Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Explore Family Law FAQs for informed insights on common questions and concerns.

To obtain a divorce in Australia, you must have been separated for at least 12 months and demonstrate that the marriage has irretrievably broken down. You can apply for a divorce through the Family Court or Federal Circuit Court.

Property division is based on a fair and equitable distribution of assets and liabilities accumulated during the marriage. The court considers various factors, including financial and non-financial contributions, future needs, and the welfare of any children.

Binding Financial Agreements (also known as prenuptial or postnuptial agreements) are legally binding contracts that couples can enter into before, during, or after marriage or de facto relationships. These agreements set out how assets and finances will be divided in the event of separation.

Child custody decisions are based on the best interests of the child. The court considers factors such as the child’s age, health, and relationship with each parent when determining custody arrangements.

Yes, grandparents can seek visitation rights under certain circumstances. If it is in the child’s best interests, the court may grant grandparents visitation rights.

A de facto relationship is a relationship between two people who are not legally married but live together as a couple on a genuine domestic basis. In some legal aspects, the rights of de facto partners are similar to those of married couples.

The length of the court process varies depending on the complexity of the case and the willingness of both parties to reach an agreement. Simple matters may be resolved relatively quickly, while more complex cases can take several months to years.

Yes, it is possible to change child custody arrangements, but it requires demonstrating a significant change in circumstances or the child’s best interests. Court approval is necessary for any modifications.

While it is not mandatory to have legal representation, it is highly advisable to seek the assistance of a Family Law lawyer. An experienced lawyer can provide expert advice, navigate complex legal processes, and advocate for your rights effectively.

In many cases, mediation is a mandatory step before going to court for Family Law matters. Mediation is encouraged as a way to resolve disputes amicably and efficiently, without the need for costly and time-consuming litigation.

Remember that these questions and answers are general in nature and may vary based on individual circumstances. It is always recommended to seek personalised legal advice from a qualified Family Law practitioner for specific situations.
