Divorce Lawyers Sydney
Applying for a divorce can often be a very emotional experience. Obtaining a divorce is not about who may or may not be at fault, the court is only concerned with whether or not there is any possibility that you can work things out. If this is not possible, there are various steps you need to undertake to prove this to the court.
Divorce can often become complicated and stressful, especially when children are involved.
In the situation of the breakdown of a relationship, the issue of children can often play on your mind if you are making an application for divorce. In most cases, children have strong bonds with both parents and seeing their parents in conflict may place emotional and psychological burdens on the children. If you are in such a situation, our lawyers will be able to assist you in completing the process quickly so to minimise any hostility that may exist and to make this situation as easy as possible on all parties involved.
Although divorce can be a relatively simple legal process there are some statutory requirements that need to be met. There are easy to follow instructions available online which may assist you, however it is advisable that you speak to a solicitor first so that you are aware of your rights and obligations and to give yourself the best chance of reaching an understanding with your partner that best suits your children.
