“Prevention is better than cure.”

Jo Walters06smlI have practised exclusively in family law for over 15 years and have been an LIV Accredited Specialist in Family Law since 2005.  I am also qualified as a collaborative family lawyer.

I have extensive experience in all areas of family law, including property settlements, parenting matters and child support.  However, having seen the havoc wreaked by family law litigation, I have a particular interest in and passion for “preventative family law” – helping people to consider the possibility of relationship breakdown before it actually happens, in order to protect family wealth and keep matters out of the Family Court.  

Whilst Binding Financial Agreements (“pre-nups”) may not be romantic, they are the only way to “divorce proof” a family business.  Couples who have gone through the process of negotiating an agreement that is fair and sustainable also find that they both sleep better at night.  

Working with other professionals in the Family Business Consultants Network, I can help you and your family members have those “difficult conversations” and make sure your affairs are arranged in a way that provides certainty and peace of mind for everyone in the family.
