Our family law team in Southport understand this and they understand your unique situation. Led by Accredited Family Law Specialist, Rachel Gillies, the team can be relied on for worthwhile advice and representation.

Here are some of the most common family law issues and questions our Southport family solicitors resolve for our clients.

Child abuse and child safety

Go To Court’s Southport lawyers are experienced in appearing in the Federal Circuit and Family Courts. Being able to act quickly, our lawyers can obtain urgent recovery orders when the unthinkable happens.

Our lawyers regularly handle issues which specifically concern the movement and safety of children. We can apply for urgent recovery orders – court orders which returns a child to the person who has parental responsibility for them. Recovery orders are often necessary if the child is being kept in an unsafe environment.

Go To Court’s Southport lawyers often assist clients with cases that concern child abduction. These cases involve the other parent threatening or actually taking the child overseas and refusing to return.

Family law and bankruptcy

Many clients ask our Southport team about how bankruptcy can affect a property or financial settlement. In these cases, a person to a de facto or spousal relationship is declared bankrupt, this can have a significant impact on the outcome.

Your rights to property settlement will be affected differently depending on whether you are the bankrupt party or you are the non-bankrupt party. Under the Family Law Act 1975, there is specific criteria to determine who can get what in this situation.

As your situation is entirely unique, it is important to seek legal advice as soon as possible to obtain the best advice and ensure all of your options. If you are looking for more general information before you pick up the phone, we have more information in our dedicated article, Bankruptcy and Family Law Matters.

Financial agreements

Prenuptial agreements, or financial agreements as they are called in the Family Law Act 1975, allow parties to a couple to agree on what to do with their financial assets in the event that their relationship breaks down. These agreements are extremely useful and most family lawyers will recommend that a couple have one done up, particularly if there is a house or significant financial assets that one party has brought into the relationship.

Our Southport family lawyers are experienced in drawing up a financial agreement and ensuring it is binding. They can also provide candid and reliable advice to all of your questions and concerns.

More about financial agreements can be found in our article, Prenuptial Agreements in Australia.
