Advice

At Kate Austin Family Lawyers, we speak to clients dealing with the process of separation on a daily basis. Our divorce lawyers understand that separation can be a difficult and stressful experience. Often, separating parties are at completely different stages of dealing with the separation, with one party already having come to terms with the idea of separating and the other not even having realising that things had progressed to this stage.

Consent Orders

If separating parties are able to reach an agreement about the division of their assets, known as a property settlement, and the future arrangements for the care of their children, their agreement can be recorded in a written formalised document. Once signed by both parties, it can then be filed with the Family Court of Australia and the Court will make court orders or consent orders in accordance with the agreement reached, making the agreement legally binding.

Settlement Conferences

Settlement conferences can be a good option to help parties to reach a quick resolution to their family law issues.

A settlement conference is a meeting that usually takes place between the parties to a dispute, each party’s legal representative, and perhaps other important parties, such as a family accountant or a children’s counsellor if they can assist the parties in reaching a resolution.
