Separation & Divorce

If you're seeking advice from a family lawyer, it's likely that you are going through a challenging and stressful life event. If children are involved, its imperative that the matter is handled with extreme care and professionalism.

Separation & Divorce

There is no doubt that separation and divorce is one of the most challenging and life-changing experiences that a person is likely to ever encounter. Engaging a specialist lawyer who will ensure that you survive (and thrive) during the transition is of critical importance.

Our specialist team can provide you with advice and expertise about all aspects of life post-separation, including dignified divorce, how to co-parent effectively, minimise conflict and remain friends.

Binding Financial Agreements

A binding financial agreement (also known as a pre-nuptial or post-nuptial agreement) sets out the way some (or all) of a couple’s assets will be divided in the event that their relationship breaks down. It can also deal with the payment of spousal maintenance.

Although a binding financial agreement can be signed at any point during a relationship, it is preferable that the agreement is put in place before getting married or before the parties commence living together (if entering into a de facto relationship).

Whether you are thinking about getting married, commencing a de facto relationship or remaining in a de facto relationship for the foreseeable future, establishing an agreement while you are happy in your relationship is far more likely to result in a prenuptial or de facto financial agreement that is fair to both of you, which will ultimately save you time and money.

You’ve worked hard for your money and it’s important that, as you enter a serious relationship, you take steps to protect your assets.

It is important to consider a binding financial agreement when:

  • You have more money, property or assets than your partner at the beginning of your relationship;
  • You may, at a later stage, be entitled to an inheritance or large gift;
  • You operate a family business or investment that you need to preserve;
  • You want to ensure the terms of any property division are agreed upon to avoid a potential dispute in the event of a separation; or
  • You are forming a new relationship and you have children who need to be protected financially.
