Common Questions

It depends on how complex or difficult your current situation is. When it comes to divorce and family breakdowns, it certainly is possible to apply for divorce or custody and navigate your way through legal proceedings without a lawyer. However, where children are involved or many assets or property need to be distributed, it is best to seek a lawyer. In situations where violence, disagreements, or high emotions are involved, you should also seek a lawyer.

In family law matters, property is a broad term. Obviously, property extends to any homes owned, cars, furniture, those sorts of assets. The term is much broader though. Property may also be classed as shares, superannuation, inheritances, as well as assets owned prior to the marriage.

Following separation or divorce, one spouse may find that their income or assets fall short of accommodating their reasonable expenses. The Family Law Act states that a person has the responsibility to assist the spouse financially in these circumstances. The responsibility may continue for a considerable period of time following the separation or divorce.

A majority of family law disputes are solved without the court needing to make a decision. This is where both parties come to an agreement on their own, before either formalising the agreement in court. Some agreements are not formalised at all.

You and your spouse will need to separate for a minimum of 12 months before you can apply for a divorce. The Australian Family Court needs to reasonably believe there’s no likelihood you’ll rekindle your relationship. After applying for divorce, the average time period is from three to four months in Australia, however court-based timeframes do vary.

Not necessarily. The court determines property settlements on a case by case basis. These settlements involve a series of complex considerations, as an example, the person caring for the children for the majority of the time may be more entitled to the family home.
