Divorce &
Separation

The breakdown of a marriage, or de facto relationship is an extremely trying time for all involved. The process of obtaining a divorce is separate to that of dealing with your property settlement, financial agreement, and children and parenting matters.

When you separate, determining the appropriate arrangements for your children can be difficult. However, any arrangements that are made must be in the best interests of your children, and be consistent with section 60cc of the Family Law Act for parents of a marital relationship, and section 66c of the Family Court Act for non-married parents. It can often become a conflict between two parents, who both believe that are acting with the children’s best interests at heart. Our Perth Family Lawyers aim to provide affordable legal representation in all parenting Family Court matters.
