Divorce – where do I start?

There are certain requirements you must meet before you can apply for a divorce in Australia.

Fay can assist with the most common challenges people experience when a relationship is ending.

Some common questions Fay can discuss and guide you will include:

  • How soon can I get a divorce?
  • What if we have been living together for the separation period?
  • Is divorce possible if my partner doesn’t want to separate?
  • How soon can I remarry after divorce?
  • Is it possible to get divorced without a lawyer?
  • If we married overseas, can I get a divorce in Australia?

If your marriage has broken down and you have been separated for 12 months with no chance of reconciliation, you can apply for a divorce. This process can be stressful and emotional, but Fay can help sorting through the issues.

Finances and property

With over 44 years of experience, Fay can advise on all aspects of the breakdown in your relationship including division of property which will include real estate, bank accounts, superannuation entitlements and more.

Separation is not something you decide overnight. You normally think about it for months or years before you make a final decision. There are a lot of things to consider when you want to separate and one of the most concerning is your financial future.

Do you need maintenance from your partner to meet the bills?

Fay can assess and explain your financial position and assist in negotiating a settlement you both find fair and equitable.


If there are children involved in your relationship, you must have some arrangement in place to ensure the children are safe and are properly taken care of.

Where will the children live?  How much time will the children spend with each of the parents?  Who will pay child support for the children?

Fay is an experienced lawyer who understands that the welfare arrangements of your children are of paramount importance.
