The statistic isn’t a new one. Baby Boomers make up 25% of the nation’s population and yet control approximately 50% of private wealth.

When you make the decision to separate from your partner, the last thing that you want to have to worry about is money. Unfortunately for many individuals the time surrounding separation can cause significant financial stress, particularly when one party to the relationship has traditionally taken on the role of parent and homemaker whilst the […]
As Family Lawyers, it’s not uncommon for us to meet with clients who earn a lot less than their former partner. Often one party has sacrificed their career in order to raise a family and as a result their capacity to earn a higher income has been limited. The Family Law Act recognises that this […]
When deciding who is the best person to represent you and put your families best interests first you can’t go past Linsey
“When deciding who is the best person to represent you and put your families best interests first you can’t go past Linsey Wilson at Robert Legal Adamstown. From the day we walked in her office we knew we had the most professional lawyer to guide and direct us to a successful outcome. Thank you Linsey.”
With great rewards and a great outcome in our case we thank her from the bottom of our hearts.
“Hi everyone I’d just like to say a big big big thank u to Linsey Wilson. Linsey took over our case and her services and knowldedge that she bought to the case was hands down the best in the business. I couldn’t fault any of her advice and the way she works. With great rewards and a great outcome in our case we thank her from the bottom of our hearts. If anyone has any troubles in family matters I highly recommend u give her a call. Once again thank u to u and ur team for all your great efforts.”
Linsey’s youth belies her strong organisational skills, eye for detail, steadiness, sensitivity to my mental health issues and overall capacity for support and understanding of my situation.
“Nobody wants to find themselves going through a legal ‘battle’, post separation. It’s draining, painful, lengthy, ridiculously expensive and to be avoided if at all possible. However, my super capable solicitor, Linsey Wilson, at Roberts Legal, helped guide me through about nine months of negotiation and some sometimes shocking behaviour from my ex and her lawyer.
Linsey’s youth belies her strong organisational skills, eye for detail, steadiness, sensitivity to my mental health issues and overall capacity for support and understanding of my situation. She wasn’t fixated on going to court at all costs and helped guide me to a sensible solution, reached after just one day in front of the Newcastle family court registrar. That is what you pay for, in my opinion, and Roberts Legal got me through a difficult financial settlement and subsequent agreement over parenting orders with guile, intelligence and not a little kindness. Linsey helped me settle before the costs (financial and emotional) got even greater, so I’ll always be grateful for that. As will my two young daughters, with whom I can now concentrate on having happy times, 50% of the time.”
I have been dealing with Roberts Legal for a few months now and I could not be happier with the way they conduct business and the service they provide.
“I have been dealing with Roberts Legal (Adamstown) for a few months now and I could not be happier with the way they conduct business and the service they provide. I have had dealings with Clare McAteer and Linsey Wilson and I must say that they are both amazing women and are fantastic in the jobs they do. Considering the matter that I have enlisted their services, they have never made feel like I was just another case number. Instead I am a person and I matter. There is no limit to the care they show for their clients and to get an email out of business hours to me just shows that they care, just because the lights are turned off in the office doesn’t mean they stop thinking about you! I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Roberts Legal. Keep up the great work xx.”
I am so happy with how this is going and with your help and advice I can finally see movement towards a positive outcome
I would like to express my gratitude to you and Clare for everything you both have done over the last few months. Honestly, I am so happy with how this is going and with your help and advice I can finally see movement towards a positive outcome from this nightmarish situation I’ve been living for the last three years.
