Frequently Asked Questions

If you want to get a divorce, begin by seeking some independent legal advice from an experienced family law team. Our Gold Coast family lawyers will guide you through the entire process, from filing the application to finalising the divorce.

You’ll also need to consider any other family law matters you may need help with, including parenting arrangements (child custody), property settlements, and spousal maintenance. It’s crucial to ensure you understand your legal rights and responsibilities before making any decision that could impact your future.

Finalising a property settlement involves identifying and valuing all assets and liabilities, considering financial and non-financial contributions and looking at the future needs of both parties. It’s a complex area of family law, and there is no such thing as a ‘standard split’, as every relationship is different. When you work with a family law team, they’ll assist you in negotiating a fair property division, ensuring your interests are protected.

Agreements can be reached in a number of ways, including a decision between you and your ex-partner, mediation, negotiation between lawyers, and sometimes, if no other resolution can be reached, through a Federal Circuit and Family Court proceeding. When an agreement is reached, or if the court makes an order for a property split, this is usually formalised through consent orders or binding financial agreements. In family law property settlement cases where disputes arise, it’s best to seek legal advice as early as possible so you can start working towards a resolution.

Organising parenting arrangements involves creating a plan that outlines parental responsibility for the care, living arrangements and costs of raising your children after separation or divorce. The children’s best interests should always be paramount, and mediation and alternative dispute resolution methods can be utilised to reach amicable agreements.

Parenting arrangements can be further formalised through consent orders, which outline the legal agreements made by parents in a legally enforceable court order.

During your initial consultation, our family law team will discuss your situation in detail and provide confidential advice on your legal matters. We will assess your case, explain your legal rights, and outline your options for resolving family law disputes.

This meeting is an opportunity to understand the process and how we can help you achieve the best outcomes. Please bring along any relevant documents, and consider in advance how you would ideally like to resolve your matters with your ex-partner.

Out-of-court settlements can be achieved through various alternative dispute resolution methods, such as mediation or negotiation. Our family lawyers will help you explore these options to avoid lengthy and costly court proceedings. Mediation involves a neutral third party facilitating discussions between the parties involved to reach an amicable agreement.

You can completely finalise your separation or divorce by creating binding financial agreements and consent orders to formalise settlements without any need to go to court. We aim to help you resolve disputes efficiently while protecting your legal rights and interests.

We certainly do, yes. Our team provides compassionate support, advice, and legal representation where necessary for matters involving family violence. Our experienced team is adept at handling sensitive situations, providing guidance through court proceedings, and ensuring that all necessary measures are taken to protect our clients. Please get in touch today to learn more about how we can help.

The Family Law Act governs family law matters in Australia, including divorce, parenting matters, property settlements, and spousal maintenance. It provides the legal framework for resolving disputes related to family relationships and ensures the protection of parties’ rights.

Spousal maintenance is financial support provided to a spouse or de facto partner after separation, based on their needs and the other party’s capacity to pay. It ensures that the lower-earning party can maintain a reasonable standard of living.

Our family law services include assessing your eligibility for spousal maintenance and representing you in negotiations or court proceedings if necessary. We aim to secure fair and adequate financial support for our clients, considering various factors such as income, financial resources, and living expenses.

A binding financial agreement can help protect assets held by both married and de facto couples by clearly outlining the division of property and financial resources in the event of separation – before it arises. Some couples find this is a more proactive approach than the Family Law division of assets process after a relationship breakdown.

A BFA, or prenuptial agreement, can outline both parties’ wishes regarding parenting and property matters, including division of assets, child support and care arrangments for children.
