By Andrew Banna, a Principal of Matthews Folbigg, in our Family Law Group
Our Family Law Group consists of 7 family law lawyers. We have 4 Accredited Specialists in the area.
We have been recognised as one of the leaders in the Family Law market through Doyles rankings.
We specialise in all aspects of family law such as divorce.
A lot of clients come to our family law lawyers for assistance with a divorce. Despite the common misconception, a divorce actually does not involve sorting out your parenting or property matters. A divorce simply means dissolving your marriage because you want to remarry or you just would like to formalise what is happening in your life.
You can’t apply to the Court for a divorce until you have been separated for at least 12 months. There are special rules where you can be separated under the one roof which requires extra documentation. However, unless you have been separated for 12 months you can’t commence the process.
