Divorce lawyers, Bendigo and Woodend

Divorce is the legal termination of a marriage as recognised in a court of law. Divorce is available after 12 months of separation. A Divorce Order takes effect one month after the application is made. A Divorce Certificate is issued after that time, at which point the parties are then free to marry. The team at JS Law can meet you at our Woodend or Bendigo office to provide advice. Divorce is never easy and can be a difficult time in a persons life.

Receiving good legal advice is imperative to ensure that your divorce proceeds as smoothly as possible with the best possible outcome on your behalf. Some of the benefits of working with an expert divorce lawyer include:

  • Expert advice
  • Correct documentation collection
  • Error free processing
  • A speedy and concise conclusion
  • Support and direction during a difficult time.

Throughout Australia (except W.A.) a Divorce Order revokes a gift of property or appointment of Trusteeship made in a Will in favour of a spouse.

There is a time limit of 12 months after a Divorce Order has taken effect to file an application for property or spousal maintenance except by leave of the court or consent of the parties.

Our experienced divorce lawyers can assist you to make an application for Divorce and if required represent you at the Divorce Hearing.

Please contact our solicitors in Bendigo or Woodend to book an appointment at your earliest convenience.
