Divorce can be a stressful time in your life.

But it doesn’t have to be about fighting with your ex. There is a kinder, respectful and smarter way to separate. 

Balance Family Law is a multi-award winning family law firm that keeps individuals and families out of court and focused on the future.

Let us help you sort it out.

WHAT BEST DESCRIBES YOUR SITUATION?

I am separated or thinking about separating, what are our options?
We have an amicable relationship and would like a fast and affordable way to formalise our separation.
We’re having trouble reaching an agreement but are keen to sort it out peacefully.
I need to get my Will & Estate Plan sorted.

WE CAN HELP YOU TO...

Save time, money and rest easy!

If you’ve separated and and agree on how to divide your assets and on parenting arrangements, our Forward>> solutions will provide you with a legally binding agreement swiftly and at an affordable fixed fee. Achieve peace of mind and save tens of thousands of dollars in Stamp Duty (or Capital Gains Tax) on your property transfer.

We are all about keeping things simple. Finalising your separation doesn’t have to be complicated.

“Many thanks for how easy you made our property transfer. The process was so smooth and you were both fantastic to deal with.”

– Z.M, client.

Reflect, refocus and rebuild after separation…

Mindset is everything and having the right approach at the very beginning, can set you on a path to an amicable divorce. Knowledge about the family law process and your options provides comfort and clarity during an otherwise challenging period.

“I highly recommend Perpetua Kish (Pepe). She handled my case with care, respect and dedication. She never treated me as just another case and she’s always truly invested in the best possible outcome for my children and myself.”

– K.W, client 

Achieve a peaceful outcome…

We are trained in conflict coaching, collaborative practice and human services. We understand that family law problems require not only a legal solution, but a human one. We work with financial planners, mediators and other professionals to provide the best possible advice and guidance to you.

“Jonathon and Pepe handled my case very respectfully and efficiently. They kept me up to date with any changes and progress throughout the whole process and made an effort to make sure I understood my rights and that they were protected. They were extremely professional and I felt they had my best interest at heart.”

– R.R, client

Create your Will and Estate Plan...

Do you know that you need a new Will after your separation? We work with you to make sure that your estate plan is in order, and your loved ones will be looked after so you can rest easy.

“Balance Family Law, an award winning professional team that exude excellence, integrity and compassion in all services. Absolutely recommend Balance for family law and estate planning.”

PRICING

We are all about providing a simple, stress-free service and a streamlined separation process.
Over the years, we have come to realise that many of our friends and family would struggle with legal fees if they ever had to engage a family lawyer. So in response, we have created a firm that is accessible, affordable and 100% fixed fee.
We consider what we need to do to get the job done right. We check that every ‘i’ is dotted and every ‘t’ is crossed. We are thorough and conscientious. We are not a DIY service. The law is complicated and helping you is all part of the process.
We care. We go that extra mile. You may not always remember every word we said to you after the dust has settled on your agreement, but you will remember how we made you feel.
We want to make a difference. We don’t think it’s fair to charge $100 for a 10-minute phone call. In fact, all phone calls (and emails) are part of our fixed fees. You can email or call us without worrying about racking up the costs.
We factor in our running costs. We consider your needs but also how much we need to keep us in business and continue to offer an awesome service.
We value transparency and our fixed fees are provided to you upon engagement so you know what your fees will be, every step of the way. We we will always have that conversation with you up front to find the pricing model that will fit your needs.

I love to travel and have already made it to 18 countries across Europe and Asia. My personal goal is to travel to every continent, including Antarctica. My favourite destination so far is Lauterbrunnen in Switzerland, where I skydived over the Swiss Alps!

Outside of the law and travel, I am a qualified lifeguard and swimming instructor, and have taught kids from as young as six months to adults.

I am a passionate environmentalist and animal lover. I advocate for kinder lawyering and living through my volunteer work at local sanctuaries and community organisations. I am an unashamed dance mum extraordinaire to my two lively daughters and wife to my ever so supportive and husband. I adore cats, and have 3 – Ruby, Cleo and Kimba, who are very popular on Instagram! You can check them out here.
