Going through divorce or separation is an emotionally taxing and difficult time. With a lot to consider, having support to navigate the confusion and uncertainty makes all the difference.
For a divorce to be granted, the Family Court must be satisfied that both parties have been separated for a period of at least 12 months before a divorce application is made. Appropriate arrangements must also be made for any children involved. Our experienced divorce and separation lawyers in Perth will guide you in ensuring all necessary steps are taken regarding the division of assets, maintenance, parenting, child support and other factors.
We will take time to explain the various systems and processes, including the options open to you and the most efficient way to achieve those. If the other party is being unreasonable or uncommunicative, we can help to resolve disputes in a cost-effective way through mediation, arbitration, or negotiation.
If you are concerned for your safety, your children’s safety, or both, we can work with the court to issue orders for your personal protection. The court can also issue injunctions restraining the other party from entering the home, school or workplace of you and your children.
It’s important to remember that every situation is different. Our team will develop a strategy that suits your personal needs, giving you clarity for the path ahead.
