Family Law

Selvaggio Family Lawyers is committed to getting the best results for you. We offer a level of expertise and experience that is usually only found in much larger, city-based family law firms. Conveniently located in Norwest, Selvaggio Family Lawyers services the Hills District and the surrounding north-western Sydney region.

Our team is experienced in the Court process and trained in alternate dispute resolution. If you are in the process of separating you can be certain that we will look after your best interests. Selvaggio Family Lawyers’ personalised approach also means that you get excellent service tailored to your needs from both our lawyers and our team of friendly and efficient support staff who are dedicated to assisting you with the legal procedure after separation. By virtue of our reputation and expertise, our clients come from all areas of Sydney.

Whether you need advice, representation in court or a trained mediator, Selvaggio Family Lawyers can help you.

The Initial Appointment

When you decide to appoint a lawyer in a Family Law matter you need to find out exactly where you stand, what your options are, the best outcome in your case and the recommended choice of legal process

The first consultation with Selvaggio Lawyers is extremely important. For a very reasonable flat fee of $400.00 (plus GST) you will have an opportunity to run through your particular situation with an experienced family lawyer and be given comprehensive advice without obligation to proceed further.

Over a period of about 60 minutes, our lawyer will discuss your case with you in detail and then give you sound advice regarding your entitlements, your options, the most appropriate way forward and an estimate of legal costs. This allows you to make an informed decision at an early stage before problems arise. We also give you an estimate of all of your fees for the recommended process.

To make an appointment to see a member of our Family Law Team, email or call us directly on 02 9899 9677.

The Importance of Updating your Will On Separation

Whenever you have any changes to your personal circumstances, such as a marriage, separation or divorce or even the purchase of property, it is important that you change your Will and other legal documentation accordingly.

Failing to update your Will following a separation could place your assets at risk if you were to pass away unexpectedly, and your family and loved ones may potentially lose any inheritance that you wish them to have.

If our firm has acted for you in your family law matter, we will ensure that we prepare a new Will on your behalf free of charge. If, however, you are not separated, and you just need to obtain advice regarding making a new Will or if you wish to make a new Will because your circumstances have changed, we can help you with making your new Will including making mutual Wills for couples.

To find out how we can help you to protect your assets and ensure your wishes are taken into account in the event of your death. Please telephone Selvaggio Lawyers on 02 9899 9677, for more information on preparing or updating a Will or visit the Wills & Estates section of this site.

Paralegal & Administrative Support

Selvaggio Lawyers were invaluable in helping me through a difficult time, after unfairly being restricted from seeing my children. I didn’t know where to start. I was dealing with lots of issues at that time and overwhelming emotions. They walked me through the process and made it easy. They answered my questions, no matter how trivial, and took time out of their day to attend to my enquiries.


Selvaggio Lawyers were kind and caring through a very difficult time. They provided honest and upfront advice, without the drama.


We have been involved with Selvaggio Lawyers for approximately ten years, almost on a daily basis, due to the high volume of conveyancing work they carry out on our behalf. Selvaggio Lawyers' service has been second to none, with all work carried out in an highly efficient and prompt manner and our dealings with all staff have shown them to be professional and willing to 'go the extra mile' as our legal representatives.

Presida Constructions

I have worked with Gillian Leahy of Selvaggio Lawyers since January 2014 on the purchase, sale and assignment of more than 15 properties. The transactions have included several complex Option Deeds and Deeds of Assignment. Gillian’s dedication, professionalism and rapid turnaround of documents have many times made the difference between winning and losing a deal. I recommend Selvaggio Lawyers highly for any property-related matters.
