Should I get a lawyer to help me with my divorce? The simple answer is yes.

For someone with no legal background it may be difficult to understand the strict rules and requirements of Divorce Applications but for a Family Lawyer this is second nature.

At Cominos Lawyers we have successfully represented hundreds of clients in Divorce Matters. These are some of the ways how we can remove the stress for you:

1. Communication

Regardless of whether the separation was amicable or hostile, communication after separation may feel uncomfortable for some people. This is where we assist you.

When you retain our services, we will handle all communications with your spouse on your behalf. You will not have to worry about a thing.

2. Service

Service is a requirement, not an option. If you file a sole application for divorce, you must serve the application on your spouse. You need to arrange to serve the sealed documents on your spouse and ask them to sign the Acknowledgement of Service.

The Federal Circuit and the Family Court of Australia (Family Law) Rules 2021 have strict rules about the service of a Divorce Application, if the rules of service are not complied with, the court may adjourn or dismiss your application.

As Family Lawyers we are familiar with the rules and requirements of service. We work closely with Process Servers; we can enlist their services on your behalf and ensure you comply with your legal obligations.

3. Fixed Fee

We offer fixed-fee services for divorce meaning there are no hidden or additional fees. We will disclose our fees upfront so you know how much you will be paying in legal fees before retaining our services. We are open and upfront with our clients.

4. No stress

No doubt divorce and separation are one of the biggest life-changing decisions you will make. A good Family Lawyer can help you navigate the legal world and remove your stress.

We will monitor and manage the progress of your divorce application and keep you updated at every stage. We will appear for you at the Divorce Hearing (if a hearing is required) and ensure you are fully briefed about what to expect at the Divorce Hearing.

Retaining the services of a Family Lawyer is an investment for a stress-free divorce.

Let us help you move forward in life. Contact us today to find out how.
