Divorce: How do you get started?

When is the best time to get advice from a Family Lawyer?
If you are thinking of leaving your partner, should you see a Lawyer now, or wait until you have left?
As with anything in life, it is always best to prepare beforehand. If you are considering separating, whether married or in a de facto relationship (at least 2 years of cohabitation), you can ask one of our caring and experienced Family Lawyers for legal advice first, so that you clearly know your rights, obligations, responsibilities, and entitlements at this difficult time.

There are many things that affect your obligations and entitlements after a relationship breakdown

You can ask our Divorce Lawyers how any of these questions affect you:

  • Whether you were married or in a de facto relationship?
  • When did you begin to cohabit?
  • If you have separated already, when did that occur?
  • Are there any children from the relationship? What are the current arrangements for their care?
  • How old are each of your children?
  • What assets and debts did you and your spouse each bring to the relationship?
  • What property do you and your spouse currently own. What is the approximate value of that property?
  • What superannuation do you and your spouse each have?

  • Do you have any corporate or trust structures?
  • What is your average income and your spouse’s average income?
