When do you need assistance from a Culshaw Miller Family Lawyer?
When the situation you are in may be one of the following:
Family Law: Divorce
In most cases a divorce is a simple procedure and most of the necessary paperwork can be submitted online. Some divorces however, such as those where one party contests the matter for one reason or another, or matters in which one of the parties to the divorce is unable to be located, can be much more complex and can require appearances in Court and take significantly longer. The family lawyers at Culshaw Miller can assist you with making the divorce process as smooth as possible. Read more about Divorce
Family Law: Property Settlements & Financial Settlements
Despite what you may have been told, there is not a ‘one size fits all’ family law model to say that everything is divided equally 50/50 or that one party gets ‘everything’. Your famil law case will be treated based upon its own facts. Every case is different and some facts will be relevant, and some will not be. Relevant factors will include your asset and liability position, initial contributions made and the contributions made throughout the relationship. Contributions can mean financial contributions and non-financial contributions. Values will be placed on these assets and an agreed asset pool will then be considered for distribution. Our family lawyers in Perth can assist Married, De facto couples and Same sex de facto couples. Read more about Property Settlements and Financial Settlements.
