      Tips on How to Pick a Trusted Divorce Lawyer

      It is important to hire a divorce lawyer who will listen to what you want, advise you, and act in your best interest.

      Professionalism, knowledge, and responsiveness are key.

      Ideally, the lawyer should share your basic philosophy about divorce and someone you feel comfortable with.

      They should be someone who understands the importance you place on your children.

      Their goal is to assist you in fighting unreasonable child support or custody demands.

      In most cases, divorce is highly personal and emotionally charged. Divorce can sometimes bring out the worst in people.

      It is important to remember, however, that a divorce’s outcome can significantly impact everyone involved.

      If you later realize you hired the wrong lawyer for your divorce, changing the lawyer is possible, but paying attention to the selection process can save you time and heartache.

      Australia As A No-Fault Divorce Country

      In Australia, divorce is granted on a “no-fault” basis.

      This means that individuals seeking a divorce do not have to prove that one spouse is at fault for the marriage breakdown.

      Instead, the requirement is simply to show that the marriage has irretrievably broken down, and there is no chance of reconciliation.

      Our divorce lawyers can thoroughly evaluate your situation and advise you on the best course of action based on your legal rights.

      Steps On Getting A Divorce

      1. Obtain proof of marriage through a marriage certificate. The certificate should be translated into English if it is in a different language. If you don’t have a certificate, you can seek help from family law experts to obtain one.
      2. Complete an online divorce application using the comcourts portal, which will guide you through the process.
      3. Submit the application online and pay the filing fee.
      4. Notify your ex-spouse. You can file a joint application if they agree to the divorce and sign the application. If not, you must serve the divorce application on your ex-spouse 28 days before the divorce hearing (or 42 days if they live abroad).
      5. Determine if a court appearance is necessary. If the application is a sole application and there are children under 18, a court appearance is required. Otherwise, it may not be necessary.
