[TOWNSVILLE, 03/12/2018] – Connolly Suthers is a reputable law firm in Townsville that assists couples through the process of divorce and provides assistance and advice on other family law issues. Their legal services include compensation law, criminal law, dispute resolution, wills and estates, business services and property law.
Process of Divorce
The team of family lawyers at Connolly Suthers provides legal advice to couples in order for the parties to be aware of their responsibilities and rights before applying for a divorce.
Obtaining a divorce in Australia does not require for one party to be at fault. The only requirement is that couples should have lived separately for 12 months without the likelihood of continuing their married lives. Couples can also file for a divorce when they have separated as a couple even when they are still living together.
Either of the married couples can apply for a divorce when:
• They are an Australian citizen by birth, granted Australian citizenship or by descent
• They have lived in Australia for 12 months before filing for a divorce
• Australia is their home, and they intend to live there indefinitely
Connolly Suthers’ family lawyers also guide divorced couples when settling issues such as the division of their marital property, parenting arrangements for their children, spousal maintenance and child support.
