Divorce Judgements

 

While the divorce process is differs for all parties, most divorces begin with each party obtaining legal advice. The family lawyers at Dukeshire Law Office can guide you through the process from filing for divorce to understanding its effects on your family and children.  

Child Support

Child support is the money paid to help cover the expenses of raising children. There are two types of child support: Section 3 Table Amount and Section 7 Special or Extraordinary Expenses child support. We can help you understand your child support entitlements or obligations.

Child Custody

 

Children are intimately involved when a family breaks down and their parents separate, so keeping their rights protected is important. Our lawyers can strongly advocate for your child's rights to ensure you have the best possible arrangement for your children. Even though family law holds both parents responsible for the safety and well-being of the child, it may be necessary to seek legal assistance for child custody from a family law lawyer to reach a fair agreement.

Spousal Support

 

Spousal support is money that one spouse gives to another as monetary compensation to ease their incapability to maintain a standard of living or to help with some financial trouble that one spouse endured due to something that happened during the marriage or its breakdown.

 

Property and Asset Division

Whether parties are cohabiting or married, parting or divorce means couples dividing their intertwined economic lives and distributing their assets and liabilities. To resolve those concerns in a legally enforceable way, which protects both, they need to sign a contract to get an arbitration award or a court judgment. Read our blog to learn more about how the Family Property Act applies to adult interdependent relationships. 

Separation Agreement

 

A properly drawn-up separation agreement acts as a legally enforceable contract between you and your spouse when you divorce. At Dukeshire Law Office, we can assist you with the right document so that you and your spouse can work out the key details concerning children, property, support payments, among others.

Prenuptial Agreement

 Preparing a prenuptial agreement may be a good strategy if you are getting married and want to protect assets from a possible marriage breakdown. This means you get to decide on property division, spousal support, and other issues if you separate and divorce.

 

Cohabitation Agreement

Cohabitation agreements are generally negotiated by people who plan to live together but do not necessarily wish to marry. This agreement aims to describe how assets would be distributed in the case of a relationship breakdown and to deal with issues of Adult Interdependent Support and dependent children.
