The separation of a relationship can be difficult and upsetting for everybody involved, even at the best of times. Our staff at Kate Austin Family Lawyers appreciate how stressful this can be and recommend that you seek appropriate support both from a professional and a personal perspective.
Property settlement is the term given to the division of assets and liabilities of a relationship following a breakdown. There is a four-step approach that the Court takes before it makes a determination about how the property of a relationship should be divided.
Parenting arrangements that are in the best interests of children are critical for children’s welfare. We understand that parenting arrangements can be complicated, especially once a relationship has broken down, however our firm strives to achieve a workable outcome that families can work with and one which is in your children’s best interests.
Divorce proceedings are difference from property settlement proceedings, or arranging the ongoing and future arrangements for your children following a separation.
Divorce relates only to dissolving your marriage. You are unable to remarry until your divorce is finalised but there are timelines that apply and other important things you need to be aware of before an Application can be made.
Child support is money paid by one parent to the other for the benefit of the children of the parties’ relationship. By law, the primary responsibility for the cost of raising children rests with their parents.

Every year people die from domestic and family violence, even when there has been no history of physical violence. All forms of violence and controlling and obsessive behaviours should be taken seriously. Domestic Violence is an issue that arises all too commonly during family law separation and court proceedings. Despite it receiving more and more publicity it is unfortunately the case that thousands of cases of domestic violence continue to be reported in Australia each year.
