Our Story

At Village Family Lawyers, we believe in the power of collaboration and support. Founded by family lawyer Lauren Wilson, our firm recognises that it takes a village to help individuals recover from separation and divorce. That’s why we work closely within our team and with psychologists, mediators, financial advisers, and other professionals to offer comprehensive assistance. As many of us are parents ourselves, we have a deep understanding of family dynamics and are committed to resolving family law issues in a calm and practical manner.

Divorce and Separation

A divorce marks the legal end of a marriage and is an essential step in severing financial ties with your former spouse. While you can apply for divorce independently, our personalised approach ensures that you receive the necessary advice and support for a smooth and efficient process.


Property and Financial Settlements

Following separation, the division of property and financial matters can be complex. Our team is here to guide you through this process, ensuring you understand your entitlements and helping you reach a resolution without resorting to litigation.


Parenting Arrangements

Negotiating parenting arrangements after a separation can be emotionally challenging. We prioritise parenting issues and take a child-focused approach, offering calm and measured guidance to help you navigate this sensitive aspect of the separation process.


Family Violence Matters and Intervention Orders

We understand the urgency and sensitivity surrounding family violence matters. Our experienced lawyers can provide guidance and assist you in obtaining intervention orders to ensure your safety and protection.


De Facto Relationships

At Village Family Lawyers, we offer assistance and legal advice for de facto relationships. Our team is well-versed in the unique considerations and rights involved in de facto relationships.


Mediation is a less stressful, less expensive, and often more effective means of resolving family law matters. Our team at Village Family Lawyers is strongly committed to this approach and will guide you through the mediation process. We believe in maintaining control over the outcome and finding mutually agreeable solutions for all parties involved

Federal Circuit and Family Court of Australia Proceedings

In cases where court proceedings are necessary, we provide robust representation and support throughout the process. Our dedicated team will ensure that you are well informed, and we strive to settle matters before reaching the final court hearing.
