I was recommended to go to Pearsons Lawyers and speak to Leanne Abela about my family law matter. I was told that Leanne and her team will win your case! From my initial meeting to my very last court hearing Pearson’s Lawyers have provided exceptional professionalism and the highest level of compassion during one of the most challenging times in my life. Louis Horsley was appointed my solicitor and his expertise, knowledge and genuine care for me and my two young boys was unbelievable. We had a complex legal case and nothing thrown his way was left defeated. Louis is extremely committed he ensured I got the best outcome and kept me grounded and focused through the whole process. To come away with the win was an unbelievable feeling and to be able to trust a team of people who were fighting my battle with me, was truly remarkable! Thank you Louis, Kenny, Karen, Christine, and Leanne! You are amazing people to do the work you do and deal with the stress of your clients with such respect and grace! I am forever grateful! Louis you are an absolute legend and I wish you all the success in your career, you are amazing!

I dealt with a difficult case where goal posts changed and an inconsistent and nasty approach from the other side dragged proceedings on for a long time. Kenny with great support from Joe lead me through the details and assured me of the process. Amanda was great closing out with a completely unexpected win for my children and I.The team at Glenroy as a whole is warm, welcoming, supportive and professional, I wasn't mislead in any way and prepped well for whatever situation we were facing, I applaud the team as they really do go along the journey with you.I hope anyone reading this doesn't face the same as I did but if you're looking for a good all round professional and experienced team, look no further than Pearson's Glenroy. Stay patient and listen to their advise.Thanks to Kenny, Joe, Amanda, Loriene, Jayne, Christine, Sam, Andrew, Venus and anyone else remotely associated with my case, life changing and appreciated.Regards,Nick E

I met with Jacqui Spry. She was the most down to earth and up front person I’ve ever come across. She never gave up on me. Jacqui always let me know what was happening and what could happen along the way. She kept the fees down as much as she could under the circumstances. It was the most traumatic time I’ve ever had in my whole life (a horrible domestic violence situation), although she helped me keep it together. She helped me to do what I thought was the undoable. Jacqui was fantastic and I’m so glad I had her to represent me. 😊

Leanne, Anne and Deborah have been remarkable! These professional women are transparent, honest, hardworking and most importantly they remain child focused at all times without a doubt. They have gone well above and beyond expectations and they are respectful, understanding and empathetic. They were recommended to me by a highly regarded criminal Lawyer as being extremely well respected Lawyers within the Family Court system - this is accurate on every level as they have conducted themselves with professionalism. Anne, Deborah and Leanne are extremely knowledgable, most certainly ethical and absolutely fearless!I have experienced first hand that practising Family Law is not simply just a job for Anne, Deborah and Leanne, but rather a passion for enhancing family peace and security.

What do I need to get a divorce?

To get a divorce, you must file an Application for Divorce with the Family Court and pay a filing fee. Once the Application is filed, it must be served on the other party. If the Court is satisfied that the parties have been separated for 12 months and all other matters have been appropriately dealt with, a Divorce Order will be granted.

The process is relatively straightforward and inexpensive, but it is important to seek legal advice to protect your rights.

How much will it cost me to get a divorce?

Filing for a divorce is relatively inexpensive, with costs typically starting at around $1,000 unless you are eligible for a reduced concession fee. However, additional charges will vary depending on the complexity of the case – which may relate to overseas marriages or difficulties locating original paperwork. Pearsons Lawyers can discuss costs during your free consultation and provide regular updates so there are no surprises.

How do we decide on parenting arrangements?

After a separation, it is common for parents to disagree about the living arrangements, supervision, and care of their children. This can be a very difficult and stressful time for everyone involved. Parents can seek separate legal advice and work with Pearsons Lawyers to negotiate a parenting agreement.

We can also help parents engage a mediator or mediation service to facilitate discussions about parenting matters. If an agreement can be reached through lawyers, our family law specialists can formalise the parenting plan into court orders.

How does property settlement work?

Usually, couples can agree on property settlement through negotiations, mediation, or the courts. Mediation may be an option if negotiations cannot achieve an agreement. Mediation is a process where a neutral third party helps the couple reach an agreement. If mediation is unsuccessful, the couple may need to go to Court. The Court will hear evidence from both parties and decide how the property should be divided.
