Family Law

Marriage breakdown is a stressful time. Breakdown of marriage enabling an application for divorce to be filed is established by separation for one year. Separation may be established by living separately and apart in different residences or under the one roof.

An application for property and financial settlement must be made within one year of a divorce order being made, and if no divorce order has been made, at any other time. The factors which affect your entitlement in an application of this nature are set out in sections 75(2) and 79(4) of the Family Law Act. Every marriage is different and the financial and property pool of assets is rarely the same. Your entitlement will be affected by the length of your marriage, number and age of children, time that children spend with each parent, lifestyle, income earning capacity, health and other factors.
