  1. Lawyers are great importance in our lives! Family disputes differ from other legal relationships in that they relate to almost every one of us. A family dispute is not only about legal issues, it is usually about values and morals. No matter the issue to be considered: divorce, signing a prenuptial agreement, division of property in marriage or after divorce, determining the order of communication with children, collecting alimony. In addition to providing legal services, a family lawyer should also be a psychologist, because any family dispute is not the emotions and experiences of the client. A family lawyer NSW should be understood as a lawyer who is well versed in family law, has the right to practice law and has considerable experience in the category of family cases.
