We understand that each family law case is unique and needs to be treated as such, some are exceptionally large and complex, making them seem incredibly difficult.
At Hartley Healy we have a vast amount of experience dealing with the most complex family law situations; we have the best team available having had success working on larger, more complex cases.
There are various contributing factors that can make a case complex; some cases we have worked on are complex because of assets and corporate structures involved. Some clients have extremely large asset pools, often worth hundreds of millions of dollars incorporating assets and businesses spread across the world.
Other reasons for complexity include intricate corporate and trust structures which have been established over generations of family wealth. Other cases are complex because of the business structures and interests of third parties and creditors.
Other complex family law cases have different, more involved issues at stake. This can include interstate relocation cases or international family law matters, some that involve children, particularly those involving the Hague Convention, are intrinsically complex and require the skills of a specialist family lawyer.
With our extensive experience in complex family law cases, we provide dedication, professionalism and expert services to deliver the best outcome for your situation.
