Kaye has practised in the Tasman/Nelson region for over 20 years accumulating vast experience and knowledge in a wide range of legal matters, including Relationship Property, Conveyancing and Senior Law.
This unique mix of legal experience means Kaye can assist clients with many legal matters rather than just a single area of law. For example, when a client has separated, Kaye can assist with resolving the division of property, the conveyancing associated with the division (including refinancing or the sale/purchase of property), and also drafting new wills.
Kaye’s specialist knowledge is in the field of family law, in particular Contracting Out Agreements (commonly referred to as Pre-Nuptial Agreements), and resolution of Relationship Property matters when parties separate.
From the outset of her career, Kaye has chosen not to engage in Court work, adopting the position that Court is the last resort for family matters where parties may have to continue to be involved with each other for many years after separation, due to shared business interests or children.
Building on that philosophy, Kaye explains the law and how it applies to a client’s particular situation in a very clear way, advocating and negotiating a fair, practical settlement for her clients.Read More about this Practice Area

Moving into a Retirement Village, regardless of the circumstances, is often a difficult transition.
Kaye has acted for numerous clients that have made the transition, explaining the legalities of their new living arrangement in an understanding, unrushed manner.
Kaye has assisted clients in the conveyancing for the sale of their home prior to moving to the Retirement Village, together with the Occupation Right Agreement and also completing Enduring Powers of Attorney and Wills. Being able to deal with just one person for the entire process instead of different people for different aspects of it, is helpful for a smoother, less stressful transition.Read More about this Practice Area
