If you live in the Hills District 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.
The Hills District, also known as The Hills Shire, is an area in Greater Western Sydney that spans from the busy Castle Hill all the way up to peaceful regions such as along the Hawkesbury River such as Wisemans Ferry and Lower Portland. The southern side is a highly residential area and is also home to a number of thriving business centres, schools and parklands.
At Mahony Family Lawyers, we are committed to working with Hills District 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 Hills District 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 Hills District clients and their community.
Our solicitors are experienced in all areas in Family Law and are able to work with you to support your unique case. We have extensive experience working with the Court and have an intricate knowledge of the legal processes involved. We are also experienced in mediation and negotiation and are committed to working towards the best outcome for Hills District families.
Some of the areas of Family Law we are able to assist with include:
Mahony Family Lawyers have helped hundreds of families in and around the Hills District achieve the best outcomes for their situations. We have worked across a range of situations – from amicable separations and settlements to difficult and challenging disputes. We are proud of the outcomes we’ve achieved for our clients.
As well as our practical experience, over many years our solicitors have been recognised for their expertise and invited to serve a number of government and community organisations, including Legal Aid New South Wales and the Department of Family and Community Services.
This means we have unique insights into how Family Law really works and can apply all the complex details of the law clearly to your case.
Our solicitors are also able to provide a strong network of support services for clients who need additional help. We have long-standing links with healthcare professionals, surveyors and valuers, financial advisers and community services in and around the Hills District.
As well as being open to enquiries from anyone in the Hills District region, our team also actively engages with community services and organisations who work with families, providing advice and assistance. Over the years we have formed strong relationships with clients and professionals from refuges, domestic violence clinics, government-funded family support services, youth assistance and health services. We are proud to help and to serve the area where we live and work.

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.
One of our experienced solicitors will meet with you and work to understand the overview of your situation. We usually meet with our Hills District 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.
Mahony Family Lawyers also provide a range of services outside ordinary legal work. We offer assistance to community members through “drop-in” advice clinics and also run seminars for community workers. This allows us to gain a deeper understanding of our community and form long-lasting connections with clients and professional organisations.
