CopperTree Family Law is based in Erina and provides family law services to clients on the Central Coast. Our legal expertise includes:



We are your local Central Coast divorce lawyer. A marriage separation or obtaining a “divorce” is a straightforward legal process. However, once a divorce order comes into effect, and you have not reached a financial settlement or property settlement, there will be a time limit on applying for a court-ordered outcome.

Parenting Arrangements

Although commonly referred to as ‘child custody’, this terminology is no longer used in legislation about parenting arrangements or disputes. Decisions about who cares for the child(ren), who they will live with and who makes the parenting decisions are determined according to the best interests of the child.


At CopperTree Family Law, we often hear the story of the partner who insisted everything would be fair; there would be no property dispute, and no lawyers needed to be involved. If you and your former partner can agree on the property settlement, that is undoubtedly the most cost-effective way forward.

Wills and Estates

CopperTree Family Law is your local Central Coast family lawyer. One of our specialties is the preparation of a Will. Although it’s not something we like to think about, it is essential to plan for the future distribution of your assets. If you die without a Will, the law decides who receives your money. However, this might not be in line with your wishes.
