Family Law Services in Perth WA

Our family law team is headed by our Associate Director, Alexandra Naoum working with our Director, Kevin de Souza, our Senior Associate Jason Wang and our support staff, Nicola Garz and Mariah Hill.

Alex has practiced for more than a decade in all aspects of family law from highly contentious child custody and parenting disputes, divorce hearings to property settlements involving straightforward to complex asset pools for division between the parties. She attends the Family Court regularly and represents her clients in all types of family law hearings. With her skills, passion and commitment, Alex has built a solid reputation as a reputable family lawyer within the legal profession in Perth.

Alex and her family law team bring a powerful blend of practical experience in family law combined with expertise in multiple areas of the law impacting a family matter.  This provides a holistic approach to managing your family law matter.

Family law is unique; the dispute involves the very core of our being – a break-up and dispute with a person we were previously in a loving relationship and with whom we shared our life and dreams and, often, the co-parent of our children.  In this context, Alex and her family law team understand that family law focuses on you, your life and your children’s future. With this single-minded focus, we aim to adhere to the following: –

  • We listen, and we keep listening actively to your issues, your concerns, your difficulties, and your children’s future well-being.
  • We reflect, and we constantly focus on your situation and the applicable family law so as to determine the most appropriate, practical, and cost-efficient strategy to progress your family law matter.
  • We work diligently and understand that time is of the essence. In children’s matters, time is crucial as young lives are being impacted, and in financial matters, parties wish to resolve their financial division quickly so that they can move on with their separate lives.
  • We respond promptly and professionally with skill, commitment, empathy and confidence to resolve your family law dispute in your best interest.

Being committed to resolving your family law matter in your best interest means we provide you with honest and practical advice. It also means being upfront about our professional fees and regularly reviewing the cost efficiency of the strategy in your family law matter.

Alex and the family law team can also assist you with preparation and attendance at mediation, Dispute Resolution Conferences (including Legal Aid Dispute Resolution) and in-court Conciliation Conferences, Pre-Trial Conferences or Mediation Style Conferences.

Family Law Testimonials

Hi Alex

Thanks for your timely and accurate advice. RHL was referred to me through a contact back in 2018.  I have been very happy with my contact with various people at RHL and I will continue to refer potential clients to RHL. When faced with the stress and emotion of a relationship break down and subsequent property matters, it’s important to have trust in the advice provided and the timeliness of that advice.

Your patience, perseverance, quick to help, advice, professionalism and much more has helped me to process this time of my life much easier.

With much appreciation,

Hi Alex,

It has definitely not been an easy couple of years, but I feel stronger, happier, and most of all a sense of hope and freedom as I start the next chapter of my life focusing on myself and my girls.

I appreciate so much your patience (you have bucket loads) and your empathy during this part of my life. You have a beautiful heart Alex and having a person who has listened and heard what I was saying made all the difference ❤

Take care Alex.

Kind Regards

Dear Kevin,

I just wanted to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to you and your team for assisting me with my case from the beginning to the very end in such a highly professional and supportive manner.  I had very good experiences with your firm – efficient, thorough, and candid. I was always kept up to date with the matter and provided with good quality service and advice all the way through. I honestly couldn’t have asked for more.

Despite the fact that I did not get the desired outcome that I had hoped for as the family court and other experts may have had other viewpoints, I know that your firm fought amazingly hard for me and I am still grateful for helping me obtain a very reasonable outcome in regards to my case.

I would not hesitate to either recommend your firm to anyone in need of legal assistance or engage with your firm again, should the need ever arise.
