Divorce and Separation
In Australia, the system of Family Law for the dissolution of a marriage or divorce is a “no fault” system, meaning neither spouse needs to prove “fault” or marital misconduct on the part of the other.
Before a divorce is granted, several factors must be taken into consideration so that there will be no complications before and after this difficult time. In divorce proceedings, the two grounds to demonstrate to the Court are:
1. Irretrievable breakdown of marriage with no prospects of reconciliation; and
2. The parties have separated for a period of at least 12 months.
Our divorce lawyers have helped many satisfied clients and have made the relationship breakdown as painless as possible.
It is important that you retain an experienced divorce lawyer who will ensure that the whole process will finish as quickly as possible while giving you the best outcome that can be expected when the divorce hearing is heard before the Family Court or the Federal Circuit Court.
Property and Financial Disputes
Financial and property settlements can be difficult after a couple separates. However, it’s best to address the division of property as early as possible.
Our commitment is to make sure that you don’t get short changed in the family law dispute. We also ensure that you understand what is happening every step of the way.
Parenting and Children
Most parents want the best for their children. When a couple with children separates, the Family Court may approve an agreement between the parents and formalise it as Consent Orders. Alternatively, the parents can choose to jointly create a parenting arrangement for child support and child custody informally.
An experienced family lawyer can help you create a parenting agreement. We will help you dot your “I”s and cross your “T”s. We ensure that all areas are covered so that the Court won’t have a difficult time approving the alternative plan.

Unlike other traditional Family Law firms, we don’t require you to pay for short phone calls, faxes, printing, postage and the like. We’ve created our billing system to fit exactly to the matter being handled. For further flexibility, we’ve designed various billing models such as:
– Event billing
– Time interval billing
– Fixed-rate fees
When applying for spousal maintenance, there are a lot of questions that need to be answered. Questions such as: are you eligible for spousal maintenance? Are you within the time-frame required for filing? What is the application process? And of course, how much will I gain from this application?

Surrogacy is one of the most complex areas in family law. Before you enter into any surrogacy arrangement, it’s critical that you obtain legal advice and fully understand your obligations and rights.

Not all administrative assessments by the Child Support Agency (CSA) are appropriate to the circumstances of the families being assessed. If you think yours is inappropriate, you may need to take further steps to resolve the issue.
The family solicitors at Unified Lawyers can help you lodge an objection with the CSA and request that the CSA conduct a review of the assessment.
Consent Orders and Financial Agreements
There are different types of financial agreements (also known as binding financial agreements or consent orders) when it comes to family law. It is important for you to fully understand their effects before you enter into any financial agreement or consent orders.
Our family lawyers can offer you advice on the financial agreement, which best suits your circumstances.
