Separating is a stressful, complicated experience for most people. There’s a lot to organise when separating from your partner from living arrangements to dividing finances, and interim parenting arrangements for your children.
Gaining Legal Advice
Whether you’re married, in a de facto or same sex relationship, it’s important to seek legal advice about the separation process.
Gaining advice before you separate can increase your options now and in the future and provide for a better outcome. Even if you are just thinking about separating, it’s worth having a chat with us to get the information you need to make informed decisions.
What many people don’t realise is the actions they take in the early days of separation, or shortly before separation, can set a precedent and impact them long-term. We can advise you on living and parenting arrangements, what to expect during separation, and how to make the process as smooth as possible. Early advice provides you with the most options and often a better outcome.
If you have already separated, we can advise you on your options. We can run mediation sessions, negotiate with the other party for a cost-effective separation and represent you in court, if required.
You may have collected information and had advice from family and friends, but everyone’s situation is different. The right legal advice can provide valuable information so you know your rights and entitlements and help you make decisions.
