COVID-19 : Contacting Cornelius Family Law

We have organised our office to ensure we continue to meet the ongoing needs of both current and new clients in circumstances where we are required to remain home.

As of January 2021, we are pleased to advise we have returned to our Queen St offices. If circumstances change due to Government requirements, please see as follows:


Our telephone details (03 9602 4600) remain the same as do our emails: 

Office hours remain Monday to Friday 9am -1pm and 2pm to 5pm.

The ongoing safety of both our staff and clients, in line with Government recommendations, means we will be working offsite as much as practicable, however, we have restructured to continue to meet all work requirements. Our office in Queen Street will remain closed until further notice. 

We request that any correspondence be via email or please telephone us to discuss in person your matter.

At this stage, the Courts are transitioning and only hearing matters in person with priority or are urgent. Please call to discuss with us if your matter requires Court action or is due in Court.

We thank you for your understanding. Please look after yourselves and others.
