Domestic Violence Lawyers in Brisbane
Domestic Violence extends to a range of violent, abusive and intimidating behaviour carried out by one party of a domestic relationship against the other. It is a common misconception that domestic violence only exists where there is physical violence occurring. However, this is not correct, and domestic violence can include any of the following:
- Physical or sexual abuse;
- Verbal or emotional abuse;
- Financial abuse;
- Controlling or coercive behaviour;
- Threatening behaviour;
- Any other behaviour which controls or dominates a person, or causes them to fear for their safety or wellbeing or the safety and wellbeing of another person.
If you believe that you are experiencing any of the above behaviour, please consider seeking services to assist including support groups, police and legal advice.
A.L.F. Lawyers is prepared to assist in providing legal advice for any questions that you may have.
We work for you because we care
In Australia, Divorce is considered “no fault”. This means the Family Court Brisbane takes into account the reasons behind a marriage ending. It is important to note that Divorce only recognises the end of a marriage and does not deal with Property Settlement or Parenting matters.
An application for Divorce can still be made even if you live in the same house as your husband or wife. This is called “separated but living under one roof”. A further Affidavit is required to be lodged in these circumstances.
A.L.F. Lawyers are Family Lawyers in Brisbane who can assist in drafting the required Divorce Application and Affidavits.
A.L.F. Lawyers offer a fixed fee for your Divorce Application after our initial 15-minute consultation either face to face or over the telephone which is obligation free and offered to you for FREE.
