Our Range Of Family Law Services
Rigoli Lawyers has over 30 years of experience in a wide range of family law matters, including the below, which we can assist you with in a professional and compassionate manner.
Applying For A Divorce
The primary grounds for divorce require that you have been separated for at least 12 months. There are times when one spouse is unable to leave the family home, which is referred to as “separation under the same roof“.
You must provide proof of such an arrangement in the form of corroboration from a family member or friend. An important factor for married couples is to ensure that you can present your marriage certificate as proof of marriage, which is also required in addition to proof of separation.
Domestic & Family Violence
Family and domestic violence can come in many different forms such as physical abuse, verbal abuse and other types of coercion such as financial control designed to intimidate and cause suffering.
Rigoli Lawyers can help you with immediate legal measures and protect you and your family.
Applying for an Intervention order
An intervention order will help to protect you as the courts will issue an order legally prohibiting any contact from the other party to you or your family where there is risk of harm from the other party.
Applying for a restraining order
A restraining order is very similar however sets out more specific restrictions and once set out by the courts can make it illegal for someone to come within a radius of your home or place of work. If breached both restraining and intervention orders can result in criminal prosecution by Police.
After a divorce case is started one question many may ask is – which assets are they are entitled to and how should assets be split?
Some assets may include:
- Property such as land or your home;
- Bank accounts (individual, joint accounts or children accounts);
- Collectable possessions such as artwork, memorabilia and anything else of value; and Intellectual property or the good will value of a business
We can help organise independent valuations with real estate agents and other experts to determine a property’s market value to help you split your assets accordingly and get what your entitled to.
Child Custody & Arrangements
When it comes to children involved in a divorce, the general assumption is that decision-making in these areas will be shared by both parents in order to protect the child or children’s best interests. However, there are times when this is simply not possible or there are safety concerns, such as domestic violence/abusive partners.
In these cases, if the parents cannot agree the Court will ultimately decide the outcome, which could include granting all responsibility to one of the parties or establishing “shared parental responsibility” arrangements for both parties.
