When a married couple’s relationship breaks down due to issues that cannot be resolved, the couple has a right to divorce according to Australian law.

Parenting Arrangements

Ferrall & Co. are passionate about supporting families and seeing the best outcomes achieved, especially for the children involved in a family separation.

Property Settlement

When couples separate, they need to fairly divide their property that they acquired during their relationship. Property in this case doesn’t just mean real estate.

Under the Family Law, same sex couples have the same rights in both de facto relationships and in marriage as heterosexual couples.
