Merry Christmas!

Season’s greetings from all of us here at Page Provan Family & Fertility Lawyers!


G’day, I’m Stephen Page from Page Provan Family and Fertility Lawyers, and I just want to say from the whole of my firm, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year. I hope that 2022 for you has been a safe year and a healthy year.

Speaking for myself and other members of our team, this has been such a challenging year health wise with COVID and other bugs. I hope that 2023 is similarly a safe and happy time for you and that over Christmas you’re able to have a break, enjoy family, and just have some downtime, appreciate life, and enjoy the time.

Our business is going to be closed between, closed the business on Thursday the 22nd and back on the 3rd of January. So we only have a short break, we will be here at the beginning of the new year to help our clients right through January.

But like everyone else, we just like to have that short break over Christmas so that we can recharge our batteries, spend time with family and friends.

Thank you.

There can be a keen sense of betrayal when things don’t… Read More »Planning to resolve: ADR in ART
