Miranda Robertson

Miranda works principally on child-related and financial matters arising as a result of separation, whether the relationship was a marriage or de facto. She has experience in financial matters ranging in complexity, including hidden assets or a failure by one party to disclose relevant personal and business assets and intervention by third parties with a financial interest in matrimonial property. Miranda is also able to provide advice in relation to children’s matters, and has acted for clients in relation to matters such as international relocation of children, attempted alientation of the children from one parent, and matters where there are allegations of mental health issues (including mental health problems suffered by the child) and substance abuse problems.

Miranda actively seeks to resolve matters via mediation or negotiation where possible. However,  she has extensive experience representing clients in the Family Court of Western Australia.

She works with clients to provide them with advice that ensures their expectations are both realistic and achievable.

Miranda was raised in New Zealand and moved to Perth in 2009 following the completion of her university studies.
