Litigation

Sometimes the conflict involved in family law cases cannot be resolved using alternate dispute resolution approaches and Jones Mitchell's strong litigation experience is required.

To resolve conflict, some clients have no choice but to go to court.

Litigation is the process of resolving disputes through the court system. Family law disputes are resolved in either the Family Court of Australia or the Federal Circuit Court of Australia.

Jones Mitchell Lawyers does not routinely recommend litigation to clients as a first dispute resolution approach. Litigation can be extremely costly, time-consuming, and emotionally draining for the entire family.

However, Jones Mitchell Lawyers understands litigation is necessary to resolve some cases. When required, our expert litigators will match any law firm in Australia.

If you are required to go to court, our specialist family lawyers, litigators, and barristers will provide you with expert advice and, if appropriate, devise a litigation strategy that is realistic and best suited to your circumstances.

During the litigation process, Jones Mitchell Lawyers ensures clients are well informed of the court proceedings given that in some cases, the court process can take months or even years to reach a resolution.

No matter how complex your case becomes, Jones Mitchell’s family law specialists are equipped to help you through the process and minimise your stress where ever possible.
