It’s important to understand the difference between a divorce, property settlement and Family Court matters concerning custody of children.
A divorce is the means of legally ending a marriage. A divorce can be applied for jointly or it can be applied for by either party individually.
We assist our clients with the completion of the Application for Divorce, serving the Application on your former spouse, and attending at the hearing of the Application if required.
Whether separated or divorced it’s often required to begin discussing a property settlement with your former partner.
This is often far more complicated then first thought. There are a number of factors that will effect each parties entitlement when entering into a property settlement.
At Friedlieb Fox McLeod we strongly encourage our clients to seek professional legal advise before entering into any agreement.
We assist our clients in negotiating a settlement with your former spouse by consent. However if this proves unlikely, we are able to represent you in Court proceedings to seek a settlement on your behalf.
