Cullen Macleod provides a full range of family law services

Our team offers a comprehensive range of skills and experience to deliver pragmatic results in a timely and cost effective way .

Why should I use Cullen Macleod?

At Cullen Macleod we are large enough to provide you with a team of highly experienced and skilled lawyers, but small enough that you will be able to deal with the one or two people actually working on your file. This mean s that when you contact your lawyer you will speak with someone who understands your needs and has up to date information on the progress of your matter.

Due to this, our clients range from international individuals involved in family law disputes in Australia to local people needing family law assistance.

We take a pragmatic approach to problem solving . W e will not use your precious resources where we know that the result will not justify the expense or energy required. Where possible, we will provide you with a range of options so that you can decide which approach best meets your needs.

Our approach is to understand your needs and to meet these in the way that serves you best, in a timeframe that works for you and that delivers value, always with your preferred outcome in mind.

What are the services we provide?

The breakdown of a marriage or a de facto relationship is a stressful and often confusing experience. Issues are often complex, diverse and carry an emotional burden.

We provide you with friendly, empathetic, prompt and professional advice to enable you to make the right decisions following the breakdown of your relationship.

Our family law team has super technical and legal knowledge with a depth of experience across all areas. Our family law team also has access to the resources and knowledge of our company’s other specialist teams, such as commercial law, property law and settlements.

This allows us to provide clear, concise advice to guide clients and enable them to make this difficult transition in life as quickly and easily as possible.
