Below are our practice areas in family law:

A divorce application in NSW is a legal process for married couples who wish to end their marriage. To initiate the divorce proceedings, one party must submit a divorce application to the Federal Circuit Court of Australia. The application must meet specific requirements, including proof of the marriage, evidence of separation, and any relevant parenting arrangements.

 

After the application has been filed, the court will set a hearing date to review the application and decide on whether or not to grant the divorce. If the application is approved, a divorce order will be issued, and the marriage will be legally dissolved.

 

It is important to seek legal advice before submitting a divorce application in NSW to ensure that all legal requirements are met and to have a clear understanding of the process.

A Binding Financial Agreement (BFA), also known as a prenuptial agreement or a postnuptial agreement, is a legal document that sets out the division of assets and liabilities between parties in the event of a separation or divorce.

 

A BFA is a legally binding contract that can be entered into by married couples, de facto partners, or same-sex couples. The agreement can cover various financial matters, including property, investments, debts, and spousal maintenance.

 

For a BFA to be valid, both parties must obtain independent legal advice, and the agreement must be in writing, signed by both parties, and properly witnessed. The document must also meet specific legal requirements, including the disclosure of all relevant financial information by both parties.

 

A BFA can provide certainty and protection to both parties in the event of a separation or divorce, as it can prevent disputes and litigation over the division of assets and liabilities. However, it is important to seek legal advice before entering into a BFA, as the agreement can have significant legal and financial implications.

Child custody in NSW refers to the legal authority to make decisions about a child’s care and living arrangements. When parents separate or divorce, they may need to make arrangements for the care of their children. These arrangements can include parenting plans, consent orders, or court orders.

 

In NSW, the Family Law Act 1975 governs child custody arrangements. The Act encourages parents to work together to reach an agreement on the care of their children. However, in cases where parents cannot agree, the court may need to make a decision on the child’s living arrangements.

 

When making decisions about child custody, the court considers the best interests of the child as the paramount consideration. The court will take into account factors such as the child’s relationship with each parent, the child’s wishes (if they are of sufficient maturity), and the capacity of each parent to care for the child.

Child support in NSW is a form of financial assistance provided by one parent to the other for the care and upbringing of their child or children. Child support is an important aspect of family law in NSW and is governed by the Child Support (Assessment) Act 1989.

 

The child support scheme is designed to ensure that both parents contribute to the financial support of their children, regardless of whether they live together or apart. The scheme uses a formula to calculate the amount of child support payable by one parent to the other, based on factors such as the income of both parents, the number of children, and the level of care provided by each parent.

Parenting disputes in NSW can arise when separated or divorced parents cannot agree on the care arrangements for their children. These disputes can be emotionally challenging and complex, and it is important to seek legal advice to ensure that the best interests of the children are taken into account.

 

In parenting disputes, the court will consider the best interests of the child as the paramount consideration. Factors that the court may take into account include the child’s relationship with each parent, the child’s wishes (if they are of sufficient maturity), and the capacity of each parent to care for the child.

 

It is important to seek legal advice from a qualified family lawyer who can guide you through the process and provide you with the best options for resolving parenting disputes in NSW.

Property settlements are an important aspect of divorce proceedings in NSW. When a couple separates or divorces, they will need to divide their assets and liabilities fairly and equitably. This process is known as property settlement.

 

In NSW, property settlements are governed by the Family Law Act 1975. The Act provides a framework for dividing property between the parties based on a range of factors, including the length of the relationship, the contributions made by each party (both financial and non-financial), and the future needs of each party.

Spousal maintenance in NSW refers to the financial support paid by one spouse to the other after separation or divorce. It is designed to provide financial assistance to the spouse who is unable to support themselves adequately, usually due to factors such as age, illness, or caring responsibilities.

 

In NSW, spousal maintenance is governed by the Family Law Act 1975. The Act recognises that both spouses have a duty to support each other, and that this obligation continues even after separation or divorce.

 

Spousal maintenance can be paid in a lump sum or in regular instalments, and can be made for a fixed period or until a specific event occurs, such as the recipient spouse remarrying or becoming self-sufficient.

    I cannot express my gratitude to the Lyons law team with a big special mention to Mohammad. Having spent the last few years enduring and coping with the most difficult and stressful situation of me and my family's life.I have been using Mohammad and the team at Lyons Law from day one. They guided us through each difficult process in the most professional manner with full transparency, care and compassion.Through each difficult process up to the very last moment they only delivered results that exceeded every and anything we could have expected. Every outcome was exactly as planned and in turn got amazing results.So once again I cannot recommend Mohammad and the team at Lyons law enough. So like I and my Family did, have confidence that Lyons law will always strive for and deliver the best possible outcome.
