Separation & Divorce

Here at Australia Lawyers, we have many years of experience in dealing with divorce. Our Dandenong Family Lawyers understand the most that enduring a divorce is never easy which is why we are here to help.

If you and your former partner are wanting a divorce, it is a requirement that you have been separated for a minimum of twelve months. In addition, if you and your former partner have been married for less than two years, you will need to obtain a counseling certificate before making an application for divorce. If you meet these requirements then you will be able to apply to the Federal Circuit Court for a divorce. To ensure the court process is as smooth sailing as possible, it is pivotal that you make arrangements for your children prior to attending court.

Property Settlements

If you and your partner have recently separated or are thinking about separating, there is no doubt you are thinking about the division of your property. To ensure this process is fair, it is always a good idea to seek professional legal advice.

Here at Australia Lawyers, our Dandenong Family Lawyers are committed to getting people back on track after a separation. To do so, our Dandenong Family Lawyers will guide you throughout the division of your assets as well as categorise items into contributions and future needs to determine entitlements. If you and your former partner share children, their needs will be prioritised by the court during the division and property settlement. With many years of experience, our Dandenong Family Lawyers are confident in our ability to provide you with the appropriate legal advice to receive the best outcome possible.

Parenting & Children's Disputes

Are you and your former partner currently in a dispute about parenting plans? If so, it is pivotal that you seek immediate legal advice from our Dandenong Family Lawyers.

Here at Australia Lawyers, our Dandenong Family Lawyers are equipped with the tools and experience to provide you with quality advice specific to your current situation. In addition, our Dandenong Family Lawyers will guide you throughout each and every step by negotiating on your behalf and ensuring you feel empowered until a resolution is reached.

Agreements & Orders

If you and your partner have recently separated and share children, it is important that you come to a parenting agreement. A parenting agreement considers all things relative to a child’s wellbeing and development such as living arrangments, time spent between each parent, schooling and much more.

To ensure your child is given the very best chance in life, it is pivotal that you seek professional legal advice from our Dandenong Family Lawyers. Our Dandenong Family Lawyers will provide you with our knowledge of the law and support in order to receive the best outcome possible with minimal stress.

Mediation

If you and your partner are in the process of separating, family law mediation might be for you. Family Law Mediation is a process involving a family dispute resolution (FDR) practitioner who is trained in mediation.

If you and your former partner wish to utilise mediation, the following process will occur. Firstly, FDR practitioner will engage yourself and your former partner in a discussion to communication your thoughts and concerns. From this, the FDR practitioner will then begin narrowing each of the issues down so that in the event your matter cannot be resolved through mediation, you have specific issues that can be discussed in court.

Depending on your comfortability around your former partner or your specific circumstance, there are a few ways that mediation can be conducted. These include face-to-face, phone call or shuttle mediation whereby you and your former partner will be in separate rooms.

Child Support

When a couple separate, there are many things that need to be sorted out, one of which is children. To ensure your child/ren are looked after and cared for after the separation, it is pivotal that you and your former partner contribute to child support.

Through child support, your children will be provided with support for for food, housing, clothes, schooling, sport and extracurricular activities. Child support can be arranged and three different ways including:

  1. Through a private agreement with the other parent
  2. Through a court order
  3. Through The Commonwealth Government’s Department of Human Services (DHS)

Regardless of your choice, our Dandenong Family Lawyers are here to support you and your child/ren in any way possible.
