What are the key differences in QLD family law compared to other states and jurisdictions?

The laws surrounding marriage, divorce and life after separation are all set federally. This means that wherever you get divorced in Australia, you have to go through the same process and are subject to the same rules. 

The key law in this scenario is The Family Law Act (1975) but your case may also touch on:

  • The Marriage Act 1961
  • Child Support (Registration and Collection) Act 1988
  • Child Support (Assessment) Act 1989

How much does a family lawyer cost in Varsity Lakes?

As every family law matter can be very different, it can be difficult to give a definitive estimate of what your legal fees will be. The complexity of your personal circumstances and the willingness of the other party to engage in meaningful negotiations can have a big impact on the work needed to resolve your matter and your overall legal costs. But rest assured, our experienced team will work tirelessly to find the best possible outcome for you and your family.

  • Additionally, we’ll explain how and why your legal fees may change over the duration of your family law matter. We’ll communicate your options to you throughout, while ensuring that no corners are cut and that any settlement is in your best interests.
