As the name suggests, family law covers matters relating to familial relationships. In other words – marriage, separation, divorce, adoption, child custody and so on. While some of these events are obviously joyous ones, some can be traumatic for the parties involved. However, it is important to remember that, under Australian family law, there are always legal rights and obligations which must be considered.
For this reason, Dr Craig Jensen Lawyers recommends seeking family legal advice as soon as you make a major change to your family status – e.g. by separating from your partner – and preferably before. It is better to be aware of all of your legal options prior to taking such action, in order to make the best decisions for everyone. Family law in Australia is highly complex and might well be confusing without expert assistance.
Dr Craig Jensen Lawyers can handle any type of Australian family law matter, but two areas where it’s worth expanding on our many services are Divorce Law and Property Settlements. We’ll look at each of those below.
With expertise in family law matters, Dr Craig Jensen Lawyers can guide you through the early stages of the Australian divorce process, ensuring you are aware of all relevant legal issues.
If you are considering seeking an annulment of marriage – where the union is declared null and void as if it never occurred upon a successful annulment – we can provide you with appropriate guidance on this matter. Should you wish to file for a divorce (i.e. to have the marriage declared as legally over), we can help with preparing and serving the papers.
Whatever the details of your case – and this goes for the following section, too – we can provide legal representation in court.
In the introduction, we noted how certain family-law situations may be traumatic for the parties involved. Sadly, property settlements often fall into that category. All the more reason to have your settlement overseen by legal professionals who understand the applicable Australian family laws inside and out, and who have assisted many others through the same process. You’ll then at least have peace of mind knowing you are addressing all responsibilities and not making any costly mistakes.
So, when it comes to property settlements, Dr Craig Jensen Lawyers can handle binding financial agreements, consent orders, and the overall division of assets and liabilities. We can also steer you through superannuation splits and spousal maintenance. Pertaining to property specifically, we can guide you through every possibility – preservation, transfer, arbitration, etc.
