Divorce Requirements

Before you can get a divorce, you must be able to show the marriage has broken down with no chance of reconciliation. You must also show that you've been legally separated for at least 12 months.

Getting a divorce in NSW with a family lawyer

If you’re getting divorced, you’ll need an experienced family law specialist to make sure the process is as quick as possible, with the least cost and with the best result.

Same-Sex Divorce in Australia

On 9 December 2017, same-sex marriage became legal in Australia. This change in the law now means that same-sex married couples can legally divorce. If you and your same-sex spouse are divorcing, we can help. Our gay and lesbian divorce lawyers have extensive experience in family law issues involving same-sex relationships.

Property and financial issues

Working out how to split property and money can be one of the most challenging things about separation and divorce.

How We Can Help

  • Outlining the steps involved in resolving property and financial disputes during your free consultation.
  • Providing you with straightforward expert advice to protect you and your loved ones.
  • Representing you you during these tough times and ensuring you receive what you are entitled to.
  • Talking you through the entire process and keeping you updated throughout the entire journey.

De Facto Relationships and Property Rights

    De facto relationship rights under Australian family law are different from the rights of married couples. When you and your de facto partner separate, your property rights depend on the length of your relationship, whether you have any children together and other factors.

    Spousal Maintenance

    Spousal support is often a crucial issue for separating or divorcing couples, especially if there’s a big gap between incomes and the future earning abilities of the parties. If spousal maintenance is an issue in your separation or divorce, get help from the top family lawyers Sydney. That’s us.

    Property Settlement Mediations

    Mediation for property settlements can help you and your former partner work out how to divide your property without the expense of going to court. We’ll help you work out what’s right for your situation and we’ll do our best to make sure you get a great result.

Parenting and Children

Parenting issues are a big part of family law and negotiating arrangements for your children can be more stressful than any other aspect of the family legal system. We'll provide you with the best support and the right advice.

Consent Orders and Financial Agreements

Sometimes, separated couples can agree on how their children should divide their time. When this happens, it’s useful to ask a court to make orders, so the agreement becomes legally enforceable. There are also binding financial agreements. We’ll give you advice on the financial agreement which best suits you.

Child Support

The Child Support Agency usually assesses child support payments, but not all assessments are appropriate. If you think your assessment is unfair, we can help you sort it out.

Grandparent’s Rights

The rights of grandparents is an increasingly common family law issue, especially when grandparents are prevented from visiting grandchildren. We’ll help you sort out your grand parenting issues. Our family solicitors will answer all your questions, in simple and clear language.
