Family Law

Family LAW

Our Family Law team understands that you need a family law lawyer who is a good listener, skillful advocate and strong negotiator. They are committed to helping you and your changing family circumstances in a timely and confidential manner.

Areas of Family Law


We regularly provide support to couples and individuals who are looking to strengthen their family through adoption.

Marriage Contracts and Cohabitation Agreements

Whether you are common-law, engaged, or looking to further secure your pre-existing marriage, we will support you in coming to a fair and reasonable agreement.  

Fertility Law

We have worked with intended parents, surrogates, and donors in every step of the surrogacy process.

Separation, Divorce, and Child Custody

Whether your separation/divorce is amicable or growing in hostility, it is important that you consult with a lawyer to ensure your interests, livelihood, and family are protected.

Alternative Dispute Resolution

We provide support in various routes that address the issues arising from your separation without going to Court.

Legal Coaching

Legal coaching puts you in the driver’s seat, and your lawyer’s voice in the GPS. Although it is a relatively new model for providing family law legal services, Cunningham Swan is proud to be a trailblazer!
