COVID-19

Our COVID commitment to you

Where you have an appointment to meet with any lawyer or staff of FitzGerald and Browne and that lawyer or staff member develops symptoms, or is a close contact of people with symptoms, we will advise you in advance and make alternative arrangements for the meeting. These may include video conference, telephone or rescheduling the meeting.

Your COVID commitment to us

We require any person intending to visit our office to advise us by phone in advance if they develop symptoms, or are a close contact of people with symptoms, so that alternative arrangements can be made.

We’re on your side.   

When a relationship breaks down all parties have legal rights that need to be protected – adults and children alike. Often emotions are high and pressure-cooker situations can arise. Our approach is non-confrontational and collaborative where possible. We aim to help our clients to reach amicable agreements and settlements with minimum fuss or, if necessary, protective Court orders.

Protecting your rights and entitlements, decisions concerning children, child maintenance and spousal maintenance are areas you will need ethical legal advice you can trust.

Our family law team can assist with all aspects of family law matters including financial/property settlements, children’s matters, child support agreements and applications for family violence orders.

Our services are completely confidential and your safety and peace of mind are paramount.

If you are unsure of your rights or need to take action, contact us now.
