Whether you were in a marriage or de-facto relationship, separation and divorce is difficult.

The emotional, financial and psychological impact on you and your family can be very hard to deal with – even if the decision to separate was mutual.

If you are experiencing a relationship breakdown, you need a lawyer who can provide expert advice in a way that you can understand. The Family Law team at Selvaggio Lawyers will help guide you through the separation process to ensure the best possible outcome for your circumstances.

Our team can provide you with advice on:

  • Divorce Applications
  • Formalised arrangements for children
  • Dispute resolution including mediation and collaboration
  • Domestic violence
  • Estate planning arising from separation
  • Property settlements
  • Financial settlements or agreements

From your first appointment through to the making of Final Orders or agreements with respect to divorce and separation, the Family Law team at Selvaggio Lawyers will provide advice that you can rely on.

Selvaggio Lawyers were invaluable in helping me through a difficult time, after unfairly being restricted from seeing my children. I didn’t know where to start. I was dealing with lots of issues at that time and overwhelming emotions. They walked me through the process and made it easy. They answered my questions, no matter how trivial, and took time out of their day to attend to my enquiries.


We have been involved with Selvaggio Lawyers for approximately ten years, almost on a daily basis, due to the high volume of conveyancing work they carry out on our behalf. Selvaggio Lawyers' service has been second to none, with all work carried out in an highly efficient and prompt manner and our dealings with all staff have shown them to be professional and willing to 'go the extra mile' as our legal representatives.

Selvaggio Lawyers were kind and caring through a very difficult time. They provided honest and upfront advice, without the drama.


I have worked with Gillian Leahy of Selvaggio Lawyers since January 2014 on the purchase, sale and assignment of more than 15 properties. The transactions have included several complex Option Deeds and Deeds of Assignment. Gillian’s dedication, professionalism and rapid turnaround of documents have many times made the difference between winning and losing a deal. I recommend Selvaggio Lawyers highly for any property-related matters.
