It's important to understand your legal rights and options If you're going through a separation or divorce.

Seeking legal advice early on can be crucial in achieving a favourable outcome before things become more complicated. Our team of experienced family lawyers are here to provide you with the support and guidance you need. So don't hesitate to book a consultation today to discuss your legal rights and options.
Our first step will be to gather all the necessary information about your assets and liabilities. This includes property, investments, superannuation, and debts. Once we have a clear picture of your financial situation, we can work with you to develop a strategy for dividing your assets in a way that is fair and reasonable. One important thing to keep in mind is that property settlement is not always a 50-50 split. The law requires a just and equitable division of assets, which may not always mean a straight down-the-middle split. We will work with you to ensure that your interests are protected and that you receive your fair share of the assets.
Our lawyers can also assist you in negotiating with your former partner to reach a settlement outside of court. This can be a less stressful and more cost-effective option than going to court. However, if court proceedings are necessary, we will provide you with the legal representation you need to achieve a fair outcome.
Spousal maintenance, also known as alimony or spousal support, is financial assistance contributed by one spouse to the other after separation or divorce. It’s intended to help the lower-earning spouse maintain their standard of living and meet their financial needs during a separation.
To determine whether you are entitled to spousal maintenance, we will consider a range of factors, such as the length of the relationship, each party's income, and their respective financial needs. If we determine that you are entitled to spousal maintenance, we’ll closely work with you to negotiate a fair and reasonable amount with your former partner to ensure that you are getting the amount you can afford.
It's important to note that spousal maintenance is not automatically granted in Australia and is awarded on a case-by-case basis, depending on the individual circumstances of each case. If your former partner refuses to provide financial support, we can assist you in seeking a court order to enforce your right to spousal maintenance.
Filing for Divorce
The process involves completing and filing an application with the Family Court, and serving a copy on your spouse. After a minimum of one year, you can apply for a divorce hearing.
We understand that divorce can be an emotional and challenging experience, and our goal is to help you navigate the process with confidence and peace of mind. Our lawyers can guide you through each step of the process and help you prepare the necessary documents.
If you're considering a divorce, we invite you to schedule a consultation with us. We'll take the time to understand your unique circumstances and develop a strategy tailored to your needs. Contact us today to learn more about how we can assist you in filing for divorce in Australia.
