There’s a better way to do family law

Hickman Family Lawyers Perth

Nobody wants to go through a separation or divorce.

It’s one of the the most stressful life events you can experience.

But unfortunately, sometimes these things happen. And we want to guide you through the legal process.

Because the last thing you need right now, when you’re going through this emotional time, is to feel confused and overwhelmed by paperwork and lawyer speak, right?

We are Hickman Family Lawyers, and we are a bit different to other family lawyers in Perth.

One of Perth’s leading family law firms, Hickman Family Lawyers have the same management, same ethos, and same commitment to providing high quality family law service aimed at resolving matters as early as possible.

We have seen firsthand how expensive family law matters can be. All it does is eat away into your asset pool to the point where you’ve spent a fortune, and haven’t got the results you want.

That’s not our style.

It’s really important to us that we provide family law services at reasonable rates. We know that not everyone has an unlimited amount of funds to spend on divorce lawyers – and our main objective is to help you and your family.

Our team of divorce lawyers in Perth have a bucket-load of knowledge in family law. Our aim is to help you understand the full legal impact that a divorce will have on you and your family – and guide you through it.

A marriage annulment is a legal proceeding which effectively “cancels” the marriage between two parties due to it being considered void under certain conditions stated by the Family Law Act. Learn how a Hickman Family annulment lawyer can help you with a marriage annulment in Perth.

Hickman Family Lawyers’ child custody and child support lawyers will ensure you’re fairly represented when it comes to resolving disputes over matters regarding your children. We’ll help you navigate the relevant laws to achieve the best outcome for you and your family.

There are three types of restraining orders issued in Perth – a Family Violence Restraining Order, a Violence Restraining Order (VRO) and a Misconduct Restraining Order. At Hickman Family Lawyers our VRO lawyers in Perth are well-versed in representing our clients with all types of restraining orders.

Spousal maintenance is the financial support given to a former partner if they are unable to adequately support themselves (and often their children). A spousal maintenance lawyer can take you through this process.

Whether you and your partner are struggling to reach an agreement over finances, access to your children or who gets the dog, our team at Hickman Family Lawyers has the expertise to help reach a settlement through family mediation.

Property settlements

When it comes to divorce and property, many of our clients have lots of questions about how the process of dividing property and other assets works. Our divorce lawyers in Perth know all there is to know when it comes to divorce and property.


Consent Orders

If you’ve already agreed with your former partner about parenting arrangements or how you’re going to divide your property, you can bypass a big chunk of the legal process and apply straight to the Family Court of Western Australia for consent orders in terms of your agreement. Contact us today to find out more.

    Our client reviews

    After reading the reviews about Hickman Family Lawyers I made an appointment. I was not disappointed. Ella was thorough, knowledgeable, compassionate and professional. I have no hesitation in referring Hickman Family Lawyers.
    Hickman Family Lawyers and in particular Ella was professional and concise. In a settlement that went for over a year she had the balance right knowing that it was as much about keeping me informed and providing options as to what to do in a simple and understandable way.
    Hickman Family Lawyers provided caring support for my family during a long complicated family court procedure involving young children. They were prompt in dealing with all correspondence, frank with their advice and excellent in their handling of court and mediation procedures. I would not hesitate to recommend this legal practice.
    Hickman Family Lawyers is a great efficient company. During my process Ella was amazing, understanding, trustworthy and extremely professional. Everything went well and moved quickly thanks to her. Thank you Hickman Family Lawyers and Ella!
