Family law has changed dramatically in recent times. As a result, at Mediations Australia, our Perth Family Lawyers are early-resolution focussed.

We also offer assistance in the field of restraining orders, which are frequently required in Family Court matters. We provide our clients with experienced advice and representation in restraining order disputes, as well as in all other aspects of family law.

Invariably when someone needs the services of a family lawyer, they are experiencing a crisis in their lives. It has been suggested that, after the loss of a family member, changes to the family structure, such as separation or divorce, are the second most stressful event in one’s life. When it comes to dealing with family law concerns, we at Perth Family Lawyers are constantly mindful of the fact that it can be highly stressful for all concerned. You require space to consider your options, as well as sound guidance that is not influenced by your emotions. Naturally, it is critical that strategies be developed in such a way that the greatest possible outcome for you is achieved at the lowest possible cost and in the shortest period of time.
Our Perth Divorce Lawyers
At Mediations Australia, our network of Perth Divorce Lawyers has a wealth of expertise dealing with all family law matters. We can assist you in obtaining a divorce or, in opposing a divorce application. It is vital to remember that you may only file for divorce if you have been separated from your former spouse for a period of at least twelve months. The Court believes that this duration of separation is proof of the marriage’s irretrievable breakdown.
You should also be aware that after a Divorce Order is obtained, time restrictions apply to you in order to finalise your property settlement, making it crucial that you get particular guidance from our Perth Divorce Lawyers about your circumstances as soon as possible.
At Mediations Australia, we have a team of lawyers that are experienced in dealing with parental issues. As a result of our legislation, there is a presumption that it is in a child’s best interests to have both parents participating in their life to the greatest extent feasible consistent with the child’s best interests.
We provide practical and pragmatic advice that is customised to your individual circumstances in order to keep legal fees to a minimum.
The counsel of a lawyer in relation to your property settlement is crucial. You must get expert legal counsel in relation to your individual circumstances in order to ensure that you receive a fair and equitable property settlement in your situation. Our Perth Family Lawyers have extensive expertise in complicated property settlement disputes, including child support arrangements, complex company, and trust structures, and spousal maintenance concerns. Furthermore, our lawyers are objective, pragmatic, and solution-oriented, which allows them to assist you in obtaining the most favourable property settlement possible in the most cost-effective and quick manner.
The fact is that after a divorce, your life is placed on hold, and the process of resolving your divorce with your former spouse may be stressful and emotionally demanding. Our family lawyers understand this and provide you with personalised personal guidance to assist you in moving forwards with your life.
Child support issues may be extremely complicated but be assured that our team of Perth Family Lawyers have significant expertise in child-support matters. We have represented our clients in various settings, including the Child Support Agency, the Administrative Appeals Tribunal, and the Family Court, and we have been successful in doing so. Child Support laws are often very complicated, to say the least, so let one of our family lawyers help you cut through the red tape and clear up any confusion you may be experiencing with the system.
At Mediations Australia, our Perth Family Lawyers have received extensive training in the area of violence restraining orders. It may be difficult to determine whether you should seek a Family Violence Restraining Order (FVRO) or a Violence Restraining Order (VRO) under the current legislation (VRO). Physical attacks are not the only type of family violence that may occur. Family violence is defined as any behaviour that coerces or controls another family member, or that leads them to be scared of another family member. Physical, verbal, financial, emotional, and psychic abuse are all examples of domestic violence.
When it comes to explaining the process in clear and understandable terms, and advising you on the most appropriate path forwards for your situation, our solicitors at Perth Family Lawyers have extensive experience, including representing you in all relevant courts and guiding you through the Court system.
What is Legally Defined as Separation?
When you or your partner or spouse decide to leave the relationship, this is known as separation. You and your partner do not have to agree to end the relationship; instead, one member to the partnership might make the choice to end the connection. If you are contemplating or have already split from your partner, you should call Perth Family Lawyers immediately to for legal advice tailored to your unique circumstances.
You and your spouse may choose to continue living under the same roof following your separation, provided that doing so is safe and acceptable. Prior to abandoning the family home, we urge that you obtain legal counsel from Perth Family Lawyers, as this choice might have a substantial influence on your property settlement entitlements.
When Can I Get Divorced?
You must have been separated from your spouse for a minimum of 12 months before you may file for divorce. You may be needed to produce an Affidavit to support your claim that you split from your spouse if there is any debate as to the date of your separation. A Divorce Application will not be approved by the Family Court if it is filed before you have been separated for 12 months. If you and your spouse have lived under the same roof for a length of time throughout your separation, the Court may need further proof. Consult with one of our divorce lawyers at Perth Family Lawyers for assistance in completing your divorce.
What is a De Facto Relationship?
When two individuals live together in a true domestic setting, they are said to be in a de facto relationship. In most cases, you must have lived together for at least two years before the Family Court will recognise your connection as a de facto relationship; nevertheless, there are certain exceptions to this rule. Even if one of the individuals is officially married to someone else or is in another de facto relationship, a de facto relationship might still exist between them. In the event that you are confused as to whether you are currently in or have been in a de facto relationship, you should get legal assistance from Perth Family Lawyers immediately.
When Can I Get a Property Settlement?
Property settlement issues are not addressed throughout the divorce process. If you intend to or are required to complete a property settlement, you must make an application for property settlement within 12 months of the date of your divorce or within 2 years of the date of separation of your marriage or de facto relationship, whichever is later. These deadlines are essential, and failing to meet them may result in your position being compromised. Understand your responsibilities in order to maintain your best position.
