Divorce, separation and
spousal maintenance

Don’t wait for your divorce or separation to be finalised to arrange finances, assets and child needs. As your highly experienced Divorce Lawyer, we will help you deal with these immediately whilst always keeping your long-term well being in mind.

Pre-nuptial and

We will help you build a sound agreement that can be signed before, during or after a marriage / relationship. A binding Financial Agreement will ensure your assets are protected should an unplanned life event occur.

Wills and will disputes

As the most important financial document of your life (and your family’s too), we make sure your will is as robust as possible so it is able to effectively carry out your wishes.

For a will to be valid there is an array of strict formalities and we have many years experience creating, checking and disputing them on behalf of our clients.

Same-sex couples and
de facto relationships

We enjoy working with our diverse clients base and have helped many same-sex couples and de facto partners understand and reach their relationship goals. We believe in a world of equality and provide a friendly environment where everyone feels accepted.

Domestic violence

We will stand with you whilst helping navigate through a range of options, regardless of your situation or background.  Maspero Legal ensures each and every step of the process is achieved with your safety and comfort as our top priorities.

RECENT CASES

Child custody dispute win

We recently acted for a mother whose child had been abused by the father over several years.  Sadly, this is a common scenario in child custody disputes and Maspero Legal have developed the skills to deal with this situation swiftly.

As such, we successfully obtained orders in the Family Court for our client to have full custody of her daughter, protecting mother and child from further abuse.

Property dispute

Our client’s ex-wife was making excessive property claims against him during a difficult divorce proceeding.

The case ultimately proceeded in the Family Court where we were able to establish that the ex-wife’s claims were completely false, leading to a much more favourable result for our client.

International child custody win

We represented a single mother with three children all aged under 10. Our client’s ex-husband is the father and currently serving a lengthy prison sentence in Sydney.

Originally from Europe with no prospects of employment or financial support in Australia after the divorce, we successfully fought for our client and her children to be able to return to their country of birth.

These matters are notoriously difficult to fight and our 27 years of experience in Family Law ensured our client and her children are now living in their country of choice. Last time we spoke to them, they were the happiest they have been in years!

Ex-partner hiding assets during divorce settlement

Our client is a 45-year-old woman who recently ended her 20-year marriage. Not long after we started acting for her, we suspected her former husband was hiding assets.  After further investigation, we discovered he had hidden a significant number of valuable assets from her in the months leading up to the divorce.

Thanks to our extensive experience in Divorce Law, we immediately launched proceedings in the Family Court and achieved a significant long-term result for our client.

FAMILY LAW INSIGHTS

“Moving on doesn’t mean that you forget about it. It just means you accept what happened and continue living.”

“What screws us up most in life is the picture in our head of how it is supposed to be.”

The greatest pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do.

Life can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forward.

Breakdowns can create breakthroughs. Things fall apart so things can fall together.

Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.

Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try.

If you can dream it you can do it.
