What kind of cases do family lawyers handle in Melbourne?

“With Melbourne being an incredibly diverse community, we handle the whole range of family law services,” says Yianni Kordos from AFL Melbourne. “We handle things like children’s cases and making sure the child’s best interests are kept at the forefront of the case, property settlement, as well as different scenarios in family law, ranging from binding financial agreements to supporting people throughout a separation.”

Head of Family Law at AFL-Kordos, Bill Kordos, has also represented a diverse range of clients and scenarios with varied individual circumstances. “Victoria is one of the most culturally diverse states in Australia. That means we deal with a diverse clientele born both in Australia and overseas, and we look to provide compassionate tailored professional advice and support to clients from all walks of life.

Our team is dedicated and focused on getting the best outcomes possible for our clients and making sure every single client is 100% informed and supported throughout their legal matter, no matter whether it’s a binding financial agreement or going through a separation with children and splitting property. We also aim to resolve matters firstly through mediation if it’s possible, although sometimes, it isn’t.”

 How much does a family lawyer cost in Melbourne?

Firstly, it can be difficult to give an estimate of what your case will cost. The complexity of your personal circumstances and the willingness of the other party to engage can be important in the overall costs.

That said, our lawyers will endeavour to give you an estimate or an indication of what the costs might be and the structure of our fees so that you are fully informed. To get an estimated cost for your case, get in touch with our office.

We’ll give you a no-cost, no-obligation phone call to get an understanding of your situation, your relationship and what needs to be legally determined. After that, we’ll invite you to a strategy session where we’ll dive into your case more deeply.

What are the key differences in Victorian family law compared to other states and jurisdictions?

Most family law in Australia is run at a federal level and will be similar in each state or territory. Several laws can affect your case, including:

  • The Marriage Act of 1961
  • The Family Law Act of 1975
  • Child Support (Registration and Collection) Act of 1988
  • Child Support (Assessment) Act of 1989

In what Court are family law matters dealt with in Melbourne?
