Areas of Family Law

Separation & Divorce

Our experienced family lawyers will explain the legal requirements for separation. They can also assist you with the procedure of obtaining a divorce.

A divorce can be achieved without the need for legal representation. It may, however, be beneficial for you to speak with one of our expert family lawyers to assist with your application for divorce and finalise your settlement.

There are usually additional matters to deal with when experiencing a relationship breakdown, such as asset division and financial agreements, spousal maintenance matters, arrangements for children and child support.

Our goal is to avoid any unnecessary complications as well progress your matter in a timely and cost-effective way. We also endeavour to minimise the effect of a divorce on your life and your finances.

Yes you can.

Family court allows self-represented litigants. However, in the vast majority of cases, representing yourself is not advisable. There is usually a lot at stake in family court cases, be it a divorce settlement, child custody or a financial settlement.
