Frequently asked Family & Divorce questions

  • Divorce

    Making an Application for Divorce legally ends a marriage. Family lawyers can represent you to manage all legal matters associated with your divorce. You can file for Divorce after you have been separated from your spouse for 12 months or more and consider the marriage to have “broken down irretrievably”.

    We will assist you in making an application to the Federal Circuit Court of Australia  to obtain an order for Divorce. Under the law, divorce is a separate legal process from resolving parenting arrangements for children. Divorce is also separate from issues relating to the division of property. It is important to remember that after your divorce is made final, the parties have 12 months to commence proceedings to divide their property or to apply for spousal maintenance.

  • Children

    Perhaps the most difficult and complicated issue when a marriage or relationship is breaking down is considering arrangements for your children. The law requires that the best interests of the child is always the most important consideration when coming to parenting arrangements.

    Where a child will live, how often they spend time and communicate with each parent, the sharing of special events such as school holidays, birthdays and Christmas and how parents make decisions about the care of their children, are all issues of great importance which should be included in any agreement regarding children.

    Our family lawyers will help you resolve these issues as soon as possible and ensure you can follow the directions of the Courts and other service providers to decide what is in the best interests of the children. Selecting an experienced Family Law Practitioner at Lindbloms will benefit you as we aim for a timely resolution and a complete consideration of all issues surrounding your family. Most importantly, we aim to avoid unnecessary litigation wherever possible.

    With our legal expertise you will be able to re-establish your life while minimising the impact on your children. Properly handled, this will also assist you to maintain a respectful relationship with your former partner.

  • Property

    Property and financial settlements are often complex. The specialist skill and experience of your lawyer at Lindbloms will be invaluable to secure your financial future. Our lawyers are expert in analysing property settlement issues. We have worked in many cases which have involved complex financial arrangements including cases where there are trusts, companies, superannuation and asset valuation issues involved.

    We will give you clear and realistic advice about your entitlements and the likely outcome if a case is dealt with by the Court. Lindbloms Lawyers will represent your interests forcefully where the division of assets require determination and aim to finalise cases as early as possible.

  • Binding Financial Agreement

    Pre-nuptial Agreements or otherwise known as Binding Financial Agreements can avoid costly, stressful and lengthy litigation in the future. A Binding Financial Agreement can determine how some or all of your assets pool will be divided should your relationship breakdown. A Binding Financial Agreement provides certainty and confidence to parties moving forward in their relationship. The Court is not involved in this process as a Binding Financial Agreement is a private and confidential arrangement. We take great care when giving advice and when drafting a Binding Financial Agreement.

    Three principles are crucial:

    1. There must be a full and frank disclosure of the financial position of each person;
    2. The Agreement is to be put in writing
    3. Each person must be independently advised.
