The Townsville-based law firm works with clients through their parenting arrangements, division of marital property, child support and spousal support.

[07/02/2019, TOWNSVILLE] – Connolly Suthers helps divorcing couples resolve family disputes through a tailored approach that meet their clients’ unique financial and legal needs. The firm considers its clients’ needs and emotions into account when working on a case.

No-Fault Divorce in Australia

Connolly Suthers explains that couples in Australia do not need to identify the at-fault party in a divorce. A court does not consider the reasons behind the end of a marriage when granting an application. There are, however, requirements.

Couples who are filing for divorce need to have lived separately for at least 12 months. They may live in the same home but as a separated couple. Couples must also show there is no reasonable likelihood of getting back together.

The firm recommends couples seek legal advice first when getting a divorce in Australia. This is so they come to understand their rights and responsibilities. Connoly Suthers can work with couples when settling on the following concerns upon a divorce application:
• Parenting arrangements for the children
• The division of marital property
• Spousal maintenance
• Child support
