Family Law


When adopting a child, it is important that all relevant regulations are complied with to ensure that the said adoption is properly registered. This will prevent unintended consequences for the adoptive family and the adopted child in the future.

Our firm is able to assist with the entire adoption procedure, including liaising with the Social Welfare Department, applying for an adoption order from the Court and registering the adoption with the National Registration Department.

Marriage Dissolution

The dissolution of marriage is more often than not a challenging matter to deal with. Emotions can run high as the parties attempt to settle on issues such as custody, alimony and the division of matrimonial property.

Given the delicate nature of this process, our firm believes in empowering our clients to make the best decisions for themselves and their loved ones. To this end, we focus on the use of direct of negotiation and mediation.

Where the dissolution becomes contentious, we are able to draw on our collective experience to advance and safeguard our clients’ interests when it comes to spousal maintenance, custody and financial support for children as well as the division of matrimonial property.
