Welcome! We specialise in Cairns Family Law matters – separation / divorce, financial & property settlements, arrangements for children & mediation.

..And we get results. This is because our mindset is to get your case done as quickly and affordably as possible. We are always looking for ways to finalise a matter without costly court proceedings.

If you’re looking for a Cairns Family Lawyer who actually understands the emotional and financial stress you will be under, but who has over 20 years of Family Law experience and knowledge, we are the Cairns Family Law Firm for you. Please don’t hesitate to contact us – we offer a free 15 minute initial appointment with Nardine Collier – an Accredited Family Law Specialist, where you can discuss your family law matter and get some guidance on what is involved and expected costs.

If you are located anywhere else in Australia, you are most welcome to contact us as we do offer ‘Lawyer Assisted’ Family Law – essentially where you are looking to do as much of your matter as possible yourself – but need some help.

Now, how can we best help you?

Family Law – Kids

Separation can be hard on children and on you as a Parent or caregiver. We know you want what is best for your children and will help you to put good arrangements in place for them. We handle Parenting Agreements and Consent Orders for Children, and can advise you on options such as Mediation.


Family Law – Separation / Divorce

Have you recently separated and are unsure what happens next? Looking to have your divorce arranged so you can move forward with your life? Perhaps you just need some guidance on what to do before you make any decisions? We can help.


Family Law – Property / Financial

If you’ve had a relationship breakdown or just need to organise a division of finances or assets, we can assist. We handle Property Settlements, Financial Settlements – including Superannuation splits or Consent Orders.



It’s all too easy to forget to have your Will prepared when you are busy with kids, work, study commitments and all things in between! It’s really important to have a Will in place, and we make it easy and affordable so you can feel peace of mind.



Mediation offers a way you and the other person in the dispute, can talk to each other in a structured environment, with a trained mediator helping you to discuss your issues.

Nardine and the team at Collier Family Law were a dream to work with. They assisted me through quite a trying time with absolute professionalism and I highly recommend their services.

Highly recommend Collier Family Law as value for money. Their willingness to advise & communicate on important issues, on occasion outside of normal hours, was greatly appreciated as was their personal touch. Thank You to all those involved for both my Family and recent Conveyancing work undertaken.

Chris - Cairns

I’ve been using Collier Family Law for almost 3 years now and wouldn’t go anywhere else. They are easy to deal with and very affordable. Against an extremely difficult other side when doing my Property Settlement Nardine kept working hard to get me the result I wanted. Thank you and I will be using Collier Family Law when needed in the future.
