  • Financial Agreements
    • Financial Agreements
    • A financial agreement is an agreement that provides how parties wish to divide their assets in the event of a separation. Financial agreements can be prepared before cohabitation (prenuptial agreement), during the relationship, or post-separation. Financial agreements can be utilised by married and de facto relationships.
    • An application can be filed for divorce 12 months after the date of separation. Divorce applications can be filed by one party, or filed with joint consent with the Court. We will provide you with advice, prepare the necessary documentation for filing with the Court and attend the hearing in the Court if required.

  • Property Settlements
    • Property Settlements
    • A property settlement is the finalisation of the division of property when the relationship has irretrievably broken down and the parties have separated. We will provide you with advice on your property entitlements in a separation, and give you an understanding of the process involved. We will then negotiate the proposed settlement with the opposing party’s lawyers and prepare settlement documentation when you are satisfied with the terms reached. A settlement can be finalised by way of a financial agreement or consent orders of the Court.
  • Parenting Agreements
    • Parenting Agreements
    • Parenting agreements are used to formalise the arrangements that parents have reached in regards to the children when the parties have separated, providing with whom the children will live and how much time they will spend with the other parent. Parenting arrangements can be finalised by way of an agreement that we prepare or by way of consent orders of the Court. We will provide you with all necessary advice to enable you to make an informed decision, with the primary consideration being what is in the best interests of the child.
  • Child Support and Spousal Maintenance
    • Child Support and Spousal Maintenance
    • Child support payments are financial contributions made by one parent to the other parent with whom the child is living. Spousal maintenance is when one party provides ongoing financial support to the former partner. We can provide advice about entitlements and the procedures involved for both child support and spousal maintenance.
  • Court Proceedings
    • Court Proceedings
    • When family law matters cannot be resolved without the intervention of the Court, we have the knowledge and experience necessary to represent your interests in all family law proceedings including mediation, and interim and final hearings.
