Relationship Breakdown – Divorce & Separation

Divorce Lawyers Australia

De facto relationships are common in Australia. However, it is incorrectly assumed that de facto couples have no rights when the relationship has irretrievably broken-down.

When both married and de facto relationships break-down, it is important to formalise any property and parenting disputes, which includes amendments to estate and succession planning and any potential superannuation split.

Be clear on your priorities – and share them with your divorce lawyer

Knowledge and Experience

Children & Custody Disputes

In Australia, the welfare of the child is a paramount consideration in resolving parenting disputes.

There is an increased focus on the child having a meaningful relationship with both parents, where equal shared parental responsibility is encouraged, unless the child is exposed to risk and harm.

In the event a child is at risk of being exposed to physical and/or emotional abuse, our experienced team advise clients on the avenues available to them, including making an application to the court to seek urgent orders.
