Common Questions

Seeking legal advice for your particular situation can be a daunting, but often a necessary experience to safeguard your rights.

By seeking advice from a family law expert, you can gain an understanding about your rights, entitlements and obligations in relation to your family and property matters.

The Family Law Act allows couples to enter into financial agreements to finalise their property settlement.

This allows couples to opt out of the Court’s jurisdiction to deal with property and spousal maintenance and often allows more flexibility in the terms of the agreement.

All parties must get independent legal advice before entering into these agreements.

Parties who have separated can formalise an agreement by filing it with the Court. The agreement will then be made as a consent order.

This is usually a cost-effective way of resolving a matter. It also means that parties do not need to retain a solicitor if they don’t wish to. However, we would encourage all parties to obtain independent legal advice before entering into an agreement.
