Our Townsville divorce lawyers are experienced, assertive, confident and know how to apply the law to your circumstances. At Donnie Harris Law, ‘Divorce’ doesn’t have to be a dirty word. We have trusted and dedicated divorce lawyers who will guide you through what can often be a difficult process with empathy and understanding. This is a very stressful time in your life. We want to help you in the most effective way possible, whether that be to help you draft divorce applications or simply provide you with accurate information and advice so that you know your rights.
Sometimes, divorce can be tricky and you will need a trusted team to assist in a more hands on way, from service of your divorce application when your partner is trying their hardest to avoid it, or to proving that you and your former partner have been separated despite still living together under the one room.
Whatever the case may be, in your time of need you can be sure that with Donnie Harris Law our Townsville divorce lawyers will endeavour to work with you to deliver the service that you need.
Separation arises where there is no reasonable prospect of the parties reconciling. Separation can arise even when parties are living under the one roof although it may be more difficult to prove.
To apply for divorce, you have to be separated from your former partner for at least 12 months. Attempts to reconcile during the 12 month period may either extend the period, or cause it to recommence, depending on the number of times the parties have endeavoured to reconcile.
We recommend that you consult a Townsville divorce lawyer about your circumstances and if possible, before separation occurs. This way you are making decisions fully informed and are less likely to make mistakes. You are also planning for the possibility well in advance which results in better outcomes for you.
