How to get the work/life balance is a never-ending debate and, in my mind, there is no right or wrong answer! The majority of us are at least able to work and live in the same town, city or country and can return home to our families and loved ones after a day at work… however long that day may be!

However there are many people who work in a FIFO role and sadly, research has shown that the impact of FIFO on families is huge and can lead to feelings of loneliness, isolation, distrust and resentment. These are difficult issues for many couples to overcome but when you add children to the mix, the issues can often become too big to defeat.

As a result FIFO workers are faced with trying to deal with all of the normal issues arising from a separation, coupled with working away. They often have little access to their children and it can be difficult to find the time to see a lawyer or go to mediation.

If you are a FIFO worker experiencing issues following a separation, we can help. We understand how difficult it can be to find the time to address the legal issues, especially when you aren’t home often. 

Understandably, you would rather spend your home time with children, friends and family and we would not want to interfere with that. If you need, any assistance please get in touch and we will do our best to accommodate you, at a time that works for you

We understand that time is often tight, especially if you are working away and it makes that work/life balance incredibly hard to achieve.

Butlers offer flexible appointment times to suit you, and even have availability on a weekend. If you need any assistance to see your children, or to resolve a dispute over property, we have lawyers that can help navigate you through difficult times.
