One of the best things you can do after you separate is to arrange an appointment with a family lawyer. This will help you to understand your legal entitlements and guide you through the process to ensure you know your rights and what to expect. Sometimes it is even helpful to attend before you separate depending on your circumstances.

Separating from your partner can be stressful and having to deal with lawyers can add to the stress. Our family lawyers are here to help you through every step of the process and to try and take away some of the anxiety and uncertainty by explaining the process and what is required from and your partner.

Our family lawyers will help you navigate the legal process and explain the different options available to settle your matter in the most timely and cost efficient manner. In the initial meeting they will listen to you explain your circumstances and be able to provide you guidance and direction. You will leave the meeting knowing what needs to be done and the most efficient way to achieve the results. Our family lawyers will work with you as a team to ensure you are kept informed and have control over how your matter is run.

Whilst some relationships end up happily ever after, sadly a large number don’t. It is important to have the right person guiding you through the process.
