Divorce Lawyers Gold Coast
Obtaining a Divorce officially ends a marriage. You can apply for a Divorce twelve (12) months from the date you and your spouse separate.
Experienced Gold Coast Divorce Lawyers
Your separation date is essentially the date when your marriage permanently broke down and either party separately, or jointly with the other spouse, determined that there was no reasonable likelihood that you would resume married life with your spouse.
A Divorce only finalises the end of a marriage and does not deal with issues relating to your children or property settlement. It is essentially an Order of the Court that says you and your partner are no longer married and enables you to marry again. The Divorce Application can be made jointly with your former spouse or solely by you.
A Divorce does not impact how much you receive from your property settlement. It does, however, trigger an important time limitation which you must be aware of, and that is once your Divorce Order issues, you will have twelve (12) months to finalise your property matters
We believe that you should engage an experienced Gold Coast Family Law Lawyers to complete the Divorce process however, the Federal Magistrate Court website provides a helpful kit for those who do not wish to engage a Solicitor.

The Impact of Divorce on Children
One of the most difficult parts of going through a divorce is its effect on the children.
If you have children below eighteen (18), the Court will only grant a Divorce if you can satisfy the Court that proper arrangements have been made for your children.
Does a Divorce Impact Your Property Settlement?
Essentially, your Divorce is an Order of the Court saying you and your partner are no longer married. It does not affect how much you receive from your property settlement. However, it triggers an important time limitation that you must be aware of — once your Divorce Order is issued, you will have twelve (12) months to finalise your property matters
