COVID -19 Update

For the safety of both clients and staff our office will practice social-distancing and will have no physical appointments in our Blackburn office for at least the next 14 days as a precautionary measure.

Operations will continue as normal within the office however we request all communication is via either email or phone if at all possible. 

If an appointment is necessary, we will have that appointment by telephone.

If a face to face appointment is needed to sign urgent documents, we will of course endeavour to facilitate that.

If your matter has an upcoming Court event such as a trial, hearing  or conciliation conference in the Family Court of Australia or the Federal Circuit Court of Australia the Court has issued a direction that all matters that can proceed by telephone or videoconference should proceed in that way.

There is also a likelihood that non-urgent parenting and property matters could be adjourned for an appropriate period.  We will notify clients once we receive any information about their individual matters.

Further information about the new arrangements can be found on the Court’s website: http://www.federalcircuitcourt.gov.au/wps/wcm/connect/fccweb/about/news/covid19-170320
