Divorce and De Facto Relationships

If both parties agree to divorce, an application for divorce could be relatively straight forward and easy. However, if things get ugly and one party refuses to divorce, or further complications occur such as separation under the one roof, then additional documents will be required in order to convince the Court that a divorce should be granted. Lawyers at Fumens are experts in helping clients with preparing divorce applications and all other relevant court documents.

Property Settlement

For property settlements, the parties may come to an agreement as to how property is to be divided and enter into a binding financial agreement. Alternatively, the parties may also apply to the Court for property settlement orders. Such orders will be determined by several factors such as the duration of the relationship non-financial contributions, any child support to be provided, etc.

Parental Agreement

Whilst children are a significant part of the whole process of separation, we make sure that they are handled with sensitivity and protection. By always bearing in mind the best interests of children, we are determined to provide the best arrangements for every situation.
