Separation and Divorce
Ending a relationship can be difficult, especially if only one of you wants to separate. We can help with all areas around this sensitive topic, from preparing and filing the Dissolution Order paperwork necessary for a divorce, to helping you divide your property, and creating separation agreements so there are no misunderstandings.
Where possible, we can negotiate with your ex-partner’s lawyer on your behalf, or we can represent you in Family Court if a private settlement cannot be reached.
If you’re in danger or need immediate help, call 111 and ask for the police.
The police can provide Safety Orders for your protection while we prepare court Protection Orders, both of which stop the offender from contacting you.
A person does not have to live with you for their actions to be considered domestic abuse. They could be a friend or relative who you have a close domestic relationship with. If someone who is not close to you is making you fear for your safety, we can help you apply for a Restraining Order instead.
While separating can be stressful, looking after your children will be one of your main concerns.
If you can both agree on care arrangements, we can formalize them into a Consent Order. That means your agreement can be enforced if your partner doesn’t keep to their side of the deal.
Where parents or guardians can’t agree on how you’ll care for your children, we can mediate and negotiate privately with your ex-partner’s lawyer, or through Family Court channels.
