“Our purpose is to comfort, support and solve problems for you and your family in your time of need.”
Seton Family Lawyers provides legal services to people with complex financial and parenting matters on the Central Coast and beyond. Our mission is to give you the security, certainty and independence to better your future.
We’re a qualified and experienced legal team who are passionate about providing advice to deliver the best outcomes for you and your family, no matter your situation.
We understand that there’s many considerations in a family law matter and we’re here to help inform and empower you at every step.
We offer three main areas of family legal services.
Protect your assets now and in the future. We can help with binding financial agreements (“prenups”), property settlements, and will planning as it relates to your family law matter.
What happens to your children when you separate from your partner? We can help you to navigate this process, and the legal system, to get the best outcome for your family.
Applying for divorce after separating from your spouse can be an emotional and stressful time. Our team is here to guide you and carry out the formal processes of bringing your marriage to an end – whether that be to enable you to re-marry or to formally close this chapter in your life.
Are you experiencing domestic abuse at home? Or, have you been charged with a domestic violence offence and don’t know where to turn? When a family law matter escalates, you need an experienced criminal lawyer on your side to protect and defend you and your family.
If you’ve been charged with a criminal offence – whether it involves your former partner, family member, or any other members of the public – we’re here to defend you. We will help by advising you of your rights, preparing you for court, and arguing your case to give you the best possible outcome.
If you get in trouble on the road and get charged with a traffic offence such as driving under the influence, or lose your licence, we will support you. When investigating your case, our team will leave no stone unturned and argue strongly on your behalf.
When going through the stress of a family breakdown, you may find yourself caught up in other legal challenges involving a criminal or traffic law matter. We can help.
Throughout the various stages of life, we offer services and support to provide you and your family peace of mind.
Estate planning can include making a will, power of attorney and appointment of enduring guardian. We can guide you through the process, giving you peace of mind and protecting your family from stressful legal disputes at an already difficult time in their life.
The loss of a loved one is a difficult and emotional time. We can help you through all legal processes, including acting for the executor and managing the application for the grant of probate. We can also help if there is no will in place, or if you need to dispute a will.
Solicitors who gain accreditation from The Law Society of NSW must pass rigorous testing in a difficult assessment regime. The small percentage of those who qualify are recognised as having demonstrated significant expertise in a particular area of law.
Accredited Specialists contribute to and encourage the continued development and improvement of the standards, quality and delivery of legal services, and promote the advancement of legal education, knowledge and skills in Australia.
Our experienced Central Coast legal team is led by Michael Seton who has been recognised by The Law Society of NSW as an expert in the field of family law since 2017. With our team on your side, you can be confident that you’re in safe hands.
