Choosing the best family lawyer can make all the difference

In the event of a Defacto relationship or marriage breakdown it is important to determine the division of property. The main objective of the court in determining a property settlement under the Family Law Act 1975 (Cth) is to finally determine the financial relationships between the parties to the marriage or de facto relationship and avoid further proceedings between them.

In approaching property settlements, it is important that:

  1. We identify and value the assets, liabilities and financial resources of the parties;
  2. We identify and assess the contributions made by the parties;
  3. We evaluate matters including (but not limited to) age, state of health, income and who cares for the child; and
  4. The court be satisfied, in all circumstances of the case, that it is just and equitable to make the orders.

Banga Legal, your family law experts, are experienced in:

  • Divorce applications

  • Custody and arrangements for children

  • De facto relationships

  • Family violence restraining orders

  • Property matters and division of assets

  • Binding financial agreements

  • Same sex relationships

It is important to seek clarification of your relationship for children and property orders as the Family Law Act 1975 (Cth) has different criteria according to your relationship status.

Family law encompasses property matters, children/parenting matters and more. Parenting orders are a set of orders made by a court with regard to parenting arrangements for a child, either by consent or after a court hearing or trial. A parenting order can deal with such details as who a child will live with, the time the child will spend with each parent and other people, such as grandparents, parental responsibility, communication and any other aspect of the care, welfare and development of the child.

Our expert family lawyers also deal with family law matters that consist of trusts, commercial setup and complexity that other solicitors can’t.

Of importance is our criminal law expertise, this is because we understand the overlap between the family law jurisdiction and the criminal law jurisdiction. This can seem overwhelming but Banga Legal is here to support you and guide you through all the complexities.

We will answer your questions:

  • What you are legally entitled to?
  • How to manage your separation and apply for divorce
  • What will happen to children and custody?
