I just separated from my partner. I don’t know where to start. When should I seek legal advice?

It’s never pleasant whenever a relationship breaks down; however, having the knowledge of what should happen next may hopefully go a long away towards reaching an agreement with your partner about what should be done about the assets of the relationship or what the best interests of your children are

Hopefully this smoothens out the process and gets you in a position to move on with your life.

There is no such thing as an inappropriate time to seek legal advice in relation to your family law matter. We will talk to you about your rights, your entitlements, and your options in relation to all financial and parenting matters. We will also ask you lots of questions about your family and your financial history. We normally do this during your initial consultation with us.

We also ask you to bring the following documents with you:

  • Marriage Certificate
  • Drivers License/Passport
  • Bank Account Statements
  • Income tax returns
  • Payslips
  • Credit card statements
  • Superannuation statements
  • Council rates certificate for your properties
  • List of assets and liabilities
  • Birth certificates for your children

These documents are important for us to understand your situation and give you timely and accurate family law advice for your situation.
