I’ve separated what should I do?

The breakdown of a marriage or de facto relationship is usually one of the most unsettling and stressful times in a person’s life.

Navigating a separation can be very challenging. You will have lots of questions, be unsure of your position and you will want to understand your rights.

To help guide you and answer some of your initial questions, we have prepared a question and answer booklet I’ve separated what should I do? covering some of the most frequently asked questions we hear clients ask.

When will I need a lawyer?

You may feel daunted at the concept of meeting a family lawyer, however, having an initial consultation as soon as possible is empowering.  It will allow you to obtain the knowledge you need to make informed decisions about your life after separation.  

We recognise that every situation is unique.  It is our goal to work collaboratively with you to achieve the best outcome.  This involves understanding your situation, giving comprehensive advice and providing options as to how best to move forward.  

How we can help

We provide advice in relation to all aspects of family law including financial settlements and parenting issues.
