importantly, it should be handled by a lawyer who works their hardest to minimise the trauma that comes with family law cases.

CBD Family Lawyers strives to be that exception to the rule.

We work to resolve your case through mediation when possible. A family breakdown is difficult enough as it is – no need to add the stress of an appearance at a Family Law Court.

In cases where urgent action is needed however, your case may need to be escalated to a courtroom and intervention orders issued. It all depends on the circumstances.

It all depends. A good family lawyer won’t just treat your case with the dignity and tact it demands – they will also choose a course of action that best suits your case and circumstances.

How our family lawyers help

Family Mediation & Dispute Resolution

A divorce or separation is difficult enough as it is – the last thing you’ll want to do is add the stress of a court case to it.

In the real world, legal action is a last resort. It’s expensive, stressful and time-consuming – the last thing you want during such a sensitive period.

If the process is already taking too much of an emotional toll on you, Family Dispute Resolution (FDR) is a viable alternative.

  • No expensive legal fees
  • No need to worry about being “out-lawyered”
  • Spare your children a vicious custody battle

As registered FDR mediators, our family lawyers in Melbourne can mediate between you and your partner, allowing you to both come to a mutually-agreeable arrangement without the stress or cost of a court case.
