Are you considering separation?

On the brink of divorce?

If you’re like most people who are separating, you want a fair financial settlement, you want to know about legal rights, about child support, where your children will live, and that they are OK. And most likely you want to stay out of court.

MELCA is a practice built on care and competence. We provide a complete personalised approach to separation...without court.

We will help you to discuss your finances, living arrangements for your children, living expenses and we will get you to legal sign off on your agreements. stress That is what we specialise in doing. Amicably.

A MELCA collaborative divorce is a win for everyone in the family. If you go to court or negotiate with lawyers ‘in the shadow of the court’, you are both aiming to win everything you can, and the other side of that coin is losing. In court your chances of winning are fifty percent. We think your family can do much better than that. We know your children can do much better than that. The MELCA Method keeps them in the centre and out of the middle.

MELCA covers all aspects of family law and separation, including pre-nuptial agreements, binding financial agreements, child support, child custody and superannuation and property division. Your settlement is written up in documents that have the same legal standing as agreements reached in any other negotiation or court process.

  • Lawyers and Hatemail

    3 May 2015

    Lawyers who work in collaborative practice are lucky. For many reasons. One reason is that the practice is founded on respect; respect between spouses, and between the professionals on the case. Collaborative practitioners don’t write nasty letters to each other, or to anyone.  We have come to see that kind of behaviour as being from the ancient past, […]
