Australian Practice of Requiring a Couple to Separate

Services

Criminal lawyers at Australianlegalspecialists.com, we perform all kinds of legal tasks, but the majority of our work is with family law.

Whether you are going through a divorce, legal separation, need help getting your share of the communal property, need and are requesting child support or spousal maintenance, or are in dispute about the custody of the children, our divorce lawyers Sydney can help.

Of particular interest to many couples is the quaint Australian practice of requiring a couple to separate for 12 months before obtaining a divorce.

While this is part of the law, both men and women can apply for financial support while they are still married but separated. Also, you can be living in the same household, and officially be determined to be separate.

Guiding you through the law, step by step is our official function as solicitors.

Some divorces are quite easy, as both parties just have realized they would be happier living alone and really mean their spouse no ill-well. While in other divorces, the opposing party would rather cut off their right arm than voluntarily give a dime to their soon-to-be ex-spouse.

We have dealt with both cases, and no matter how easy or how difficult the divorce may be, will assure the party to the divorce that in the end, the Australian Courts are pretty just and equitable.

At the same time, we often need to assist the aggrieved spouse of important things such as family assets.

Unfortunately, particularly in the case of women, they really have no idea of what the communal assets really are.

For example, their spouse may have kept separate banking accounts to operate their business, accounts to which their spouse might not have access too. In some cases, it’s not unusual for a spouse not even to know what’s in the communal checking account.

And homemakers, who have spent many years doing nothing but keeping the house and raising the children, may not realize that the courts take all those years of service into account.
