Why Choose Feeney Family Law?
You may not expect a lawyer you consult about a relationship breakdown to be interested in your wellbeing but at Feeney Family Law, we are. You have many roles in life and being a partner is not the only one. You have to ensure you can continue to meet your other obligations and fulfil your other roles in life. That may mean you ask for a referral to a counsellor, you join a gym or just recognise that that there is only one you and that you might feel stretched to the point of breaking after separation and during any resolution process.
At Feeney Family Law we recognise there is only one you – a parent, an employee, a person who has to get up every morning even when the world you get up into has changed.
The same things matter to you the day after a separation as mattered the day before. When will you spend time with your children? How will you pay your bills? Where will you live? Will you have a job? Do you need to get a job? Is there study you could take on to increase your chances of getting a higher income or a more family friendly job?
What has changed is that you may no longer be able to act unilaterally to achieve these goals. Your former partner has an interest in the property you share. They have an interest in your earning capacity and income. Why? These are both relevant to the issues the Family Law Act considers in adjusting property or the Child Support Agency considers in working out the child support to be paid or received. So you initially are working in a partnership environment where the key elements of the partnership love and commitment to a future together are no longer there.
At Feeney Family Law we work with you to produce responses that work to resolution not conflict. We are experienced in working in a conflict environment. We are not afraid to enter into a conflict space if that is what your matter needs but we believe in investigating the conversations and perspectives to contain conflict if possible. We produce the process that best meets your needs.
We also have established connections with complementary service providers such as accountants, financial planners, property valuers and counsellors. This means that we can link you with other professionals to help advance your matter, particularly if it is complex. Feeney Family Law is proud to be an LGBTIQ friendly law firm.
