Family Panel Information

Solicitors and Legal Executives apply for Family Law Accreditation Scheme membership by completing a detailed questionnaire that assesses their knowledge and experience in Family Law and related matters.

Every five years, practitioners must renew their membership under the re-accreditation process. Scheme members are expected to comply with the requirements of the Family Law Protocol.

The aims of the Family Law Protocol are to encourage a constructive and conciliatory approach to the resolution of family disputes, encourage the narrowing of the issues in dispute and the effective and timely resolution of disputes. We endeavour to minimise any risk to the parties and/or the children, and to alert the client to treat child safety as the primary concern. We have regard to the interests of the children and long-term family relationships and ensure that costs are not unreasonably incurred.

“I would have no hesitation in recommending Frank. He was able to help at a moments notice, guide through a legal process and achieve the desired result. He personally took charge of delivering legal documentation to ensure that the right result was achieved. Frank and his team work to the highest integrity and are always a pleasure to deal with.”
