CMS Legal has a team of divorce lawyers that is highly experienced in dealing with divorce and separation cases in Perth, WA.
Following the breakdown of a marriage you and your former partner may consider a divorce. An application for a divorce can be made if the marriage has irretrievably broken down and you have been living separately and apart for 12 months.
Do I need a Divorce Lawyer?
The breakdown of a marriage is one of the most confusing and emotional times in a person’s life. We understand this. CMS Legal divorce lawyers offer you objective and expert advice to take that next step. Our divorce lawyers can help you make or respond to an application for divorce and ensure you are aware of the many issues surrounding this step.
Can I apply for a divorce even though we still live in the same house?
There are certain circumstances where the Family Court in WA may grant a divorce if you have separated and are still living in the same house. This is called ‘separation under the one roof’.
What about our children?
In the event there are children under the age of 18 years, the Court will not grant a divorce unless it is satisfied that suitable arrangements have been made for your children.
To find out more about what constitutes separation under the one roof, discuss parenting and property arrangements or file an application of divorce, fill out our enquiry form or contact us to make an appointment with one of our Perth divorce lawyers.
