I was admitted to practice in 2000. I completed my law degree at Deakin University and won the Family Law Prize for outstanding performance in 1999.
I have practised family law throughout my legal career. Following my admission, I worked in a small suburban firm where I advised on a wide range of legal issues including family law, employment law, building & construction law, debt recovery, bankruptcy and insolvency law.
In 2009 I joined a larger suburban law firm to head their Family Law Department, having decided I wanted to focus my practice in that area. My life before the law was working in corporate and superannuation compliance – a background that has assisted me in understanding complex financial matters and superannuation issues that can arise in a family law context.
I have extensive experience in handling all types of matters involving complex children’s care arrangements and property issues. I have represented clients in interstate relocation cases and a recently reported change of residence matter. I am a member of the Family Law Section of the Law Institute of Victoria and the Family Law Council of Australia.
I regularly attend conferences to ensure I am abreast of recent developments in family law.
I believe in assisting my clients to negotiate and solve emotional and contentious issues quickly and effectively, using the court process as a last resort.CONTACT – BURRELL FAMILY LAW

Child custody in Cheltenham is determined based on the best interests of the child. The court will consider a variety of factors such as the child’s relationship with each parent, the child’s needs, and the parents’ ability to provide for and care for the child.
Both parents have the right to seek custody of their child, but the final decision will be made by the court.
Child support payments in Cheltenham are determined based on guidelines set by the UK government, which take into account factors such as the income of both parents, the number of children, and any special needs of the child.
Child support payments are typically paid by the non-custodial parent to the custodial parent to help cover the expenses of raising the child. It is highly recommended that you consult with a solicitor for more detailed information on child support guidelines and payments.
