Family Law

Moloney MacCallum Abdelshahied Lawyers practises in Family law including Marriage and De Facto law. 

We can assist clients with all legal matters arising during a relationship or from relationship breakdown, and following separation.

Our team is compassionate and understands that separation is daunting and an emotionally charged process which in most cases results in significant financial stress. At Moloney MacCallum Abdelshahied Lawyers we work to help you resolve your issues as quickly and as cost-effectively as possible.

We adopt a collaborative approach, attempting to resolve disputes and manage issues through negotiation and mediation. However, we also recognise that cooperation between the parties is required to settle a matter and when the parties cannot resolve the issues by agreement then Court intervention may be necessary. The team at Moloney MacCallum Abdelshahied Lawyers, have the skills, experience and ability to seek assistance from the Family Law Courts on an urgent basis if required. 

We appear in the Family Court and Federal Circuit Court on a regular basis.

We’ll organise a meeting with our experienced family lawyer during which general preliminary advice will be provided which aims to guide you through the steps of resolving your matter. You will receive clear legal advice and options specific to your circumstances. 

Our goal is to have you walk away from your initial meeting with a clear pathway about how to resolve your issues, along with the costs involved. Following the consultation, our advice is confirmed in writing which is included within the fixed fee consultation price.

Leading the Family Law area of our firm is our experienced Family lawyer, Antonious Abdelshahied.  Antonious completely understands that children are the most important and potentially vulnerable parties in any relationship breakdown and separation.
