Experts will work for the right outcome

Relationship breakdown can be one of the most challenging and stressful experiences in your life and, ultimately, you may end up having to resolve matters through the Family Court – whether through an Application for Consent Orders or, unfortunately, litigation.

“Having the right lawyer is essential, and that’s why you should consider DS Family Law as your first choice,” says Managing Director and Accredited Family Law Specialist Milos Supljeglav.

“Our lawyers work exclusively within the field of matrimonial and de facto relationship law,” he said. “And after 16 years practising in Mandurah, DS has just relocated to new, larger premises at 279 Pinjarra Road.”

“We also have an office in Midland and our ‘parking-friendly’ head office in Perth.”

“However, given that modern life is so fast-paced and time-poor, we can always arrange a mutually convenient time for an initial telephone consultation, or even meet via Teams, Zoom or Skype.”

DS Family Law is highly experienced in guiding clients through all kinds of property settlements – from very modest assets pools to large matters incorporating complex business and Trust structures and involving intergenerational wealth.

They also have experience in prenuptial agreements, providing an asset protection mechanism for couples getting married or entering de facto relationships.

And, of course, separating can often cause disputes over children.

“For almost 20 years, DS Family Law has successfully settled countless, seemingly intractable parenting conflicts,” Milos said.

“However, such litigation can occasionally take several years to resolve, and the emotional and financial costs are very significant. That’s why DS Family Law promotes mediation and the concept of always being child-focused – regardless of how difficult your relationship has become.

“In many cases, parents can be in dispute for years over child support payments, and dealing with the Child Support Agency can often be a frustrating and time-consuming process.”

“A Binding Child Support Agreement can avoid that scenario, and DS Family Law can provide the mandatory advice to make such agreements enforceable.”

With nine lawyers across three offices, DS Family Law ensures through their weekly solicitor meetings that all possible outcomes are canvassed and considered.

“Having the shared knowledge and input of so many lawyers makes sure you’ll remain on the right path throughout a difficult process, and can help bring your dispute to a conclusion more quickly and cost-effectively,” Milos said.

“But if litigation does become necessary, I have more than 20 years’ experience as DS’ In-house Counsel in all types of Family Law disputes including complex interim arguments, trials and Full Court and High Court Appeals.”

At a community level, Milos is a Board member of Coolibah Care in Mandurah and assists at Scales Community Law Centre in Rockingham. Details: (08) 9582 7118 or go to www.dsfamilylaw.com.au.
