Our Perth Family Lawyer Will Help With
What Comes After Separation and Divorce
Perhaps one of the most difficult things you will experience in your lifetime is the decision to separate from your partner or spouse. At one point you thought that person would be by your side for the rest of your life. As time went on, it became increasingly clear that the person you love is not meant to be your life partner.
Separation and divorce are traumatic. When you’re going through times like these, you need someone on your side who understands the emotional difficulty you face, the anger you’re feeling, and the sadness you have to bare.
In addition to the emotional aspect of a divorce, there are many legal issues that you must address. What will happen with your finances? Who should move out? Who will take care of your kids? Will you pay or receive spousal support? With so many questions, confusion, and uncertainty, it is crucial that you have a Perth Divorce lawyer that you can trust working with you throughout your case.
Handling Separation Before, During, and After the Decision Is Made
There are no winners in a separation and divorce. Regardless of whether the decision to separate was amicable and agreeable, the process before, during, and after a separation is challenging.
Wayne Dawkins Lawyers is focused on helping you find the best resolution for your family. No matter where you are in the process—whether you’ve told your partner or spouse that you want to separate, are thinking about it, or have separated. You will need a little bit of help and we are here to work beside you as your guide.
- The separation. Whether you were the one to initiate the separation or the one that was told, it is normal to be confused about what to do. We will give you support and realistic advice on the next steps.
- The timing. The reality is that you cannot apply for a divorce until you have been separated for 12 months. However, during that year, and with experienced practical assistance, you can come to an agreement on what the future will look like for the family.
- The situation. No matter whether you were married or in a de facto relationship, we will help you reach a legal and fair resolution.
- The children. Your children are probably your main concern during this time. If necessary we can help you connect with a family counselor to provide support for you and your children.
Our goal is to help you come to a solution away from the Family Court. Unfortunately that is not always the case. Which is why we offer solutions for every situation, regardless of whether it is negotiated, collaborative or contested.
