Divorce legal services
Are you considering a divorce or separation?
Divorce in Australia is a relatively simple process that you can complete yourself, as there is no requirement that one party be at fault.
For the court to grant a divorce, all that is required is:
That the parties had been validly married
The parties have been separated for at least 12 months
Appropriate arrangements have been made for the care of the children of the relationship (if there are any)
You are not even required to reach agreement as to how assets – for example, your house, cars, furniture, savings, superannuation, businesses etc – will be divided before obtaining a divorce.
However, an application for the allocation of assets is required to be made within 12 months of divorce and it’s important that you consult with a divorce lawyer well before the time limit for property settlement expires.
If you want help obtaining a divorce or property settlement, or you simply want legal advice prior to separating, get in contact with Greenhalgh Pickard today on (07) 5444 1022. Our family lawyers are dedicated to achieving you the best outcome and ensure full confidentiality.
