What We Do
We work with you to achieve the best possible outcome.
Separation & Divorce
We understand that the process of obtaining a divorce can be a traumatic event in your life. We are able to help our clients through this difficult time by handling this process with compassion and efficiency. You can rest assured that we are on your side.
Negotiating a divorce settlement following a separation can be a difficult process for married and de facto couples alike. When deciding on the property settlement, there are a number of factors to be considered including the length of the relationship, the financial contributions made by both parties, non- financial contributions, the parties’ individual incomes and potential to earn an income.
We assist our clients to finalise the living arrangements for their children, focusing always on the best interests of the children. We recognise the importance of children maintaining a relationship with both parents after a separation occurs, and we have the expertise to assist parents in reaching agreement about the parenting arrangements for their children.

Failure. Failure to communicate. Failure to thrive. Failure to launch. Fail to give way. Doomed to failure. Failed marriage. Let’s just hang our heads because it all sounds so black, doesn’t it? It’s not a word we usually want to hear, unless we’re hearing ‘the nuclear bomb has failed to reach your destination’! How[…]
Divorce is a fact of our society, but how do we put our children first in divorce? When divorce happens there are no winners and if we’re not careful, the losers are the children of divorce. Most would agree that we should put children first in divorce, but this is not how it usually plays[…]
For those who are newly divorced with children, understanding how to collect a child support payment can seem like an overly complex and confronting issue. It can be, but it’s also true that it doesn’t have to be. Some parents who pay child support pay it gladly and with whatever (legal) means necessary to help[…]
Sometimes it seems like the fight against domestic abuse is a losing one. The abuse seems so far reaching and ingrained. Domestic violence abuse includes sexual, physical, emotional and financial abuse from an intimate partner. The very people who are supposed to care for their partners are hurting them in ways we can’t imagine. Can[…]
Divorcing your spouse may mean a name change. What’s in a name? It probably depends on who you’re talking to and their experiences with that name. Shakespeare’s play, Romeo and Juliet, is about star-crossed lovers, not a divorcing couple. But names in this story are important. Let me refresh your memory a little. The Montagues[…]
When a divorce ultimatum is issued in a relationship it’s possible that your relationship has already gone through a lot of trauma and difficulty. A divorce ultimatum is usually preceded by behaviour, actions or comments that are unacceptable to a spouse. But is a divorce ultimatum the way to go? Is a divorce ultimatum the[…]
A recent change in legislation has highlighted divorce in Japan and how it differs to other countries. Each country has their own laws and cultures surrounding marriage and divorce and they don’t remain static. Japan is no exception. Changing laws, divorce parties and ‘sotsukon’ (graduating from marriage) are all part of the divorce landscape in this[…]
Life can be hard and divorce can make it even harder, so did you know that divorce impacts your health? Knowing that about 50% of marriages in America end in divorce and 1 in three marriages in Australia end in divorce, doesn’t make your own divorce any easier. The emotional and mental toll, often felt[…]
