When and how do I start the process of hiring a family lawyer?

We recommend that you start the process of finding a family lawyer as soon as you and your partner have decided that separation is highly likely. It’s important to gain clarity on your rights and entitlements early in the process and to get the support you need to handle the legal issues  surrounding your separation. Start the process by calling our office to book an appointment with one of our experienced legal professionals on (08) 8373 3363.

 

My partner has already issued proceedings, what should I do?

If your partner or spouse has issued proceedings from the Federal Circuit Court of Australia or Family Court of Australia, contact a lawyer immediately. You will need to respond to these proceedings as soon as possible, strict time frames will apply.

D’Angelo Lawyers will take care of your case with integrity and care. Contact us today to book your appointment.
