Welcome to Doolan Callaghan Family Lawyers​

Your Options

There are a number of different options or pathways available to you in family law. It may be that your matter is suitable for mediation or collaborative law. Alternatively, a negotiated settlement by correspondence or a round-table settlement conference may be best for your matter. Each matter is unique and different personalities also suit different approaches. We can assist you in deciding which pathway or option is best for your family.

We are very proud of our record of resolving most matters without the need for the Court’s intervention. We act for our clients in a professional, amicable manner that allows clients to reach timely and effective solutions and to move on with their lives with dignity. This is particularly important when there are children involved and parents still need to be able to communicate about their children an ongoing basis.

But sometimes Court proceedings are necessary. That might occur when the other person refuses to negotiate or if there is some urgency or if negotiations break down, and in those situations we have the experience, determination and expertise to represent you and achieve the optimum outcome on your behalf.

Our goal is to find the best pathway and solution for you. This may be:
