Divorce in Queensland and Australia

What's the Difference between Separation and Divorce?

A divorce is the legal process of formally ending a marriage, whereas no legal process is required for a couple to be separated.

In order to get divorced, a couple who have been legally married must first be separated for a period of at least 12 months. During this period, the couple remains legally married.

The way a couple separates will be different in every situation, however, most commonly, a couple will live apart during their separation period. Though, this isn’t always the case. Some couples may remain living together throughout their separation period. This can make it more difficult to prove the separation, however, it may be the best option due to financial circumstances or parenting responsibilities.

After the separation period, you can apply for a divorce or you can stay legally married but separated. Our divorce lawyers can help you understand the implications of these decisions and any actions that may be required.

    These are fantastic lawyers. They managed the conveyancing of my aunt’s house in Sydney, while I’m in Perth. They made everything easy and responded within the hour to any queries. Do not hesitate to use them. They offer 5 star service!

    Purchasing a home is a stressful experience in its own right. However, having Dominic Nguyen from Unified lawyers handling the conveyancing for my property was the best decision i could make as a buyer. The legal advice was clear, concise and to the point, with Dominic keeping me informed throughout the entire process. Thanks Dominic for making it simple and stress free!

    We recently engaged Unified Lawyers to do some conveyancing work for us. We were extremely satisfied by the quality of service provided by Ernest Tung. His diligence, attention to detail and responsiveness were outstanding.

    The conveyancing team at Unified (Deama Merhi and Stephen Ooi) worked hard and made sure my home buying experience was smooth, stress-free and transparent. Deama is a highly competent and helpful legal professional. She truly cares about what you need and goes above and beyond to make sure the client receives all the information required to make the right decision. I would not hesitate to recommend Deama to anyone looking for a reliable, professional and honest service. You would be lucky to have her as your conveyancer.

  • Stephanie Kay

    Deama from Unified just completed the conveyancing on my first home purchase! Unified were amazing to deal with – prompt, professional and responsive – Deama took the time to listen to my questions, explain the process and give me pragmatic advice. I would recommend Unified to anyone looking for legal services!

  • Jane Au

    I was looking for conveyancing services and was pleasantly surprised at how easy it has been made for me from start to end. Dominic has been accommodating and patient throughout my first property purchase not to mention the amazing resilience to my stupid questions time and time again. I could not have asked for better service.

  • T Ho

    A huge thank you to Amira and the team for helping take the stress and complexities out of the conveyancing process, allowing for a smooth and efficient settlement. Would’ve been lost without your assistance in the matter.

  • D
    Dianne Hill

    My family and I have been going to Unified Lawyers for different legal services for years now and we have always had a lovely experience with everyone there. They have conducted many conveyancing matters for us, assisted with business disputes and recently assisted with a family law matter. Their family lawyers in particular are very patient and understanding. I will never hesitate to recommend Unified lawyers to any family or colleagues that require legal assistance.

  • E

    Engaged Unified for their conveyancing services. Amira did an exceptional job handling our complex property. Organised, efficient and very quick to respond. I highly recommend!

  • Michael McHugh

    Dominic and his team acted on a residential sale for us. It was not without its hiccups which was why I wanted a real solicitor acting and not a ‘conveyancing service’.
    As a client I was impressed with their service, focus on the outcome and competitive rates and as a lawyer, with their legal and negotiating expertise.
    I can highly recommend them.

Parenting and children’s matters in Brisbane and Queensland

Deciding and agreeing on parenting matters, such as child support and child custody, can be one of the most challenging parts of a divorce or separation.

At Unified Lawyers Brisbane, our child custody family lawyers can help you understand your obligations and responsibilities as a parent.

When it comes to your children, their best interests should be at the heart of any and every decision that is made, but often emotions can cloud these decisions. Our understanding family law team knows how sensitive parenting matters can be and can help you make an informed decision.

Child support arrangements

Child support payment arrangements can be informal or formal. Here are some of the child support options that the Australian government provides:


You and former partner can take care of your child support arrangement privately without Government intervention if you can agree on the circumstances. A financial agreement can be created to outline the terms of your child support arrangement.


The Government can conduct a child support assessment to assess the amount of child support you may need to pay or receive. This will involve you and your former spouse providing information about your financial situations, expenses relating to your children and your earnings.


A limited child support agreement can be made between you and your former spouse, based on the government assessment. One party may end the agreement after three or more years or it may be ended earlier if you both ask for it to finish.


Similar to a self-management child support arrangement, a binding child support agreement involves the parents agreeing the amount of child support without a government assessment, however paperwork relating to the agreement will need to be submitted to the Government.


A court may order child support or child management payments. This may happen in situations where an adult child (a child over the age of 18 years) is financially dependent because of disability.
