Our comprehensive approach to your family matter puts the step of Divorce into the bigger context.
Divorce is the legal ending of your marriage; it is separate from a property settlement or arrangements for the children. We can assist obtain a divorce efficiently.
Unless registered as a civil union, de facto partners may bring certainty to the ending of their relationship by formally separating their financial interests.
We can guide you through this process with arrangements in or out of court.
Divorcing your spouse needs to take place 12 months after your relationship ‘ends’. The end may be before one of you moves out.
Once divorced, you must start Court proceedings or sign an agreement to settle your property rights within a further 12 months.
“Family law conflicts are very difficult to negotiate both personally and to the non-lawyer confronted by the confusing legal system. Having previously had a very bad experience, we felt supported and properly advised in our journey through the family law system and continue to be most grateful to Kate and to Nic for providing us with state of the art professional and personal advice.”
“When we bought our business in 2009, Nic Clayhills professionally guided us through the process to completion, there was no stone left unturned. Four years later and Nic’s due diligence is invaluable. When we engaged Clayhills Escobar we didn’t understand that we would be forming one of our most important business relationships. Nic, over the years, has successfully advised and represented us. I could not recommend Nic more highly.”
