How We Can Help


Frank Law can assist you in navigating the processes surrounding divorce.

Division of Property

If your relationship breaks down, it is important to define your financial arrangements with your former partner. We can advise you through the process of dividing your property and provide clarity and certainty for you moving forward.

Parenting Disputes & Arrangements

It is necessary to think about what is in the best interests of the children when determining who makes major decisions about the children, and when the children will spend time with each parent. We will help you have assurance and stability moving forward by formalising a parenting arrangement for your children.

Business and Family Law

With a strong Corporate division, we can easily move between Family and Commercial law. Our knowledgeable lawyers can advise you if you or your former partner have business interests, and how to protect them.

Binding Financial Agreement

A binding financial agreement defines how your property will be rearranged and divided in certain circumstances. It can be created before, during or after the breakdown of a marriage or de facto relationship.
