Frequently Asked Questions

Finding the right Adelaide lawyer to resolve your legal matters can be difficult. But at YLP – Your Legal Partner, we want to make it simpler by answering some of your family law questions.

Quite simply, divorce is the legal recognition of the end of a marriage. The parties must be legally separated for 12 months to qualify for a divorce and prove that the marriage has irretrievably broken down. In Australia, it’s not necessary to prove who was at fault for the marriage breakdown, and our caring, highly experienced family lawyers at YLP – Your Legal Partner will provide you with the advice you need about obtaining a divorce.

Property settlement (also known as property division) is the process of bringing to an end the financial relationship between a separated couple, whether they’re married or in a de facto relationship. Property between the parties, including assets and liabilities, is considered and is formalised either by agreement or an order of the court. At YLP – Your Legal Partner, we’re experts in handling property settlements, so you can be assured that we’ll provide you with honest, compassionate advice to ensure you obtain the best outcome.

De facto relationships are governed under family law and therefore have the same rights as married couples. As such, these relationships are dealt with similarly to married couples by the Family Court. And to ensure you receive the best advice concerning your specific circumstances, our highly experienced family lawyers at YLP – Your Legal Partner will support and guide you every step of the way to ensure your rights are protected.

Not necessarily. The parties to the dispute can agree on the issues (whether it be parenting/custodial orders, property settlements, etc.) with the assistance of their legal representatives. The court can then formalise these agreed arrangements as consent orders. But if the parties can’t agree, then the matter is presided over by the Family Court. So, whatever your individual circumstances, you can trust the caring, highly skilled Adelaide lawyers at YLP – Your Legal Partner to resolve your family dispute.

It’s important to understand that your child’s best interests are paramount in family law and, as such, are recognised by the Family Court. Separated parties are encouraged to amicably arrange for the care of their children while a parenting plan is agreed upon. If the parties can’t agree, the Family Court steps in to assist and make relevant orders for the child’s care, education, and wellbeing. So, to ensure the best outcome for you and your child, you can rely on the advice of the caring, professional lawyers at YLP – Your Legal Partner.
