Every family has a story, tell us yours…

Separation / Divorce

When a relationship breaks down, whether de-facto or marriage, family law issues arise and that is where we are able to help you.

Chomley Family Law

We believe the way your family law matter progresses is dependent upon the solicitor you see at the commencement of your matter.


Property Settlement

Time limits do apply for a property settlement. For married couples, an application must be made within 12 months after divorce.

What You Need to Know

The Court has recently made a decision that prior to seeking an alteration of property interest the court must first make a determination if it is just and equitable to proceed with dividing the assets between the parties.



Children’s matters are dealt with under the Family Law Act. When parties separate, whether married or de-facto relationship.

When Parties Separate

whether married or de-facto relationship, the Court will apply the Family Law Act.


Spousal Maintenance

Often if one party has an obligation to continue to financially support a former partner after separation.

The Obligation is Known As...

Spousal maintenance or if you are in America it is known as alimony and applies to both married and de-facto relationships.



In the changing dynamics of today’s society we see many blended families, where parties may form new relationships......

Under the Family Law Act a defacto relationship exists

If you and your former partner have been living together on a genuine domestic basis, also a defacto relationship can exist with same sex couples as well as people of opposite sex.


Grandparents Rights

We can assist grandparents in seeing their grandchildren.

The Family Law Act provides that any person that has a meaningful relationship can seek orders in relation to children.

I chose to contact “** law firm” after dealing with your colleague, Micaela Chomley during my property settlement with my ex-wife. I cannot speak highly enough of Micaela’s efforts, I’m sure you already realize what an asset she is to your company.
MF – Sunshine Coast
I would like to thank Micaela for her excellent work, kindness and understanding at a time when things were very stressful and anxious with my separation and property settlement.
I felt a sympathetic ear which is was what I needed.
I am happy that this situation was solved in a relatively quick period of time.
I would recommend Micaela to friends and family if legal services were required by them
SD - Sunshine Coast
I can’t recommend Micaela and her team more highly. They handled our matter with professionalism and care. Our financial matter was amicable, & we were initially reluctant to use solicitors for fear of being overcharged. Micaela’s team listened to my brief and were able to deliver a painless outcome all at a very reasonable price.

It was the hardest thing picking a Lawyer, after plenty of looking around we found the Chomley Family Law.

We were made to feel at ease from the first meeting all the way till the settlement was done.

A Big Big Thank you to Micaela you made it seem so simple. Your experience was the difference, any question you had the answer

Thank you Micaela and her team @ChomleyFamilyLaw when the trouble started for me, with my EX and her Team of Lawyers your knowledge was what made the difference and saved me the time and money going to court.

I will say I have moved on and am very happy, without you I couldn’t see how I was going to get through.
