Walls Bridges are your Family Law Specialists on the Mornington Peninsula

As an accredited family law specialist, Walls Bridges has a proven higher level of competency in advising you about how the law applies to your situation.

The Expertise to Help With All Areas of Family Law

Our family law specialists can advise and represent you in all areas of family law. This includes separation and divorce, property settlements, parenting and custody issues, Court proceedings, intervention orders, family violence issues, financial support, child support, pre-nuptial agreements, and Binding Financial Agreements. We assist clients right across the Mornington Peninsula, including in and around Frankston and Mornington, as well as surrounding suburbs of Melbourne.

How We Can Help

Our family lawyers have the ability to negotiate and achieve a fair settlement. If you have an agreement with your ex-partner, we can legally document that for you in a way that is cost-effective. If you have to go to Court, we can provide you with the best representation.

As experienced family lawyers on the Mornington Peninsula, we cannot stress enough the importance of obtaining the right advice early – not only about the law, but also about options available to resolve your particular situation. Family law issues are emotional and can be difficult to navigate, especially when each individual situation is different and unique. Getting legal advice from a lawyer that specialises in family law equips you with information that empowers you to make the right decisions and get a good outcome.

As your family lawyer, we are there to guide you through the process and help you make the right decisions. Our lawyers service clients across the Mornington Peninsula, Frankston and Melbourne. We have the following role:

  • To listen to you and understand your needs;
  • To help you identify and focus on the issues that are most important;
  • To support you to get a just and equitable outcome;
  • To help you resolve your conflict / dispute and reach agreement;
  • To advocate strongly for you where it matters and make your case convincing to a Judge;
  • To be upfront and honest with you in what you can achieve;
  • To explain and guide you through the legal process and give you options to resolve your situation.

At Walls Bridges, our family law lawyers understand the value of empowering you to make the right decisions. Get the right advice and representation – and get it early.

Mornington Family Lawyers and Collaborative Professionals

Collaborative practice in separation and divorce means that rather than you and your ex-partner each engaging a lawyer to advocate for your individual entitlements, you specifically engage a family lawyer to work co-operatively and constructively with your ex-partner’s lawyer to get a satisfactory and timely outcome for both of you.

At Walls Bridges, we specialise in this area and work with specific collaborative lawyers and other professionals relevant to your case such as counsellors and financial advisors. Through working together, an amicable settlement can be secured that’s also beneficial to the family as a whole.
