Kavanagh Family Lawyers, Perth

We understand that you’d prefer not to be dealing with lawyers. We also know that few things are more important to you than your relationship, children and property. Our focus is to give you direct, no-nonsense advice and to resolve your matter quickly with the minimum emotional and financial cost.

We have noticed a marked increase in requests for Binding Financial Agreements (“BFAs”). In many ways that is no surprise given the very uncertain times we are living in. BFAs provide you with the satisfaction of knowing how your assets and liabilities will be dealt with in the event of separation and having a BFA generally means no lawyers or court if you separate. However, BFAs are not for everyone.

If you are considering a BFA or would like to know more about your options, please contact us on 6557 5888 to arrange an initial appointment. We are offering both telephone and Skype appointments in light of the COVID-19 outbreak.
