The process of Separation and Divorce can be complex and emotional, especially when children are involved. Ending a relationship involves big changes which may mean adjustments to your expectations and lifestyle.  The changes  may also involve moving home and/or a significant change in financial circumstances.  Our helpful and professional Lawyers can guide you through the process to give you the best outcome possible.

We have successfully represented many Divorce and Separation cases over the years and below are some frequently asked questions and answers you may find helpful.

What is a Divorce?

A divorce by definition is the end of a legal marriage.

Filing for divorce.
  • You can file for divorce if you:
    •  have been separated for at least 12 months, and;
    • there is no reasonable prospect of the relationship be repaired.

Children’s Orders and Property Orders 
  • Parenting and Property Orders can be obtained before or following a divorce.

Divorce Parenting and Children

Parenting/ Children’s Issues
  • Parenting issues and applications can be brought at any time before or after your Divorce;
    • even after many years as circumstances change.

Property
  • Property proceedings must be commenced within 12 months of a divorce;
    • after 12 months you will require consent of both parties, or the courts permission;
  • Failure to begin this process could result in serious financial disadvantage;
  • The Date of Separation and the Date of Divorce are crucial dates in Family Law;
  • Property Proceedings should be brought promptly to protect your interest.

Divorce Property and Assets

Who Can apply for a Divorce?
  • Either party, husband or wife; you do not need your partners agreement;
  • Jointly if you both agree;
  • To apply for a divorce you must show:
    • You or your spouse are an Australian citizen or resident;
    • You are married;
    • You and your partner have been separated for a minimum of 12 months;
    • There appears to be no reasonable likelihood of the marriage being resumed.

Divorce Issues
  • Divorces are not as straight forward as many think.
  • The court requires additional information and often an appearance before a judge where:
    • Children are involved;
    • The parties have lived together after separation;
    • There have been several separations and reconciliations;
    • Any critical dates are at issue;
    • There is concern about the actual marriage, and;
    • Whether it is recognised in Australia.
