We were pleased to sponsor a plenary session at this year’s Family Law Retreat held at Noosa in June.
Deputy Chief Justice of the Family Court, the Honourable Robert McLelland and Sydney Senior Counsel, Mr Michael Kearney SC gave interesting presentations on the topic “No Starting Point of Equality: True or False?”
The presentations highlighted the wide discretion given to Judges under the Family Law Act when determining property settlements. It is not surprising that reasonable minds can differ about what a just and equitable resolution looks like in any particular case.
The services we provide through Shearer Doyle Law can provide an entire solution to a dispute so court action is not necessary.
Or, in the more difficult and contested cases we can provide a partial solution, resolving issues, removing uncertainty and reducing costs for the more difficult cases that proceed to trial.
We are always happy to talk to family law practitioners about the services we provide and how they can be used to resolve disputes with greater efficiency and less cost.
