Family Law

Family Law is our forte. At Gramelis Attorneys you’ll be given the attention you deserve and you’ll receive effective, practical family law advice delivered in an easy-to-understand manner by an experienced professional. We can help you with:

  • Divorce / Marriage Disputes

  • Children / Parenting Disputes

  • Property Settlements / Financial Disputes

  • Spousal Maintenance

  • Child Support / Binding Child Support Agreements

  • Binding Financial Agreements (prenuptial agreements)

  • De Facto Relationships

  • Same Sex Relationships
     

We understand that the first decision is often the hardest. You may be unsure of whether separation or divorce is the path you wish to take. Obviously, we cannot make this decision for you, but we can support you through this difficult process by giving you clear, concise and practical advice as to your rights and legal entitlements. We’re more than happy to sit down with you and walk you through the legal process, what you can expect, turn your mind to issues that may arise that you might not have considered, and discuss with you the various options available to you, including counselling and family dispute resolution, so you can be better placed to make decisions moving forward.
 

If your matter is in the early stages, it may be possible to resolve the dispute amicably without going to Court. Our principal, Eugene Gramelis, is highly experienced in conducting negotiations and is well respected by family law practitioners. To keep your costs as low as possible, we will explore with you options such as conducting round-table settlement discussions with your partner’s lawyers or arranging mediation. We understand that this is an emotional time for you, and the expense of going to court is often an issue, so we do our best to resolve your matter while at the same time pursuing the best possible outcome for you. After all, you have worked hard to acquire your assets, and if you are going through the divorce process, and facing a new chapter in your life, you want the best possible financial buffer for yourself and your dependents to better prepare you to face anything unforeseen that life might throw your way in the future. Likewise, your children, and ensuring that proper arrangements for their care are put into place, that they spend adequate time with you after separation and continue to benefit from a close and loving relationship with you, is often at the forefront of clients’ priorities.  
 

You may rest assured that regardless of whether your matter settles or goes to court, we will pursue your rights and entitlements with vigour and tenacity. Eugene Gramelis is well-versed in the principles of family law and has vast experience in the conduct of litigation in this area, having regularly appeared in complex parenting cases and property / financial cases (many involving family businesses, companies, trusts, superannuation splitting orders, inter-family loans, inheritances, gifts from families, assets located overseas, assets acquired post-separation and disputes with creditors) at all levels of the family law jurisdiction, including:
