During the early stages of a matter we communicate with clients about the level of support they require from our family lawyers. This may be initial advice, assistance with negotiations with a former partner, representation in Court proceedings, preparation of documents formalising a financial settlement or agreed parenting arrangements.
We apply for and respond to applications for divorce and advise clients of the legal consequences of divorce. Our family lawyers assist clients to make sole applications for divorce and joint applications for divorce. We assist clients with requirements for the service of documents and prepare documentation supporting an application for divorce, such as affidavits. We also appear on behalf of clients at Divorce Hearings.
