30 Aug How Separation Lawyers Can Aid In A Smooth Separation
In Australia, if you want to apply for divorce, there must be proof that you and your spouse have been separated for at least 12 months. Some couples find ways to resolve their issues during the separation period and end up back together. But in most instances, separation does lead to once-partners ultimately leading lives independent from one another.
As painful as separations are, they are something that many people need to deal with. Very few separations go perfectly according to plan (if there even was a plan in the first place). Still, a smooth, respectful separation is 100% better than a messy drama-filled separation.
While a separation lawyer is not a necessary requirement for a separation, experienced lawyers can certainly aid in a smooth separation that goes according to plan. As separation lawyers in Sydney, here are a few of the ways we can assist.
Provide You With Important Legal Information
If you’ve never gone through a separation before, a separation lawyer can really assist you by providing you with all the legal information that you need. This can help prepare you and let you know what to expect from the procedure and what options are available to you.
A separation lawyer will take the time to listen to your side of the story and what you hope to gain from the separation and ultimate divorce. To help you achieve your goals and the best possible outcome, your lawyer will offer you helpful and professional advice.
Help You Remove Emotion
Emotional turmoil does not work in your favour when it comes to smooth separations. If you are highly emotionally charged, you could do things or say things you may regret. Your lawyer will lay the facts on the table and help you remove heightened emotions from your situation.
There are many urban myths regarding separations and divorces. Separation lawyers can dispel these myths for you and ensure that your expectations are realistic to avoid disappointment later.
