Martelli McKegg's lawyers can help you in all areas related to New Zealand family and relationship law, including:

  • Advice on issues related to the Property (Relationships) Act 1976
  • Relationship Property agreements (matrimonial or de facto) agreements
  • Family property sharing agreements
  • Separation agreements
  • Divorce
  • Alternative dispute resolution, mediation and Court proceedings
  • Disputes over Wills

Martelli McKegg's lawyers provide personal, professional and practical advice in the sensitive area of relationship property law.

When entering or exiting a relationship, ask us for expert legal advice about structuring your personal, trust, business and company affairs. We can draft relationship property agreements for any stage of your relationship, from de facto to pre-nuptial to separation agreements.

If your relationship breaks down, we can work with you to create a 'road map' for dividing assets and restructuring and help you with child custody arrangements, financial maintenance and child support.

Our focus is on working amicably with all affected parties in any relationship matter. We aim to resolve relationship property disputes through negotiation and mediation first. If court proceedings become necessary, we have the court experience to advocate for you.
