Separation & Divorce
As trusted divorce and separation lawyers in Sydney we are often engaged to formalise the breakdown of a marriage, providing practical advice and solutions for each unique situation regarding separation and divorce. Family and divorce law are specialist areas that require experience and knowledge to settle matters respectfully – we guide you through your rights and obligations, negotiations and settlement, or can represent you in Court if proceedings are necessary.
SEPARATION & DIVORCE
You should note that a court will only grant a divorce if specific conditions are satisfied.
You will have grounds for divorce if your marriage has irretrievably broken down. This is considered to have occurred when you have lived separately and apart from your partner for more than 12 months and there is no reasonable likelihood of continuation of the marriage.
Our family law specialists can advise you in respect of preparing or opposing divorce applications, disputing dates of separation, proving or disputing claims of irretrievable breakdown of marriage, cohabitation after separation, nullity proceedings and your rights after separation.
DE FACTO SEPARATION
Applications for property settlement or spousal maintenance in de-facto or same sex relationships must be made within 2 years of the date of separation. Our family law experts can advise you in respect of the existence of a de-facto relationship and your rights upon separation including issues such as domestic violence, compensation, superannuation and wills and intestacy.
We have the experience, skills and knowledge to assist you with all matters of your legal separation or divorce. Contact us today for a free consultation.
