Separation, know what you are entitled to

Even without being married, a de facto relationship is still considered a valid union in the eyes of the law. So, separating assets, property and child custody can be quite tricky and complex. Our family lawyers can help you work out what you are entitled to and where to go next.

Divorce lawyers can get the process started

First and foremost, the law wants a couple to exhaust all avenues before reaching the stage of divorce, so there are a few conditions that need to be satisfied before you can apply for your divorce.

To start the process, you must be separated for a minimum of 12 months if the divorce is the be granted.

In the cases of marriages of under two years there are a few more conditions that apply;

You must either attend counselling in the hope of a reconciliation, if this does not reunite the couple, the counsellor must state that the session was held and the outcome was negative.

Or, you need to apply to the court for permission to divorce.

Without a divorce lawyer to assist, the process can be quite confusing and complex, making a tough time even more difficult.
