Sarah Bevan Family Lawyers Crows Nest

Sarah Bevan Family Lawyers is a specialist family law firm located in Parramatta (and with offices at Crows Nest and Surry Hills). At Sarah Bevan Family Lawyers we only practise in family law, and we are extremely familiar with all relevant law and procedure. We work with you in an attempt to help you achieve your goals.

We know that you need to be and feel in control of your case, and that a large part of a successful outcome is that you are able to move on with your life with your dignity intact.

Our aim is to help you get through the difficult time in your life as smoothly as possible without adding to the pain. We feel great pride when we see our clients emerging from the process much happier and more at ease than when they started the process, often with a much more productive relationship with their former partner.

Our skill and experience means that we are able to handle your case efficiently and cost-effectively. We also invest heavily in ongoing staff training, not only for our lawyers but also for our support staff. So you can be confident we are always up to date with the ever-changing family law.

Most people prefer to avoid the stress and expense of court proceedings, and we place particular emphasis on helping you try to resolve your case with the minimum of acrimony. Most of our clients are able to reach agreements with our assistance through negotiation, mediation and other dispute resolution methods. If you need to be in court, you can be assured that our in depth knowledge of all court procedures and our strong advocacy will place you in the best possible position.

Many other firms may feel overwhelmed by the court process and will often suggest involving barristers earlier than is necessary, which means your costs will be inflated. However, all our lawyers place strong emphasis on their advocacy skills and will only suggest you go to the additional expense of a barrister when it really is appropriate.

We act for people in Sydney, all over NSW and Australia, and overseas in all aspects of family law including: 

  • Divorce
  • Property settlement
  • Children's issues
  • Pre-Nuptual Agreements (Pre-Nupts)
  • Binding Financial Agreements
  • Termination Agreements
  • Co-Habitation Agreements
  • Defacto relationships
  • Same Sex couples
  • Family Trusts
