When children are involved in the break-down of a marriage or de facto relationship, the matter will naturally be sensitive and stressful for all involved. It is important that the parental responsibilities are shared in a manner which is in the best interests of the children.
The Court requires arrangements and provisions to be made for children following the breakdown of their parents’ relationship. This includes, but is not limited to, education, residence, and contact arrangement between both parties.
At FourLion Legal we can provide you with advice on issues such as custody and residency, parenting arrangements, relocation, restraining orders or child protection, and help to ensure the best outcome for your children.
Property and Financial Settlements
Following the breakdown of any marriage or de facto relationship, the negotiation and division of property and finances are crucial in determining what both parties will begin their future with.
Our firm is experienced in negotiating and representing you in protecting your most important relationships and obtaining the best possible outcome for you in the circumstances, regardless of the size and complexity of your assets. This may include the division of your real property, superannuation and other financial assets, as well assisting you in safeguarding your assets following the separation or divorce.
Divorce can be a difficult time in anyone’s life, presenting a number of emotional, financial and legal issues. An application for divorce could be relatively straightforward, however, has the potential to become a complex and painstaking process.
In order for the Court to grant a divorce, it must be satisfied that your relationship has irretrievably broken down and that you and your spouse have not lived together as husband and wife for at least 12 months. If financial circumstances dictate, it is possible for you to separate under the same roof. If you are unsure as to whether you satisfy the requisite criteria for a divorce we will be able to provide you with advice.
In addition, our firm is able to assist you in family mediation processes, as well as the smooth finalisation of divorce proceedings and the resolution of other matters which are interlinked with the divorce process, such as children, child support, spousal maintenance, and/or property/financial settlements.
Separation and De facto Relationships
If you are not legally married but are in a traditional or same-sex de facto relationship, we understand that the process of separation can be as distressing as that of a divorce, particularly where children and/or joint assets are involved.
Our team at FourLion Legal is experienced in handling matters in this area and are well aware of any time limits and/or spousal maintenance that may apply to your situation.
