Frequently Asked Questions

Who gets what in a divorce settlement?
When it comes to divorce in Australia, various factors will be taken into consideration. This may include assets, income, liabilities and debts. Financial and non-financial contributions are also taken into account, for example the role and responsibility of a stay at home parent and those in employment.

This will be calculated or valued. And a settlement will be negotiated. Your lawyer will be able to provide accurate legal advice relating to your specific situation.
Do I need a lawyer to assist in the event of separation?
A relationship breakdown and subsequent separation is more often than not an emotionally challenging time. If a couple are not able to come to an agreement in relation to who will keep specific items, a legal expert can help.

A lawyer can assist in the division of assets and property and assist with family matters involving children. Mediation and other services may also prove helpful.
How is child custody decided?
Under Australian law, equal parental responsibility is encouraged if it is in the best interest of the child/children under the age of 18. Children have the right to have a meaningful relationship with both parents, providing the child is safe from harm.

Family law specialists can advise the best course of action to achieve the result you are hoping for.
