Family Law & Mediation
At Kim Armfield and Associates we believe that Family Law is one of the most important branches of the law an attorney can ever pursue. We take great pride in our ability to provide clear and comprehensive legal advice on a full portfolio of family law applications and our team boasts a wealth of experience that underpins our compassionate, no-nonsense approach to everything from divorce proceedings to maintenance matters and parenting plans.
Historically, Family Law matters such as separation, divorce, custody, access and maintenance are often acrimonious and unnecessarily litigious. The courts do not favour this approach and there is a leaning towards settlement and problem-solving via mediation and facilitation. Our Family Law attorneys work closely with each client to determine whether an answer may be provided by means of mediation before proceeding to official litigation. Each matter is treated on its own merit and the various options discussed at length with our clients to find a workable solution.
Our Family Law services include:
Our Mediation services extend to any family dispute and doesn’t only pertain to divorces. We specialise in all aspects of family law and readily recommend mediation as a preferred means to a more practical solution. To this end, we currently have two qualified mediators on our team.

Custody and care of minor children form a very important aspect of family law, and we always endeavour to provide compassionate, practically applicable solutions for all involved.
