Frequently Asked Questions:

    1. Do I need a Property Settlement?

We always recommend that our clients attempt to enter into a legally recognised property settlement, either in the form of a Binding Financial Agreement of Consent Orders, with their former spouse/partner.

    1. Why is a legally recognised Property Settlement important?

If the parties do not arrange a legally binding property settlement and make an informal arrangement, or no arrangement, then either party be able, at any time until the time limit for action expires (up to two years from date of separation for de facto relationships and up to one year from the date of the final decree of divorce) to apply to the Court for a property settlement.

    1. Can you help me get a legally recognised property settlement?

Yes. We can represent you and act as intermediaries to work with your former partner’s legal representatives if any.

    1. Do I need Parenting Orders?

It is not always necessary to have parenting orders. The parents are cooperating and working together to care for the children, they can continue to do so without needing the assistance of the Court. If either parent has concerns that the other parent may attempt to withhold the children, that parent should consider seeking Parenting Orders.

    1. Can you help me with arranging Parenting Orders?

Yes. Our team of Family Lawyers can help you to make parenting arrangements with your former spouse/partner for your children.

    1. Will you be able to assist on matters of child support?

Yes, and we can also provide assistance should you require the need to address matters of spousal maintenance.
