Miranda Robertson


Miranda is the other of the two Directors of Pemberton Robertson Family Lawyers. She has worked exclusively in Family Law since 2011.

Working principally on child-related and financial matters arising as a result of separation, Miranda takes a pragmatic and sensible approach to the wide range of issues that her clients experience. It is a key part of Miranda’s practice to give legal advice that is honest and to the point whilst remaining empathetic and compassionate.

Miranda’s preference is to resolve her client’s disputes as quickly as possible via mediation and negotiation. If that is not possible, then she is experienced in representing clients in the Family Court of Western Australia.

Miranda’s experience in financial matters includes:

  • Preparing applications for consent orders where parties have been able to agree on the division of assets outside of Court
  • Dealing with matters that arise such as hidden assets, non-disclosure, spousal maintenance, preservation and/or urgent sale of assets, and third-party interests
  • Dealing with business structures involving multiple entities
  • Dealing with matters where one party has received, or is going to receive, a substantial inheritance;
  • Enforcement of financial obligations;
  • Acting for parties who require a case guardian due to incapacity.

Miranda also provides advice and representation in child-related matters. She has acted for clients in relation to matters such as:

  • Formulating parenting plans and consent orders for children whose parents have agreed on their care arrangements outside of Court
  • Ongoing care arrangements for children that require Court intervention, including where there are allegations of family violence and child abuse
  • Recovery applications
  • Interstate and international relocation of children
  • Acting for clients where there is a high level of dispute between the two parents
  • Matters involving significant mental health issues, including mental health problems suffered by children
  • Matters involving substance abuse issues affecting children.

Miranda is passionate about making a meaningful impact in the lives of clients and enjoys the human element of her job. Miranda’s goal is to help her clients move forward with their lives and guide them through the process to get there. Her reliability and supportive approach ensures that she provides the best outcome possible in every circumstances.
