Family Law Solicitors Dundas | Family Lawyer

If you live in Dundas and are dealing with separation, divorce, estate planning, or other issues relating to Family Law, it’s important to work with someone who can handle your case with care and compassion. At Mahony Family Lawyers, we are committed to resolving your matter sensitively, promptly and efficiently.

Our experienced team practice exclusively in the area of Family Law. We understand that these matters can be overwhelming, especially when legal intervention is required. That’s why we are dedicated to understanding your unique situation and working with you to find a solution.

Tailored legal support for Dundas families

Dundas is a family-friendly suburb located 30 kilometres northwest of the Sydney central business district. It is a central hub for residential housing, shopping, schools, and a light industrial area on its western side. This along with its convenient location and lively atmosphere has made it a popular choice for families to reside.

At Mahony Family Lawyers, we are committed to working with Dundas families both practically and professionally. We work closely with our clients to give them a deeper understanding of the process and their legal options.

We are also heavily involved in the Dundas community and recognise the importance of strong, local support networks. As a result, we can recommend services to help you build healthy connections outside of our office. Over the years we have formed strong relationships with clients and professionals from refuges, domestic violence clinics, healthcare centres, financial advisors and community services. We are proud to offer these services and to wholeheartedly support our Dundas clients and their community.

Kathryn Dunkley - family law solicitors Dundas

Kathryn Dunkley, Solicitor

Kathryn’s experience working closely alongside Judicial Officers has given her an appreciation of judicial decision-making and the different approaches taken by Judges within the Family Law system. Kathryn has expertise in drafting complex court orders and applying relevant case law to legal argument.

In her role as an Associate to a Judge of the Federal Circuit Court, Kathryn was exposed to the often destructive and at times, unreasonably litigious approach taken in some Family Law disputes. As a result of this, Kathryn is a practitioner who is focused on ensuring the timely, efficient and cost effective resolution of your legal dispute. Kathryn is able to advise clients not only on the merits of their case but also the available resolution pathways, such as, lawyer-assisted negotiations, private mediations, conciliations and arbitrations.

Kathryn can assist in a range of Family Law matters, including parenting applications (recovery order, location order and relocation applications), property settlement, spousal maintenance, preparation of Consent Orders and Parenting Plans.

What To Expect At Your First Appointment

One of our experienced solicitors will meet with you and work to understand the overview of your situation. We usually meet with our Dundas clients in our Parramatta office, but we are also able to meet with you over the phone or on SKYPE as well.

After we have a clear understanding of your family law issues, we will explain in easy to understand language what options you have so you can make the best decision going forward.
