Family Law Solutions

Welcome to Family Law Solutions. We specialise in providing expert legal services in family law matters. Our experienced solicitor, Bernadette Farnell is dedicated to offering compassionate and comprehensive legal advice tailored to your unique situation. Whether you’re dealing with issues related to children, property, spousal maintenance, financial agreements, divorce, or child support, we’re here to help you navigate the complexities of family law with confidence and clarity.


When it comes to matters involving children, their well-being is our top priority. We provide legal advice in relation to where the child lives, time spent with significant others and decision making in relation to long term issues. Our goal is to ensure that the best interests of the child are always at the forefront of any legal decision-making process.


Property settlements can be one of the most contentious aspects of family law. Our solicitor has extensive experience in handling property disputes and settlements, ensuring you receive a fair and equitable outcome. We work diligently to protect your assets and secure your financial future.

Spousal Maintenance

Spousal maintenance can be a critical component of post-separation financial arrangements. Whether you are seeking spousal maintenance or defending against a claim, our expert legal advice will help you understand your rights and obligations, ensuring you receive or pay an appropriate amount.

Financial Agreements

Pre-marriage and de facto relationship financial agreements, commonly known as prenuptial agreements, can provide clarity and protection for both parties. We assist in drafting, reviewing, and negotiating these agreements to ensure your financial interests are safeguarded in the event of a separation.


Divorce is a challenging process, both emotionally and legally. Our solicitor provides supportive and effective legal guidance to help you through every step of the divorce process, from filing the initial paperwork to finalising the divorce order. We aim to make the process as smooth and stress-free as possible.

Child Support
