Assistance with family law issues
Sometimes it is necessary to make an application to a court to resolve the financial matters between you and your former partner. Those applications should only be made after all other endeavours, including Binding Financial Agreements, have been exhausted. It is important to remember that litigation can take time to conclude.
Binding Financial Agreements
Binding Financial Agreements can be signed before, during, or after the end of a relationship. Both married couples and people in a de facto relationship can enter into a Binding Financial Agreement. Binding Financial Agreement’s allow the relevant parties to determine what happens in relation to property settlements, spousal maintenance and even children’s matters.
A divorce legally ends the marriage between two people.
In order to apply for a divorce you and your partner must have lived separately and apart for a minimum of 12 months and there must be no reasonable chance on resuming that marriage.
Each party to a relationship has the right to feel safe and secure in that relationship. The law, through the Domestic and Family Violence Protection Act, recognises that right to safety. We are experienced in making and responding to Domestic Violence Order applications.
