About Carter Law Solicitors

More about Carter Law Solicitors

As a former appointed member of the Law Society of South Australia’s ‘Children and the Law Committee’, Urmila has assisted in providing legal advice and recommendations to State Government Departments and bodies with respect to youth social justice issues and as to the care and protection systems in place for young children where matters of abuse and family violence are involved. She has also assisted in the publishing of educational papers concerning Family Law issues for various governing bodies in South Australia.

Urmila’s advice on property settlement matters has ranged from small asset pools to million dollar settlements, including advice as to spousal or child maintenance obligations. She is equipped to offer conveyancing services where needed and, in so doing, is able to support clients right through to the absolute finalisation of their property settlement matter.

Personal experience has equipped Urmila with the ability to truly understand the concerns and challenges that parties face at the time of separation. She is regarded for her ability to handle all Family Law disputes, with compassion and judiciousness. She is focused on working closely with her clients and empowering them to make their own decisions over the course of their matter.

Urmila’s emphasis is on conflict resolution by mediation, without recourse to litigation unless necessary. This is especially important in matters involving children where, if possible, preserving the ongoing parental relationship between parties is desirable. Urmila ensures all her matters are approached in a diligent and timely manner, with a focus on keeping costs to a minimum and providing value for legal fees paid.

I’m incredibly grateful to Urmila for her professionalism and legal support through a very long, traumatic and stressful time in my life. This high level of professionalism and affordability, along with her compassion, gave me a sense of calm that I could put my trust in Urmila and her team to work in my best interest. Urmila was always quick to respond to my questions and emails, and I always felt she was one step ahead. I appreciate all of the support I received from Urmila during this time, and highly recommend her to my family and friends.

Urmila made me feel very comfortable through our conversations and she gave me hope. She was the lawyer I wanted beside me to help me through such a difficult time, and I praise her efforts and understanding of the small things we may not.

I am thankful for her support and the effort she puts into helping me and hope she can continue to do that for many more people.


Urmila’s professional and caring persona made a difficult time much smoother than expected. She helped keep me calm and tackle the process logically and systematically, and always informed me of what I needed to do and when.

I can’t thank her enough for how comfortable she made me feel throughout the whole process. I won’t hesitate to recommend her and use her services again.
