Advice for married couples, de facto and same-sex partners who have separated or are thinking about separating.
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 From a Family Lawyer
Whether you’re married, in a de facto or same-sex relationship, it’s important to seek legal advice about the separation process from a specialist Melbourne family lawyer.
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.
We understand that separation is a very difficult and stressful time, which is why we work tirelessly to support you and ensure the best outcome.
