Our Range Of Family Law Services


Rigoli Lawyers has over 30 years of experience in a wide range of family law matters, including the below, which we can assist you with in a professional and compassionate manner.

Applying For A Divorce




The primary grounds for divorce require that you have been separated for at least 12 months. There are times when one spouse is unable to leave the family home, which is referred to as “separation under the same roof“.


Corroboration from a family member or friend is required as proof of such an arrangement. An important consideration for married couples is being able to present your marriage certificate as proof of marriage, which is also required in addition to proof of divorce.


Domestic & Family Violence




Physical abuse, verbal abuse, sexual abuse, threats and coercion can all be forms of family and domestic violence all resulting in pain and suffering.

Rigoli Lawyers can help you with immediate legal measures and protect you and your family.


Applying for an Intervention order


An intervention order will help to protect you as the courts will issue an order legally prohibiting any contact from the other party to you or your family where there is risk of harm from the other party.


Applying for a restraining order


A restraining order, on the other hand, sets out more specific restrictions and, once established by the courts, can make it illegal for someone to come within a certain radius of your home or workplace.. If breached both restraining and intervention orders can result in criminal prosecution by Police.


Property Settlements





After a divorce case is started one question many may ask is – which assets are they are entitled to and how should assets be split?

Some assets may include:

  • Property such as land or your home;
  • Vehicles;
  • Bank accounts (individual, joint accounts or children accounts);
  • Collectable possessions artwork, memorabilia, and anything else of value such as intellectual property or a company’s goodwill value


We can assist you in arranging independent valuations with real estate agents and other experts to determine a property’s market value so that you can divide your assets appropriately and receive what you are entitled to.


Child Custody & Arrangements





When it comes to divorce cases whereby children are involved, the general assumption is that decision-making in these areas will be shared by both parents in order to protect the child’s or children’s best interests.


Occasionally this just isn’t possible or there are safety concerns for the children such as domestic violence or an abusive partner in the relationship.


In these cases, if the parents cannot agree the Court will ultimately decide the outcome, which could include granting all responsibility to one of the parties or establishing “shared parental responsibility” arrangements for both parties.
