    family lawyer recommendations?

    Did a search, but either old or don't give names. Looking for good family lawyer. Amicable split (as long as MIL keeps out of it), easy settlement, just want to make we're doing it right so we can both move on easily and fairly.

    If it is amicable I'd steer clear of lawyers completely. My ex wife and I did our settlement by consent orders, (Form 11) you can get advice from various community counselling organisations if you need it.

    we pretty much are, it's all negotiated and clear with the only asset being our house. my wife is buying my half of the house, we are just looking for a way to minimise stamp duty really.

    There is no stamp duty in this case (at least there wasn't 3 or 4 years ago)

    ETA sorry to hear about the split...

    Never hurts to pay a little to have peace of mind for the future. Even if it is amicable split now, nothing to say it will still be once one of you starts seeing someone new.

    I went to this guy. He was fantastic.

    I'm with Tim. If you do your research and talk to people who are in and have been in the system you should be able to work it out without the need for a lawyer.
    When you submit your paperwork court will let you know if anything needs correcting in regards to the format. Just be sure to cover your ass in all areas and avoid
    anything that may pop up in the future. ie when you sign the house over be sure to state your not responsible or liable for any maintenance or repairs that may be required at handover.

    It all sounds complex but if you guys are amicable and happy to nut it out you can save each other a few bucks doing it yourselves.

    I'm sure plenty of us have been through it, myself included, but its all pretty simple. Its the lawyers that make it complex and costly.. lol

    I partially agree in that, yes, you do make it sound very complex. I particularly liked the very general "Just be sure to cover your ass in all areas". Could you please name all of these areas, so that none are missed and allow the other party to have financial recourse at an unknown future time (including the settlement of your Estate)?

    Lawyers are "complex and costly" in much the same way as insurance for your motorcycle is. Sure, you can save a few bucks by riding around without insurance, or you can pay a one-off premium and have peace of mind. In the case of contracting a qualified, experienced and specialist Family Lawyer and their Paralegal team - about three hours of your time and less than $2,000 IIRC. That's a pretty small price to pay - and a whole lot less complex by the sound of things.

    Lawyers struggle to make a living out of amicable people! Some engineer delays and create disputes where there were none. Graelins home is declared a family lawyer free zone!

    did exactly the same as this including the sale of the house with doing consent orders its the very detailed including your super but is the best way to go. I was lucky where my ex wife said you have worked for your super and did not touch it.

    all the best Mark

    cheers folks. we have pretty much equal super, will and life insurance always went to my kids so no drama there. we agree on the end result, it's the process (and her mother) causing some conflict. We haven't been married long enough (3 years) to acquire any assets over the house.

    No it hasn't been long....and it's made me realise why to took me until my 40s to get married in the first place....I don't regret it, but never again.
