My goal is to minimise the distress and confusion experienced by separating couples when dealing with the Australian Family Law legal system and help you make the best choices for you and your family.

about us
Alina practiced Family Law for several years after completing a Bachelor of Commerce / Bachelor of Laws at Monash University in 2002. She volunteered at the Family Law Assistance Program run by Monash Oakleigh Legal Service. During her time as a solicitor she represented clients in a wide range of parenting and property disputes and it was then that she came to understand the true value of conciliation and negotiation in matters involving family breakdowns and children.   When she started her own family Alina moved away from the law to run the retail operations of a family business. However, she missed being able to help and support couples through the difficulties experienced during separation and divorce. Alina’s real passion lay in advocating for the best interests of children and she found Family Dispute Resolution offered her the opportunity to combine her knowledge of the law and her compassion for families and children whilst offering a genuine alternative to litigation.  As a qualified and registered Family Dispute Resolution Practitioner Alina’s goal is to inform, support and upskill her clients so that they are able to move through this difficult time smoothly and efficiently and for any children of the relationship to be protected from conflict so that they may adjust and thrive. Alina enjoys providing advice and strategies on post separation parenting. Alina is able to assist clients with mediating Parenting Plans, Property Settlements and Child Support Agreements. She also assists clients to formalise their agreements by way of Consent Orders filed with the Family Court.
