& Separation

when the unthinkable happens…

When you start a relationship and begin your journey together it is unlikely that you are thinking about divorce or how it might all fall apart. We don’t plan our relationships thinking this will do for now or the next 5 years. However, it’s essential to be prepared for unforeseen circumstances, which is why many couples consider consulting family lawyers to safeguard their interests in the long run. Our law firms, based on the Sunshine Coast and Brisbane are here to guide you.

Things to consider

If you are separated or contemplating separation, consulting family lawyers is important to understand the process and some of the terminology used in getting ‘a divorce.’

How your property will be divided?

If you have children, what will the arrangements will be for your children?

What income might you need to receive to meet your expenses?

What support will you need for the children living with you?
