Australian Family Law has been established to oversee important matters when spouses separate. A fair and just intermediary is often required to settle property matters, maintenance orders and children’s issues, and legal representatives work within the Family Law Act 1975. The only ground required for divorce in Australia is irretrievable breakdown of the relationship, so establishing your rights and responsibilities with the help of Taylor & Scott Family Lawyers could save you time, money and heartache in the long run.
