We have the legal expertise to support your through all issues of Family Law.

Sometimes relationships breakdown. When these relationships become irreparable there are often considerations related property and/or children that need to be resolved. We will provide legal advice for divorce, property settlement and parenting matters, supporting you in this new transition of life events.

O’Hearn Lawyers understand it can often be a distressing time for families and our focus is to move matters along as quickly as possible to avoid further stress on family members. We have the best interests of our clients in mind and will work to the best of our ability to achieve the desired resolution, without it reaching court, including mediation. If however we do need to proceed with court appearances we are here to support you every step of the way.

"I've used O'Hearn Lawyers for my business for many years now, and though our contact is infrequent, my experience has always been positive. What I appreciate most is their 'real world' advice, rather than advice that simply increases their own billable hours. They're highly experienced and excellent at what they do, but they're rational and honest also, and I always feel they have our best interests at heart."
