Family Law – The Case of Divorce

At Alf Lawyers, we know how difficult it is for people going through a tough time in their lives after a break-up. Because of this, we offer professional advice on what to do next after you decide it is time to file for a divorce. We also guarantee we will be with you in every step of the way until you get what you deserve. Our solicitors are experts when it comes to the family law so you will certainly be in good hands once we take over your case.

Dissolving Marriage

It is important to keep in mind that divorce only deals with the dissolving of marriage. In order to apply for this case, you and your partner must have been separated by at least a year.

It is also possible you will get marriage counselling if the marriage has lasted for less than 2 years so there is still a possibility for the relationship to rekindle the fire no matter how bleak that sounds. We are the best family law firm in Brisbane.

No Need for Consent from Partner

Believe it or not, there is no need for both parties to agree on the divorce. If one party thinks she has had enough of the marriage then she/he may file for divorce. Besides, it would be useless to be with someone you no longer want.

It would be better to move on with someone else that you prefer more. It is a good thing there is such thing as divorce so you won’t be stuck with someone who does not deserve you. Our solicitors will make sure you will end up happy despite a messy break-up.

Importance of Marriage Certificate


Our lawyers won’t be able to handle your case if you don’t have your original marriage certificate. This is why you should always keep it in a safe place because you never know when you will need it. Those who are not familiar with the family law won’t know you can actually apply for divorce even if you are still living with the partner you want to separate from.

If you want Alf Lawyers to handle how you are going to separate your joint properties with your ex-spouse, then we would gladly help but that’s completely another case.  Another thing to take note is that it won’t really matter why you want a divorce as it is a reason that does not need to be brought up in court.
