Areas of Practice - Family Law

Fiona Hoad joined Somerville Legal in 1997, after gaining experience as a judge's associate.

Fiona has specialised in family law for over 20 years, and is an Accredited Family Law Specialist. Fiona’s experience includes all areas of family law including de facto matters, property, parenting, spouse maintenance and relocation applications.

Fiona is aware of the emotional and financial fallout of family law matters and accordingly she provides clients with a sensible and realistic approach to the resolution of their matter.

Fiona’s commercial litigation experience has complemented her family law practice as it has provided her with essential knowledge and skills relevant to family law financial matters involving complicated trusts and corporate structures.

Fiona believes that the goal in family law cases is to achieve a reasonable result with the minimum of expense and anguish for the client. To achieve this, Fiona avoids the personal hostility  often adopted by less experienced solicitors, while taking strong action in court where necessary.

Fiona has been for several years a member of the Law Society Family Law Committee and is a member of the Family Law Section of the Law Council of Australia. She is also the President of the Northern Sydney Collaborative Law Group, and a member of Collaborative Practice (NSW).
