FAMILY LAWYER SEPARATION AND DIVORCE
The breakdown of a marriage or de facto relationship is going to be tough. But it is often tougher trying to manage without one of our committed family lawyers. The only way to divorce is to file an application with the Federal Magistrates Court. Our family lawyers make sure your application is in the right form, appropriately signed and witnessed, with the right affidavits and certificates.
The divorce in Australia is an irretrievable breakdown of a marriage. The court is not interested in reasons; all you need to show is that you have lived apart for at least a year (separation) before filing for divorce.
Separation isn’t as straightforward as it seems – it’s possible to “live apart” under the roof of one house. We’ll make sure you meet all the requirements and have the right evidence of separation before filing for divorce.
There are many factors to be resolved in any relationship breakdown. We can advise you on property settlements, spousal maintenance, custody, contact and times with children and if necessary, represent you in the Family Court of Australia.
