Yes. Lots of people come and talk to us because they believe their relationship may break down in the not too distant future. This is usually a good idea as you are able to learn what the procedure ahead of you is and what you might be entitled to which will make the street ahead less daunting for you. Therefore, you will know in advance what'll happen in the event you decide to keep the relationship or vice-versa. What you check with us is private and therefore, we'd on no account tell your partner that you've come to see us.

In addition to the factors outlined above, a Financial Agreement will only be binding if honest and full disclosure has been made of all resources held by both parties12

Money (as the tune goes) changes everything, and enough horror stories have emerged to warrant consideration of safeguards when selecting the content of one's power of attorney, even if you trust the attorney implicitly. Instances might be including limitations on how a power might be used, appointing different attorneys for financial and lifestyle decisions, appointing two or more attorneys who must make decisions collectively and not appointing someone as executor of one's will and as both the lawyer. Your solicitor will have other suggestions. Should you need advice from a Brisbane family lawyer contact us now to make an appointment for a short consultation

Contact relates to the day to day treatment of a child and the legal rights and obligations necessary to carry out that obligation. This does not include the power to make longer-term decisions about a child for example training, religion or health besides in medical emergencies. The law also considers the responsibility for the long-term welfare of the child. This consists of the power to make decisions about the health, education and faith. Under the family Law Act parents are each guardians of the young ones and are jointly entitled to be responsible for the children’s long-term welfare and improvement until the Court Orders otherwise.

If you're male, in need of legal aid to benefit your separation, divorce or family parenting or property settlements you'd better be prepared to go it alone! Except if you act quickly. There is a game that women play. Legal firms, legal aid, group legal centres and perhaps the Public-interest Legal Clearing House get into this game. Why? Maybe to protect their profitable revenue stream from men. This game is called a “conflict of Interest”. I certainly can’t spell out how it works, because some audiences of the article could be educated by it and use it against their ex-husband. But it’s quite effective.

In situations where there has been domestic violence, or family violence, since it is usually referred to, no such assumption applies. It is far more likely that a parent who is seeking main decision-making power about major long-term issues is more likely to be given that power by the Court in circumstances where there has been family violence since the presumption of equal shared parental responsibility no longer applies. Eventually the Court must take a decision in connection adult responsibility, which it considers to be consistent with the child's best interests.
