Legal Advice


We know facing a divorce can be difficult for everyone involved, which is why our family lawyers handle these situations with patience and compassion.

We will lodge your Application for Divorce and strive to get you the best possible outcome based on the relationship and your current situation.

Before seeking a Divorce there are some things you will need to consider. You and your spouse must have lived separately and apart for a period of at least 12 months, with no reasonable likelihood of resuming your relationship. If you and your spouse are separated but remain living under the same roof, you will need to provide to the Court evidence from an independent party to support the separation.

If you have been married for less than 2 years, it is still possible to apply for a divorce, however the parties must comply with counselling requirements, unless there are circumstances in which this is not appropriate.

We strongly recommend you seek legal advice prior to applying for a Divorce. Once a Divorce is final you must make any necessary applications for property adjustment, parenting orders, or spousal maintenance within 12 months, otherwise your application may be statute barred without the leave of the Court being sought.

Bruce and his team have a thorough knowledge of the Divorce process and are able to assist you in filing your divorce application and - if needed - advise you on your property and children's issues.

It is important for you to know that marriage revokes your Will but Divorce does not.
