When it comes to divorce, you need to get the right advice and representation. Save U Legal family lawyers in Burleigh Heads have experience in all aspects of separation and divorce for married or de-facto couples.

Do I need a divorce?

The thing about divorce is that people tend to use the word widely when expressing a relationship breakdown. So some people mean the actual divorce  – that is the official decree as made by court that the legitimate marriage is over. Others use it as an all-encompassing phrase meaning the separation of the couple which involves not only the official divorce but also arrangements around what happens with the children and the split up of the assets and properties of the husband / wife partners or same sex couple.

Anytime you’re talking to a law firm you should make sure that they know exactly what you are wanting to achieve. The three primary areas in relation to family law are children’s matters; property settlements; and the official divorce. Often, people get confused around what they actually need in family law and believe that a property settlement refers to the buying or selling of a house. When family lawyers talk about a property settlement we talk about the division of assets and liabilities between the parties i.e. husband and wife or de-facto partners which might not include that house but also usually takes into account things like dividing superannuation; bank accounts; vehicles and other assets as well as debts.

Then there are those clients who know exactly what they want – a divorce. Usually they are so angry or upset that this is more important for them than anything else. Two points to note.

1. You cant get a divorce until you have been separated for 12 months.

2. You should be aware that AFTER the divorce you only have 12 months to file an application to a court to conduct a property settlement. The Law places a time limit.

It is always our advice to deal with the property settlement first – THEN get the divorce. That way you don’t run into any issues of running out of time.
